Talking to the Police
Officer Officer George Bruch of the Virginia Beach Police Department gives this very engaging lecture to law students about how police officers interview suspects. He has interrogated over 1000 suspects, and he discusses how easy it is to get a confession. The techniques he uses are quite clever. The basic message is that it rarely, if ever, helps a defendant to talk to the police.
Please note that Parts I, II, and IIII below are labeled parts 4, 5, and 6 on YouTube, as Officer Bruch was part of a panel.
Part III is below the fold.
