What two (2) elements must be present for Miranda Warnings to be required? Explain each element.
Please watch the below-listed Youtube video and respond with your comments concerning the interrogation and resulting confession. For example, do you think the investigator coerced the suspect in any way? Do you think the investigator acted unfairly or unethically to the suspect? What in particular did you notice about the interrogation/confession? This video is a confession made by a serial rapist and killer. The suspect, Russell Williams, was the Commander of the Canadian Forces’ largest military base in Canada. While I realize Canada does not have “Miranda Warnings” per se, they do advise suspects of their rights under Canadian law. This case is extremely interesting from several perspectives: confession law, non-verbal communication, interview and interrogation skills.
