An law school professor and former criminal defense attorney tells you why you should never agree to be interviewed by the police. 031408_DontTalktoPolice.wmv
This is a long (but very good) 48 minute video from a criminal defense attorney and an ex-police officer talking about how police interrogations work and the methods used in them to get a confession.
For those of you out there writing cops, criminals, innocents, or verbal interrogations of any kind, I highly recommend taking an hour and watching this video. You’ll learn a lot and you’ll get some really solid information on why some techniques work the way they do.
You’ll obviously get a lot of differing opinions on the subject, but this one is very informative and I recommend that everyone (but authors especially) watch it.
The more you know.
Brilliant writer’s reference and just good advice if you find yourself helping police with enquiries…
