"Homicide: Life on the Street: The Documentary (#5.11)" (1997)
J.H. Brodie: [In the section of the documentary entitled 'Random Thoughts'] The rights of the suspect. Give me your thoughts.
Det. Frank Pembleton: You are a citizen of a free nation. Having lived your life in a land of guaranteed civil liberties, you commit a crime of violence, whereupon you are jacked up, dragged down to Police Headquarters and deposited into a claustrophobic anteroom containing a table, two chairs and cold brick walls. Have a seat, please. And there you sit for a half hour or more before a homicide detective, a man who can in no way be mistaken for a friend, enters the room. He offers you a cigarette, not your brand, and begins an uninterrupted monologue which wanders back and forth, eventually coming to rest in a familiar place: you have the right to remain silent.
