Why is ignorance of the law not an excuse but ignorance of your rights is?
I ask this question because you can be arrested whether you knew you were breaking a law or not, but if the police fail to Mirandize you, then you can be set free. First of all, does anyone not know they have a right to remain silent and to an attorney? And secondly, if they do not, how is that the police's fault? How is ignorance of the law not an excuse that can free you but ignorance of your rights is?
Justice is meant to be about balance and not politics. However, in today's America justice is used more as a fund raiser for a dead government, rather than to protect and serve. As a result ignorance of the law works in favour of the bill collectors. I can remember a time when the cops would educate you of a law with a warning but no more.
