    Miranda requires that the government (police) advise anyone
    that is in custody (not free to turn around and walk away)
    of their Constitutional Rights to not answer questions and
    to have an attorney present during questioning if they wish
    (among other minor details.)

    The cop does not have to convince the subject that he/she is
    a suspect. It really is only a procedure, prescribed by
    law, that has to be gotten out of the way.

    If the subject was provided the Miranda rights and waived
    these rights, he/she is probably not going to get the
    statements suppressed. The subject should be allowed to
    file this motion, but it will likely be overruled.
