Here’s a puzzler. If a police officer says “What’s up?” to you, should it be considered the beginning of an interrogation, and should you be read your rights?
I can see both sides. I think it could mean “What’s up with you?” or “What’s up in this spot where we stand?” What do you guys think? I think it all depends on context, and only the people on the scene would ever know which “what’s up” was intended by the officer.
either way, the image of lawyers saying “What’s up?” to judges as the opening statement in court is a funny one.
