If you are taken into custody for a criminal offense and ask for clarification of your rights and the implications of refusing a breathilizer, signing documents admitting guilt, and that you need to understand what is being asked of you, either by a lawyer or the arresting officer, and they refuse to tell you or let you find legal council of some form, ... if you ask 'why am i not allowed' is that policemen allowed to say 'because i say so' and and and you tell him 'that is not an adequate explanation', to which responds 'yes it is', if you then ask 'what law gives him that authority' and he keeps saying ' because ' or ' because i say so ' is that a failure to warn of miranda rights or mistreatment in some way, like failure to uphold his duty by not allowing me my constiturional rights?
