** As the original book ''Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets'' points out, ''Miranda'' is essentially a compromise between a court system that wants to see the rights of the accused protected, and a society that wants to see crimes punished 6(because confessions are, by and large, the most effective vehicle for that).

Added DiffLines:

* In fiction, sometimes suspects get OffOnATechnicality because the arresting officer forgot to read their Miranda Rights. Setting aside how unlikely this would be, this tends to be incorrectly treated as automatically resulting in dismissing the case. It is rarely brought up that this only affects any statements the suspect made under arrest. Any evidence the police had uncovered by unrelated means would still be valid.

* Parodies at the end of ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersTorment'' when the surviving villains are hauled away:
-->'''[=PaniK=]:''' This isnít over! The Order of the Dark God will rise again! [[LargeHam Soon, youíll all know the meaning of true fear!]]
-->'''Roxy:''' Oh, [=PaniK=], [[ShutUpHannibal shut up!]] Do us all a favor and start taking advantage of your right to remain silent! [[note]]What makes this hilarious is that Roxy is ''another'' villain being arrested; the other bad guys are as sick of [=PaniK=] as the good guys are.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/PatriotsDay'' Averted in the movie and in real life. Katherine Russell Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were questioned without being read their rights under the "public safety exemption" to Miranda. In fact when the orders came in to not read Katherine her rights the police who heard that order was trying to figure out who had the authority to give that order.
** Brought up again soon afterwords when Katherine tried to lawyer up and the interrogator said no.

* VideoGame/{{Prototype}}: "You have the right to be ventilated. I have the right to burn your home and shoot your dog. Do you understand these rights as I have read them to you?"
* Marcus in TrueCrimeNewYorkCity parodies this. "You have the right to an attorney and some other shit I can't remember." In the first installment, the protagonist sometimes says to suspects after beating them up and cuffing them: "You have the right to remain - unconscious!"

* NancyDrew references this when she strays onto the set of a cop film set in the '50s, noting that it would be anachronistic for [[TheCameo Bruce Willis]] to read the rights. Bruce takes this in stride. The director does not. She does not, however, give the correct date.
