My understanding of the relevant laws is clearly lacking, but the
common theme of these border detentions is that apparently one is
being held for questioning, yet is not detained/arrested. In that
case, the threats to cooperate or be arrested otherwise do not make
any sense, since the border agents have no power to arrest you in
present situation anyway - is that correct? I.e., Miranda was just
passing through UK, so what prevented him from simply staring blankly
at the agents for 9 hours? It's certainly less exhausting than
answering silly questions of some failures equipped with a crash
course on basic interrogation techniques?
