Would that be before or after we find out if he was tortured until he confessed, possibly to a crime he didn't commit? 

 

It's amazing what people will cop to when you have a positive lead on the left nut and negative lead on the right one.

 

In a proper investigation ALL leads should be followed up.....

I am constantly amazed at how police are able to elicit a confession from 'suspects'.  Is there a secret interrogation method they use?

Confession and pleading guilty normally results in the final sentence being significantly reduced (halved, I think).

 

I suspect that for this reason some people confess and plead guilty even when they did not actually commit the crime at all.

 

The police like this system as it presumably results in higher conviction rates than might otherwise be obtained. It also requires less evidence and less work.

Sure, they always are, fully investigated by the world's superior investigative police force the RTP. 

(Unfortunately there isn't a sarcasm button on TVF)
