District court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress his confession and other incriminating statements resulting in his conviction for bank robberies is affirmed where: 1) defendant's question was not a clear and unambiguous request for counsel under the circumstances; and 2) district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress his post-conviction statements where the magistrate judge made a credibility determination that despite defendant's failure to sign the waiver form, he was advised  of his Miranda rights and voluntarily agreed to waive them.
