Police Question Piers Morgan "Under Caution" in Phone Hacking Case

The police continue to inquire about his involvement in the British tabloid hacking scandal of 2011.

"Under caution," it seems, is how Brits say "warned of your rights."

Once police have grounds to suspect someone of an offence, the person must be cautioned before being asked any further questions. Unless this is done, the suspect's answers, or silence, cannot be used in court. The interview should take place at a police station unless delay in bringing a suspect there would be damaging. A person cautioned is told: "You do not have to say anything. But it may harm your defence if you do not mention, when questioned, something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence."

I like that British warning, including the warning that means, basically, "If you have a sound alibi or the like, but don't tell us now, we can mention this at your trial, to suggest you contrived it after-the-fact." We can't do that in the US.

Should you care? I don't know. Piers Morgan is boring to me even when he's being interrogated for criminal invasion of privacy.
