Miranda Rights: Dilemma in use

Published 18 Sep 2017

Rights are not just simple rights. They are the basis of the performance of the constitution, the law and the government. Failure to provide a better rule for the rest of the people in a country or perhaps in the whole world would mean of incapability to run a government or an institution. The rights of the people is the key to live a peaceful life or that was what we people believed in but underlies each rights are the limitations and boundaries to prevent the over use of such power.

One of the most famous rights there is perhaps is the Miranda Rights. This does not limit the person arrested to be unable to protect himself thus Miranda rights allow the arrested person to have the choice whether he shall remain silent or he will immediately talk. Miranda Rights are not just like any other rights. This is specialized for the people arrested by the authorities thus this makes this right clearly unbiased.

Despite of the goodness that Miranda Rights bring, we have to take it to the account that not all people should perhaps know this upon arrest. It has been a common knowledge to almost all people and perhaps mentioning it on an arrest is very helpful but as far as I am concern, when it comes to private security personnel, there is no need to recite these rights.

While people who do not have any idea of the Miranda Rights, the private security personnel have an idea about this already thus we must understand that if involved in a case, this personnel must talked as soon as he can to either clear his name or perhaps put his name in vain. These people are the key in cases thus their silence would no help any good in solving a case.

In this line, Miranda Rights should not be required when a private security personnel is involved because the key statements would somehow come from this people thus a clear understanding of the case will be given if the person will not be given the chance to remain silent. The idea of prohibiting Miranda Rights in cases like this does not mean that we are limiting the rights to some people only but rather it gives us a fair judgment by having an easier way out of the case.
