A crisis counselor is sent by the Catholic Church to a small Chilean beach town where disgraced Priests and nuns, suspected of crimes ranging from child abuse to baby-snatching from unwed mothers, live secluded, after an incident occurs.
Would you confess to a crime you did not commit? Each year innumerable American suspects do, and experts say that trained interrogators can get anybody to confess to anything. Defense attorney Jane Fisher-Byrialsen is determined to put an end to interrogation techniques that all too often pressure innocent people into false confessions.
Japan has a 99% confession rate. EU countries and Australia have a much higher confession rate than the US.
In fact one can cherry pick for a given bunch of anecdotes but in fact thanks to the US Bill of Rights, especially the fourth and Fifth Amendment, which are very strong like the First and Second are as well, the US has less abuse of interrogation than the vast majority of developed democracies. If the ACLU were set loose on Japan, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, Australia applying US law and practices, it would tear up and excluded 90% of confessions.
Highlighting problems, and the rare abuse of rights is worthy effort. Implying they are the rule is disinformation and falsehood.
