As he continued onwards, Jack turned the truck around and backed it up into the loading and unloading bay, wondering where everyone was. Usually there was someone waiting. “Error, 404, licence plate not found, dispatch security?

The “Miranda” warning is the name of the formal warning that is required to be given by police in the United States to criminal suspects in police custody before they are interrogated, in accordance with the Miranda ruling.

After two hours of interrogation by police officers, Miranda signed a confession to the rape charge on forms that included the typed statement "I do hereby swear that I make this statement voluntarily and of my own free will, with no threats, coercion, or promises of immunity, and with full knowledge of my legal rights, understanding any statement I make may be used against

Comparative Bullet Lead Analysis Some of the most credible evidence that is presented in criminal cases comes from the FBI crime laboratory in Quantico, Va. Part of their job is to test and analyze everything from ballistics to DNA for state and local prosecutors around the country. For years, the FBI believed that lead in bullets had unique chemical signatures, and that by breaking them down and analyzing them, it was possible to match bullets, not only to a single batch of ammunition, but to a single box of bullets. Expert testimony about bullet lead comparisons has been introduced into court without significant contest for nearly 40 years; however recent studies have exposed severe flaws in the basic theory, assumptions, and deductions of bullet lead experts. The FBI first used bullet lead analysis while investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy, trying to match pieces of bullets with those found in Lee Harvey Oswald's rifle. By the 1980's, the FBI was routinely using this analysis to link bullet fragments found at a crime scene with bullets found in the possession of a suspect.
