You Have the Right to Remain Silent – California Bill Strengthens Mirand...





Take Action: http://fairsentencingforyouth.org/mir... Currently in California, children—no matter how young— can waive their Miranda rights. When law enforcement conducts a custodial interrogation, they are required to recite basic constitutional rights to the individual, known as Miranda rights, and secure a waiver of those rights before proceeding. The waiver must be voluntarily, knowingly, and intelligently made. Miranda waivers by juveniles present distinct issues. Recent advances in cognitive science research have shown that the capacity of youth to grasp legal rights is less than that of an adult. This is especially true for very young, developmentally disabled, or cognitively delayed children, and for those with mental health problems.

Locked Up In A Philippine Jail Cell

Scott was detained in the Muntinlupa City jail in metropolitan Manila for 5 long years. Again I repeat he was simply detained. No trial was ever held.


Scott's ordeal began after he had words with a neighbor whom he accused of traumatizing one of his children. Scott then filed legal papers against the neighbor. 
.
In retaliation against Scott, the neighbor filed legal papers against Scott and accused him of rape. The PNP(Philippine National Police) arrested Scott immediately and detained him.

McMahon, who has two children with his Filipino fiancee, had been detained since April 7, 2011. Scott holds the dubious distinction of the foreign national who has been held the longest in detention with no formal trial or hearing.

Scott's mother Shelley Campanella, began a social media campaign to free her son. Websites demanding his release and requesting donations for legal help sprung up. Facebook, and other media formats were used as well.

Shelley hired lawyers and also appealed to the united Nations but to no avail.

Miraculously, On August 2, 2016 a judge reviewed evidence in the case and the evidence was flimsy and orders Scott to be released.

I review the conditions of a Philippine Jail and encourage viewers on how to relate with Filipinos regarding disputes.

When a Filipino or Filipina has been shamed and lost face, they will go to any length to retaliate.
