One thought on “RM39 – How Coerced Testimonies Are Like A School Bully”
In the case of Mr. Kochevar, I’m glad the court ruled how it did. I hope this would be applied to all those accused of sex offenses.
Those officers knew they were duping a naive young man by using their position of friendship with the boy’s father. That was dead wrong. At no time did they ever tell him he was under criminal investigation for a sexual offense; a registerable sexual offense. Police are scum. They are NOT your friend. They are NOT there to help you. Forget what mamma and daddy told you growing up. The police of today, by far and large, are NOT your friends. Period!
