Person Waives Miranda Rights

Question: What does it mean when a person "waives” their Miranda Rights?

Answer: That would be a person that decides to talk to the officers even after they have been told what their rights are. They say, “Yes, I understand my rights but I’m willing to talk to you.” They have given up their rights as have been explained to them, and they probably have given up their freedom in the process, too.
