The Rahami Interrogation: An Update

Rahami has been in custody (and in the hospital in Newark) for about two days at this point. The public record reveals very little about the interrogation process thusfar. What we do know is that federal charges are now pending both in Manhattan and in New Jersey, and that it appears that he will first face those New York charges. At some point when his medical situation permits, that is, he'll be moved to New York and the prosecution will begin to unfold.

Interrogating Ahmad Khan Rahami

Police in New Jersey have located and arrested Ahmad Khan Rahami, the prime suspect in the Chelsea and New Jersey bombings. Rahami fired on the officers who found him, striking two of them and then being shot himself (in the shoulder, possibly). He is now in custody and receiving medical care at a hospital in Newark. And now officials face an important—and potentially quite controversial—set of decisions regarding how to go about interrogating Rahami.
