Do you think it was a mistake for the police to not give the Boston suspect his Miranda rights?

I believe so, no matter who you are or what you did. It's apart of the U.S law.

Im sure they will or have by now. It doesnt have to be done on scene. He went to the hospital first so hes in police custody but until he is formally booked they dont have to mirandize him. Also he is in federal custody under the FBI and Homeland Security. Their rules are different, esp since the Patriot Act. Hes being considered a terrorist which means they could disappear him and there would be nothing anyone could do about it.

under the NDAA if the president thinks/knows your a terrorist you can be held without reason, at that point I dont think it would stick/matter.

The Miranda rights are: ?You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me??
In certain cases, such as a threat to national security, the suspect is not given his Miranda Rights. By allowing the suspect to remain silent, they are allowing him to withhold information that could save lives.
