Why does anyone confess to the police? While a plea bargain in court might lower your punishment, confessing to police can only hurt you. Yet people do it all the time.

0:15 - #1: They pretend that they're your ally.
1:00 - #2: The positive confrontation.
3:44 - #3: Interrogators shut down denials immediately.
4:36 - #4: They give you a way out with minimization.

  • My biggest objection to the police in these situations is none of them ever seem concerned with whether the suspect is innocent. None of their training seems concerned with this horrific outcome, they just don’t seem to care. And yet, cops sit there and go, “gee, I don’t know why the general public doesn’t appreciate us or hold us in high regard?!” Its similar to the incredulity lawyers have when people think lawyers on both sides of the fence are uninterested in real justice, making sure the right people get the right justice. Again, its as if to them, it’s irrelevant. DA’s offices seem similarly unconcerned about imprisoning an innocent person. It’s as if for them, a confession or a conviction is a notch in their belt, “a win.” As simply one example, most judges and DA’s will fight tooth and nail against possible DNA evidence that might clear a person that is currently in jail. You would think they would be VERY concerned that an innocent person might be in jail, has spent years in jail - especially in cases where the person in jail has maintained their innocence from the very beginning. .

  • If you're innocent, invoke your fifth amendment every time they ask you a question. Literally every time and ask for a lawyer. Don't say a single word beside invoking the fifth amendment and asking for a lawyer. They can frame you within seconds and ruin your life.

  • In my country if you are from lower class they will beat the sht out of you until you are willing to commit a crime that you didnt do. Dont want to talk? They beat you more. Ask for a lawyer? They appoint "their" lawyer that only push you to just commit. No they wont investigate more about the case, they rather make a fairytale than to reinvestigate the case with no csh behind

  • DISGUSTING! REVOLTING! I understand that the interrogators need some leeway to catch the guilty but not so much that it entraps the innocent. If you can train them well enough to lie then train them well enough to understand when someone is genuinely confused by the fake evidence that you're presenting.

    Hamza CharaneHamza CharaneDag siden
  • In general my advice is usually NO COMMENT at the initial interview stage as will most solicitors..the reason being at the initial interview stage the police are only bound to give you what’s known as INITIAL DISCLOSURE. This is only required to provide you with sufficient knowledge to reasonably explain why and what the charge you’re potentially facing. This means they have no obligation to provide all evidence they posses and will often ask questions they know the answers too in an attempt to trip you up. Therefore in general (especially if guilty) provide no comment interview until the police charge you, at which point you will receive FULL DISCLOSURE and can provide a more full defence to the allegations. That being said in a situation where you’re completely innocent and just happen to be there there is nothing wrong with providing a statement explaining your version of events, it’s often helpful to provide your defence at the earliest opportunity(if it’s one you’re going to stick to) as although as everyone likes to explain you have the right to remain silent, and while this can’t infer guilt negative inferences can be made.

  • Certainly the fear of the unknown outcome is an issue - here's a cop telling you they know you're guilty - so you want the best deal you can get, but I think the fear of *regret* is another. The fear inside telling us, "Man, they're telling you they'll go easy on you if you 'help them out,' if you don't, and they give you 20 years in the electric chair, you're gonna spend the whole time regretting not cooperating, because who knows, maybe they would have let you go instead?" This fear of regret must be ignored. If they have the goods, they'll convict you. Even if they don't have the goods, they might convict you. It is a crapshoot, regardless of your guilt/innocence. But if you confess, you are 100% convicted. No possibility for a new trial, appeal on any grounds, nothing, you are F'd.

  • While watching police murdere Unarmed black men on video camera passes me off ... its a whole mother level of fury when I see cops talking to the victims of a murder. The victim of a murder isn't the dead person they are dead they are not suffering . The victim of the murder are the loved ones who survive them who are greiving and trying to wrap there heads around the reality that their parent spouse child sibling friend or neighbor is dead every time I watch a documentary or a fictional TV show where I see a cop talking to someone before bodies buried or at a funeral I want to reach into the TV wallet so I can murder his family in front of him and then take him to a cabin in the woods I'm leaving there and starve to death while he has to listen to a recording on Loop of me asking him why he killed his family

Never let these criminals trick you into saying something. Even if they keep you in that little white room for 4 hours. SAY NOTHING. You have the right to remain silent if you are detained. If not. Ask to leave. Never speak without an attorney present!

  • Me, a foreigner to the States with fairly good English knowledge, walked up to an officer once who stood by my drive away car and asked him straight away for directions. We had a quick chat and then he asked me if I was foreign. I presumed it was because of my accent but he said he noticed because I wasn't afraid of him. Now that was an eye opener to American society.

  • I just learned that there are many US states where it is not a requirement to record police interviews. That blows my mind. I'm an ex cop in Australia and every interview was audio recorded and many video recorded as well. Little chance of coercion, which is great. And very strict rules on photo boards as well. If the suspect was, say, a white man with red hair, several other photos on the photo board also need to be white men with red hair, or as close as possible. You cannot have only one white man with red hair on the photoboard because that is the one the witness will pick, whether it's the right person or not. And that identification is usually video recorded as well. Blows my mind this is not standard procedure everywhere.
