in the Reids

I was looking through a textbook  (Psychology of Interrogations and Confessions) and came across this tidbit:

There is considerable evidence that coercive and manipulative interrogation techniques, such as those recommended by [the Reid Technique] , often cause resentment and bitterness among offenders, which may last over many years (Gudjonsson & Bownes, 1992; Gudjonsson&Petursson, 1991; Gudjonsson&Sigurdsson, 1999). Suspects do resent being tricked, deceived and coerced by the police… [p.35]

Ya don’t say.

I’m still pissed about an interrogation in the 1980s wherein the LEO in question lied repeatedly, then when challenged on it bragged about his ability to legally lie during the interrogation.  He said things to me that would get a non-badged individual punched in the f___ing throat in any other context.
