More and more innocent people are being released from prison after spending decades in prison for a crime they did not commit. Why??? One reason is the “Reid form of Interrogation.” Detectives will interrogate a person to get THEIR chosen end result. The detective is later supposed to investigate the interrogation to see if it holds any merit with collecting evidence and DNA evidence. Because it is sooo easy to get a confession with this form of interrogation, evidence is needed to back it up.
Career hungry detectives and prosecutors manipulate the system to close a case and receive brownie points! Wow!!! There you have it; innocent people confess to a crime they did not commit and the legal system all the way up NEVER investigate for substantial evidence.
For profit private county jails and prisons PROFIT by filling up beds. The more arrests and convictions, the happier the shareholders.
Years and years go by for an innocent person who is convicted. The appeal system is long and it feels like forever. Families suffer while their family member is incarcerated. Children go without a parent and families experience so much hardship.
Harold Scism, of Hernando County, FL, is going through the appeals system at the moment seeking Habeas Corpus Relief. The newspapers printed an uncorroborated story. The family and those that know Mr. Scism read the lies printed. There is no evidence nor DNA evidence in this case. A corrupt tape was made by Detective Banks that he NEVER performed follow-up work on to corroborate the tape. The media never performed investigative work. In the end, an innocent man was convicted of a crime that NEVER occurred. Mr. Scism’s family and friends are upset. His daughter is upset and does not have her father in her life. Hardship and pain is the end result, and I question, why??? Why me and my family? The same as others who are experiencing the same pain and misery. Why?
The interrogation system needs to end because of the fraudulent actions of our legal system. It is wrong to set-up innocent people for incarceration and profit. Representative Richard Nugent (R) was sheriff at the time.
