·         Topic: Interrogation
This week’s discussion group will continue the discussion of interrogation.  You do not need to make it to Tuesday’s presentation to attend.  We can talk about interrogation of adults as well as juveniles – what cops do, what they should and should not do, how far we would be willing to let an interrogation go if lives are at stake, what protections and remedies are available, etc.  Any and all additions to the discussion are good – I will try to bring some video clips of interrogations, please feel free to introduce whatever you would like as well!
