<p>Anyone see <a href="http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/the-confessions/" target="_blank">this</a>? (Full program available at link.) Good lord. Makes you question the justice system to the core.</p>

<p>I think the most maddening thing about it was the interrogating officers telling the suspects that they had failed their polygraphs when they had not. A mere Mundane can go to jail for lying to the police but not the other way around. Nice.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>All of their confessions were coerced. They also found none of their DNA at the crime scene and had a full confession from the real DNA match who stated unequivocally that he acted alone. They still went to jail. F*cking bullsh*t. The interrogator who coerced all of the confessions is now in jail himself for abuse of the justice system and (I think) extortion. Once again, nice.</p>
<p>Just read this quote and found it appropriate for this thread (and so much more):</p>

<p><em>“History's most important lesson is that it has not been possible to make coercion compatible with truth.”</em></p>
