Confessions during interogation should not be considered evidence.

Only confessions given freely in the courtroom should be valid.

I wonder what the chances are that someone "important to the community" or someone related to such a person actually committed the crime...

Either that or someone who was "tough on crime" was up for reelection when the crime was committed...

If faced with prolonged interrogation... My head is so full of memes I'd write something that looked like a 4chan thread had sex with an abovetopsecret thread while descirbing the points at which I was told the details they wanted me to confess. At least the prosecution in Kafka's Trial never fed the accused elements to build a false confession around.

that's not shoddy police work. that's "making it stick".

our system of prosecution is all about making a charge stick to someone, whether or not they committed the crime in question.

because you know they did <i>something</i>. for example they may have been black.
