Second, although questioning must cease if the suspect asserts the right to counsel, if the defendant who has invoked reinitiates conversation-a concept the Court has defined broadly (Oregon v. Bradshaw, 1983)-the police may continue questioning (Edwards v. Arizona, 1981). Moreover, if the suspect merely asserts his right to remain silent (as opposed to the right to counsel), police probably do not need to wait for the defendant to reinitiate conversation, so long as there is a decent interval between interrogations and they rewarn him (Michigan v.

Bustamonte, 1973). If the search and seizure rules are violated, the typical remedy in the United States is exclusion of the evidence in the prosecution's casein-chief, with the result that the case against the defendant must often be dismissed (Mapp v. Ohio, 1961). However, illegally seized evidence need not be excluded if it was obtained in good faith reliance on a warrant, is used solely to impeach a defendant who has taken the stand, or would have been discovered through legal means in any event (Whitebread & Slobogin, 2000, Chapter 2).

The contrasting descriptions of these two systems are, of course, simplifications, if only because these models are really families of models, with lots of variations within each of these families. Still, if these vignettes do catch anything of the truth, they make clear that the question of the better model is unanswerable, because they do not serve the same (proximate) goals . They also make clear that the question of whether it would be wise to switch over from one system to the other is incredibly naive.
