    Steve Is that it, then?

    On January 31, 1976, a man was murdered in a bar-room knife fight. The suspect was read his Miranda rights and later released. He disappeared, probably escaping to Mexico, and was never brought to trial for the murder.

    What is the significance of this event?

    Let's see here...Miranda was the guy that was killed in the knife fight, IIRC.

    Too damned many LEO's on this forum for that question to have stood much of a chance! :)

    Correct.
