    Church says officers cuffed him to a bench for an estimated 17 hours, intermittently interrogating him without reading his Miranda rights to remain silent.

When are journalist going to learn that no one has a right to be read Miranda, it just effects what evidence can be used against you in trial if you have not. I find it infuriating. Maybe the journalist knows this and just wants to throw that in because they know that Americans are misinformed about Miranda and it will seem like an outrage to them if told a subject wasn't read their Miranda rights.
