Your Miranda Rights, Bunk

This is a nearly word for word reenactment of the infamous Miranda Rights segment of David Simon's true crime novel "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets." In the book, it is Simon's stream-of conscious-prose explaining how homicide detectives finesse suspects into giving up their right to an attorney.

The television show Homicide: Life on the Street cleverly has detectives being filmed for a documentary. The actors use Simon's prose as dialogue. An unfilmable book passage becomes a acting showcase.
