Exclusionary Rule While Charles McFarland was incarcerated in a state prison, two officers questioned him about his connection to a handgun that had been used to shoot two other officers. McFarland was advised of his rights but was not asked whether he was willing to waive those rights. Instead, to induce McFarland to speak, the officers deceived him into believing that “[n]obody is going to give you charges.” McFarland made incriminating admissions and was indicted for possessing a handgun as a convicted felon. Should McFarland’s statements be suppressed—that is, not be treated as admissible evidence at trial—because he was not asked whether he was willing to waive his rights prior to making his self-incriminating statements? Why or why not? [United States v. McFarland, 424 F.Supp.2d 427 (N.D.N.Y. 2006)]
