    "You have the right to remain silent, if you give up that right, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law ." The Miranda Rights rolled off Ryan Sharpie's tongue with the ease of constant practice. The teenager struggled against the cuffs but with his chest forced against the wall, all he succeeded in doing was aggravating the officers.
