72. You are interviewing the prime suspect in a serious case and know that his attorney is waiting to see him outside the interrogation room. The suspect has been advised of his rights, but has not chosen to invoke his right to an attorney. Under current law, you are not required to inform him that the attorney is present outside. Do you think this is a violation of the spirit of Miranda? Why or why not?REFERENCES: 346
73. You are a police officer trying to find a kidnap victim who has a health problem that requires medical treatment in the next six hours in order for him to survive. You have located an individual who has admitted to kidnapping the victim, but refuses to provide further information. Your partner says that you should leave the interview room and he will "encourage" the suspect to talk. You know that your partner is trying to protectyou from an allegation of violating the suspect’s rights when he uses force and threats to compel the information from the suspect. You also know that without this action it is likely you will not find the kidnap victim in time. What do you do? Does your course of action conform with the law? Why or why not?
