On the arrest of American citizen and alleged Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, Sen. John McCain had this to say:
"Don't give this guy his Miranda rights until we find out what it's all about..."Note to John McCain:
Law enforcement doesn't "give" Shahzad—or anyone else—the right to remain silent, or any other rights, for that matter. How do I know? Because it's written in the Declaration of Independence.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights
The natural extension of the statement made in the Declaration of Independence is in our United States Constitution, which also does not grant rights but acknowledges rights bestowed by our Creator. That's the whole point! These are rights that NO MAN can take away—not a king, not a president, and certainly not a washed up senator for Arizona.
For some reason John McCain (and too many others) leave their reverence of both documents at the door when "terrorism" is involved.
