Law Student or 17 Year-Old Boy

In reading my CrimPro I came across the case of Wong Sun v. United States. Consider the following excerpt:
  • At all events no evidentiary consequences turn upon that question. For Wong Sun's unsigned confession was not the fruit of that arrest, and was therefore properly admitted at trial. On the evidence that Wong Sun had been released on his own recognizance after a lawful arraignment, and had returned voluntarily several days later to make the statement, we hold that the connection between the arrest and the statement had "become so attenuated as to dissipate the taint."

How am I supposed to concentrate when Justice Brennan is discussing the dissipation of the taint? Ish.

Peace -

You think that's bad? I felt like a 12-year-old boy in class the other night when the prof kept talking about doing pat down searches: "How would you feel if you reached into the guys pocket and you felt a hard, three-inch weapon?"

My thoughts: Ifs it's hard and only three inches, then it can't be that dangerous.

It wasn't too noticeable when I kept giggling, was it?
