Law enforcement agents can, and do, question citizens suspected of committing a crime, but they cannot conduct an interrogation before ensuring that the suspect is protected against self-incrimination. Courts have prohibited physically coercive techniques when questioning suspects (Brown v. Mississippi). The privilege against self-incrimination does not prevent officers from using psychologically coercive techniques to elicit confessions as long as the suspect is informed of his or her rights prior to custodial interrogation (Miranda v. Arizona).
Discussion Topic: The Miranda Decision
Consider each of the rights statements that make up the Miranda decision. Are there any “rights” that you would add to, or remove from, the Miranda rights? If so, what would they be? Use research to substantiate your thoughts and cite your sources using APA formatting.
