Case Study 3: Confessions and Admissions after a Request for a Lawyer

A suspect is apprehended in a large-chain grocery store by the security guard. The suspect is placed in handcuffs and taken to the manager’s office. The police are called and advised of the situation. Officer Jones arrives at the store approximately 12 minutes later. Officer Jones takes a statement from the security guard and views the in-store camera film of the shop lifting incident. Officer Jones places the suspect under arrest, reads the suspect the Miranda warnings, and asks the suspect if he would like to make a statement. The suspect replies, “No, I would like a lawyer”. The suspect is then transported to the local jail and booked. Five (5) hours later, the suspect is interviewed by a detective who again reads him the Miranda warning. The detective then asks the suspect if he would like to talk. The suspect says, “Yes”. He eventually confesses to the crime.

  2. Discuss how the Edwards Rule is related to this situation.

Reaction Paper

Question description



Read all of this very carefully before you begin

your paper!



Students will also be required to write

a short

reaction paper

(typically 5


) critically evaluating one of the

“Contemporary Debates”

(CD) modules

assigned for a given

class (NOTE: Each


is a “debate” consisting of TWO articles; thus, your paper must critically evaluate BOTH sides of the



, BOTH articles).

These CD modules appear on D2L Brightspace and correspond to particular topics indicated in the

Schedule of Readings at the

end of this syllabus.

Each paper should provide a critical evaluation of the authors’ thesis, main arguments and evidence. You should approach the

arguments and evidence presented in these


very skeptically and you should be willing to challenge

any arguments,

evidence, or assumptions that you believe are flawed, inadequate, or not relevant. On the other hand, I expect students to

maintain a dignified, moderate, and scholarly tone in their writing, even when criticizing or challenging the ideas of

the author

do NOT approach this assignment as an invitation to engage in partisan diatribes or personal attacks on political figures,

parties, interest groups


or celebrities. I expect students to make a genuine effort to try and understand the point of

view of

authors with whom they disagree. You will not be able to effectively critique an idea until you are able to understand why

someone else would agree with that idea. An important part of this exercise is to encourage you to, as the saying goes, “wal

k a

mile in someone else’s shoes.”

There is no single format, template, or approach that is preferred

you have a great deal of discretion in how you approach

your critical analysis and argument. However, to give you an idea of what has worked in the pa

st for many students, I would

suggest you consider one of the following general approaches to developing a




., main argument)



You may decide that one article was clearly more persuasive than the other, so your thesis (typically articulated in t


introductory paragraph) will briefly indicate which article was more convincing and why;


You may decide that both articles contained central truths that should not be ignored, such that a combination or

synthesis of the two theories or views is the bes

t way to think about the issue or problem the authors have analyzed;



You may conclude that neither article has correctly or adequately addressed the problem they describe, in which case

you should explain how they fall short and describe what you belie

ve is a better way to approach the topic described

in the chapter.

Remember that you are every bit as smart and capable as the people who wrote these articles and it is very likely that you wi


find many flawed approaches, obvious oversights, or mistaken assumptions in these articles. Please assert your own voice and


confident, though not arrogant, in expressing your original ideas. Writing in the

first person


active voice

are encouraged

for your writing in this course.

General guidelines for your reaction papers:

Papers must be typed, double

spaced, in 12

point Times New Roman font with

the default margins (1” on top and bottom; 1.25” on left and right). Your paper must have a


that provides the reader with

a clear indication of your thesis


, what

argument will you be making in the paper

? (in

other words,

titles like


Paper #1”

or “Abortion” are


acceptable title


). An “A” paper will be well

written and well


ganized, will have a clear,


provoking thesis (


, argument, main point), will support that thesis through a critical evaluation and synthesis of the

readings, and will have a clear conclusion that summarizes the main arguments in support of the t

hesis, and perhaps even

raises an important question for future consideration.

PAPER TOPIC: How were you politically socialized? What factors influenced your political thinking? What impact has your political socialization had on your opinions?

Answer the following questions in your essay. Remember these answers are strictly confidential. This is an exercise or inventory to help you understand what influences your political views and socialization.

  • How did you learn about government growing up?
  • Did your family discuss politics? Were you encouraged or discouraged to participate in politics?
  • What agents of socialization influenced your political socialization?
  • How did the area of the country or the world you’re from help determine your political socialization? Did your experience with where you are from influence how you approach political issues and events?
  • Has college or high school made an impact on your political socialization?
  • Does media influence your thinking about politics?
  • Do your peers or friends influence your political thinking?
  • What is the first political event you can remember? Did living through or experiencing a political even influence your political socialization?
  • What influenced and how your political socialization—your parents, your religion, your peers, your school, the media, political events?
  • If you’re 18 or older and a citizen, are your registered to vote and have you voted before? Why or why not?
  • Based upon your political socialization, what was your reaction to a result of the recent November general election that reflects your political socialization and interests (giving specific examples and reaction)? Support your reaction by including a newspaper article referencing the election results that you choose to react to. It might be an article that deals with the election of a specific party or shift in party power in Congress, or it might deal with an issue that was prominently discussed in the election (such as immigration, health care, abortion, etc. Do an Internet research for the documentation supporting or enhancing your reaction and refer to the article by name, publication, author, date of publication. Use quotes or paraphrase information from the article and give a citation to the article in your paper (example: If you’ve been following the election campaign of Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, the first African-American woman to make a serious bid to become governor of a state in the deep South, you could talk about her challenge to the apparent election results that indicated the Republican had won the election. Be CERTAIN to cite the author, title of the article, publication, and publication date and give the URL of the article.

Please feel free to be creative. However, the focus MUST be on leadership. Be sure to provide a narrative explanation that shows how the developed theory can close the “gap” identified in the first part of the project (THE FIRST PROJECT IS ATTACHED BELOW). Additionally explain how it incorporates system thinking. Remember your theory can be based on those that we have learned about or your own. There is no wrong theory. What matters is the explanation of how it addresses the gap and uses system thinking. While this doesn’t have to be addressed now, keep in mind the last part of the project will involve presenting a methodology that tests the developed theory empirically. .

Submit your Scholar-Practitioner Project Assignment by Day 7.

Support your Project with specific references to all resources and current literature used in its preparation. You are to provide a reference list for all resources
