Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
This Supreme Court decision on the rights of police detainees is debated pro and con from various points of view: whether or not this was a wrong decision in terms of the Bill of Rights; whether or not it is inappropriate with today's crime problem or encourages good police behavior; and whether or not it has hindered the fight against crime or, conversely, should be strengthened. Confessions have been a standard way of bringing criminals to justice. Police coercion to obtain these confessions, whether physical or psychological, is the problem. Although we see rights being read to detainees on TV crime shows, police have learned ways to get around this by having the prisoner waive her rights. To ensure detainees receive rightful treatment, in some states today there is the possibility of videotaping all confessions. Although the Supreme Court has thus far upheld this decision, it may eventually be changed. The text is broken up by sidebars with further information and photographs of people involved. This is a book in the "Point/Counterpoint" series. Notes, lists for further reading and Web sites, a list of related cases and their arguments, appendices on the application of the Bill of Rights, and an essay on legal research with a list of common legal citation forms are included. This book will be of special interest to youth thinking of a career in law.
