Miranda's (Yes THAT Miranda) collision course with irony
Miranda was paroled in 1972. After his release, he started selling autographed Miranda Warning cards for $1.50. .... Miranda spent most of his time in poorly kept bars and cheap hotels in rough sections of Phoenix. Miranda, then working as a delivery driver, participated in a card game at La Amapola Bar. On January 31, 1976, a violent fight broke out and Miranda received a lethal wound from a knife; he was pronounced dead on arrival at Good Samaritan Hospital. He was 34 years old. A suspect was arrested, but he chose to exercise his right to remain silent after being read his Miranda rights
. The suspect was released and supposedly fled to Mexico. The Miranda murder case was closed without ever apprehending the murderer.

Great example of unintended consequences. I'll bet Miranda didn't expect such a thing to turn around and bite him. Irony, indeed.

I really doubt that it much mattered to Miranda, at that point, what happened to the suspect one way or the other. And keep in mind that the Miranda decision didn't confer any rights upon a suspect. It just required the arresting officer to inform and confirm understanding of the rights already protected by the Constitution. Before the Miranda decision, there was, of course, a Constitutional right against self-incrimination.

That has to be the definition of "ironic" .
However, he didn't get away due to the Miranda Rights, but due to Judges setting low bonds for murder.
