    The power of the interrogation! The same thing is done to adult suspects, though with more persistence. Then we send those suspects to jail for their confessions.

    We not only send people to jail because of their confessions, they can be sent to jail because of mere suspicions.

    My husband was given a “deal”: If you pass a polygraph test, we will charge you with possession instead of receipt of child porn. Receipt carries a 5-year mandatory minimum sentence while possession has no mandatory minimum, so he bit. The point of the polygraph was to find out if he had ever molested children. Naturally, in such a friendly environment (the ICE agent’s office) and with so little riding on the results (the next several years with his children, his life), he failed. Not because he lied but because that’s the way polygraphs work. So, because the poly gave them reason to think maybe he committed a crime for which they have no evidence, he is facing a sentence that even some actual proven and convicted molesters don’t face. For looking at pictures.

    With some pushback from his attorney, they offered another what-a-deal: They will charge him with possession if he agrees to a 4-year prison term. Imagine our gratitude.

    If anyone can tell me if the federal judge has any latitude at his sentencing–or is the judge bound to the agreement with ICE–I would appreciate it.

    Kimmel’s skit was hilarious, btw.

    That was actually a (funny as hell) pretty good illustration of the ‘Reid Technique’ for interrogations in action. Google it sometime – and then DON’T TALK TO ANY COP EVER!!

    This is very funny. I have to admit though, I kind of feel sorry for that kid. But still, hard not to laugh looking at that Truth Fairy. Hilarious.

    “…Fake lie detector…” Ha! redundant

    This would have been much, much funnier if they had used an adult.

    #4, according to the YouTube comments, it was “go f*ck yourself” … which is probably why Kimmel lost it …..

    1) Funny as hell

    2) Potentially fucked up this kids head.

    3) But then what doesn’t have that potential. Besides unconditional love, I mean.
