Editorial Reviews

Why would four innocent men confess to the rape and murder in 1997 of a woman in Norfolk, Virginia? The case raises disturbing questions about the actions of the police and prosecutors, who relied on often contradictory confessions for their convictions, and disregarded DNA evidence that pointed to a lone assailant who would later confess to the crime himself while serving prison time for another rape.

This is the startling account of four men dubbed the "Norfolk Four" who falsely confessed to the brutal rape and murder of a young woman in Virginia in the 1990s. It is an excellent examination not only of the facts of the case but of the psychological dynamics of false confessions. The abuse of power exhibited by the police interrogator and the utter lack of common sense by others in the criminal justice system will leave you shaking your head. I highly recommend it.

I teach Criminal Justice following decades of practice, so I am familiar with interrogation and the concept of false confession. However, the responsibility for this injustice also falls on defense attorneys who fail to take these tapes and use them to their advantage. The entire American Criminal Justice system is misunderstood because we see it from the perspective of entertainment. What we see on T.V. and movies exists to entertain and keep our attention so they can sell us feminine hygiene spray! This tape is an example of the Real World and in that regard it could be used as a teaching aid or learning experience.

I watched this program on their website but have watched it numerous times. As such, when I found a used copy on Amazon ordered it.

The show is about four falsely convicted Navy sailors who were convicted through false convictions in spite of the fact the DNA showed that somebody completely unknown to them committed the crime. They were convicted after having been questioned over many hours of questioning until; they were completely exhausted.
