“I think it depends on the case. If the defendant is changing their story, then I think it would be important.”

“I think it can be useful information for the jury to have as long as the defense also gets to use the footage for cross-examination.”

“I think it’s fair to use as evidence. They should be able to use whatever video they have to resolve the case.”

“At that point, the suspect has already been told that anything they say can be used against them. There’s no reason they shouldn’t be able to use it.”

What the heck is an "Interrogation vide?" Is that some sort of strait-jacket or something?

I liked the part where they cut the werewolf's head off & a bunch of giant worms flew out.

Video-taping is a good CYA for the police department to use to protect themselves and confessions can be used as evidence--especially damaging to the alleged perpetrator when there is no DNA evidence. There have been cases where an innocent person has been interrogated for 8+ hours, are exhausted, badgered, and finally confess just to get the officers to stop. Read John Grisham's latest book "An Innocent Man."

Wait, wait, wait.

Did you just cite! a John Grisham novel to make a point?

Flap Doodle 10 years ago

jonas, the book cited is non-fiction. Grisham is branching out.

hmmmm, that's. . . . interesting. I didn't know he was capable of branching out.

"Vini Vide Vici" has to do with having a huge Caesar salad for lunch. I'm not quite sure what it has to do with being interrogated. But, I've never been really interrogated harshly. I think a transfer credit analyst is someone who analyses credit transfers and gets paid to do it, for some reason.

I wish there was a tiny picture of my head next to my opinion. (sigh)

I knew a guy, not me, who was being interrogated one time by some big French Legionnaires. He had a vision of some camels humping. It may have something to do with that. Maybe not.

I think the LJW just conjugates their Latin verbs wrong. Is the OTS writing in Latin? This could be a problem.

justsomewench 10 years ago

indeed...since the English language has worked out so well for them...

no wonder why they're interjecting so much video on the site. spelling is not required.

I really can't see any use for interrogation at all. Is that like torture? How about just asking the perp some pointed questions? Maybe he, or she, would cooperate. Especially if he, or she, knew it was all being recorded by a VIDEO camera.

Make them eat the 2111 peanut butter and film their facial expressions. That would be fun. Put it on You Tube.

tell them they're being represented by Marion. they'd accompany the confession with a puppet show and interpretive dance.

Well, I could say that it's just the result of a general down-sizing in the cereal business, but that's not the whole story. You ever see the movie "Sid & Nancy"? Crackle is pretty much the Sid Vicious of the ceral mascot world. We got tired of the lies, the booze, bailing him out of jail... There was that incident in Kyoto last month & we can't even tour in Italy anymore. "Sid", that's all that Toucan Sam ever calls him any more. "Hey, Sid, got any smack? And I don't mean Sugar Smacks!" and then he laughs that idiot bird-laugh of his.

Cap'n Crunch, now there is a real cereal mascot. That sea-hardened fella takes smack off of nobody -- real set of brass crunch-berries on that one.

Now, back to the topic -- I think video interrogations are good, as long as they remember to turn the cameras on only after the torture and beating.

Conantia frangere frangunt. Just dummy up.

I think this "Vide" they are referring to is the method of questioning where an old VHS tape is removed from the VCR and used to repeatedly strike the suspect in the head until it gets kinda sore. The tape is then returned to the VCR and resumes it's 8 hour recording of "Dr.Quinn, Medicine Woman".

"How about just asking the perp some pointed questions?"

That IS interrogation.

perhaps they can make the pictures a smidge bigger so we can actually see who made the comment.

UGH.. one day you cant even see them clearly, the next they are super tiny.
