What do you think about the case of the 17 year old who is fighting the removal of a bullet from his forehead that may implicate him in a murder? Do you think that he should be able to fight this or do you think the police have every right to force him to have it remove since it is evidencein a murder case?

Well this is a far stretch of the law, but in the U.S., you can't force one to testify against themselves and you can't force someone to testify against their spouse. So from what you are saying, this individual is in possession of a bullet although it is in his head, and he refuses to give it to the police to protect himself. Well that is almost the same as making sure he doesn't testify against himself.
