if the suspects are held in the same room and allowed to communicate
with one another, the result will be the same. One will take the lighter
way out. IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ve seen many documentaries on how this works. If the 1st prisoner is remaining silent but knows that the 2nd prisoner is cooperating (a lie told to the prisoner to convince that prisoner to talk), then the 1st
prisoner will likely cooperate. There is a whole cooperation equation
that deals with the mindset of human beings. It is called Theory of Mind
Ability and Cooperation (Ridinger and McBride 2016). Remaining loyal to
each other is a highly unlikely event. When the stress level and
emotions are high, your minds ability to think rationally is thrown out
the door, even if they were in the same room.

conclusion, I think of it like this. My current situation I am in, if I
drove the getaway car from a robbery that turned into murder and we
were caught, I would immediately turn in the other prisoner to receive
immunity or lighten my prison time. Why should I pay the full price when
I can talk myself into a 50% discount or even more when the crimes are
not close in levels? There will not be an equal crime level and if there
is so, the other will turn in the other as that prisoner planned for
the crime. One prisoner had to have planned it, which is a bigger crime.
What if I committed the murder? I would turn my story around and make
it sound like the other prisoner planned for this event and hand over
evidence of that.
Do you see any possible solution to the prisoner’s dilemma?
prisonerĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s dilemma is a common legal strategy that uses a game-like
tactic to provide options during an investigation in order to get
confessions from two suspects. In this weekĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s discussion, the solution
to the prisonerĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s dilemma is useful for negotiating and weighing options
during a decision. The prisonerĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s dilemma is as stated in an article
from Simplicable, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Logically, the prisoner’s dilemma can be solved with a
strategy known as SuperrationalityĂ˘â‚¬Âť (Mar,2013). Superrationality speaks
to the idea that a person can look outside what would be best for
themselves and instead consider whatĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s the best option for the long-term
or the greater good.
What if the suspects are not held in separate jail cells: that is, what if they are allowed to communicate with each other?
the two suspects are not held in separate jail cells and they are able
to speak freely with each other then they are able to illuminate any
sort of Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“dilemmaĂ˘â‚¬Âť. The two suspects would be able to decide the best
situation and outcome for themselves and the greater good for the
future. In essence, they could both agree not to admit to anything, and
both be set free or have both have a very light sentence.
