These abuses are largely the status quo; even in other practices.
2 February 2021 | by planenutsSee all my reviews

Framing, badgering, pigeonholing, confirmation bias, railroading; is largely the status quo; not just by police, prosecutors and courts; but also with politics, church, schools, homeowners associations and many other powermad abusive authorities.

Interrogators ask questions but often don't give a chance for an honest answer. Instead they interrupt and force agendas and falsify memories.

It's not just the suspect(s) that are pigeonholed and given false memories; it's also supposed witnesses and supposed victims. Sometimes because of this type of bullying; supposedly witnesses and supposed victims are sometimes bullied and coached into giving false statements and/or having false memories.

Exonerating evidence is often obfuscated, not permitted and/or destroyed.

During the Salem witch hunt, almost everybody confessed and many falsely implicated others.
