Racial Differences in Miranda Waiver

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Suspect race may influence trust in police and consequently influence a suspects’ tendency to waive Miranda rights. The present study investigated racial differences in trust in police and Miranda waiver rates using a mock crime paradigm. Results show that Black participants are less trusting of police than White participants and also less likely to waive their Miranda rights than White participants. Results imply that Black suspects’ lack of trust in police leads them to retain their Miranda rights to protect themselves from a coercive interrogation. Further research is needed to determine the effects of this racial difference on confession rates.
