Miranda v. Arizona
Judicial activism at its worst.
Our Constitution guarantees certain rights, none of which involve being given a civics lesson prior to being questioned by authorities.
It is almost always the case that ignorance of the law is no defense.
How can ignorance of the highest law of our land not be a defense as well?
At the very least, when a defendant attempts the defense of having not been "Mirandized" by authorities, the prosecution should determine said defendant's actual knowledge of his/her rights per the U.S. Constitution.
