When the Miranda decision was announced, police feared it would inhibit their effectiveness in gaining the cooperation of suspects. This fear has not been borne out; 80 % of suspects waive their Miranda rights, and police have an extensive repertoire of ploys to cause suspects to confess. These include flattery and ingratiation, veiled threats, and deception.

Keywords:   coercion, false confessions, invocation of rights, police interrogation tactics, police interrogation training, waiver of rights
