Why Eye Witnesses Suck

January 3rd, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized


I was talking about the fire from the other night and someone asked which store was affected and I said the maternity clothes store. But when I uploaded the pictures, pictures I took, so not only was I looking right at the store, I was studying it to pick the shot I wanted, I saw that it was not the maternity store but the furniture/housewares store.

When I finished my last book about unsolved murder I decided that no one should be able to be convicted of murder without physical evidence (or an untainted confession, perhaps).  People simply do not make trustworthy witnesses.

I love that message in the window, The End of History, but what does it mean? A black hole is going to suck up our past? Oh wait, that’s the title of a book, right?

Some friends are getting kittens tomorrow and I’m going to takes pictures of owners and kittens meeting.  HEAVEN.

    You are SO right about eye witnesses! There have been studies and everything, showing how unreliable they are. I studied some criminal law during my masters degree and came to the same conclusion you did. I don’t know why it’s not more widely talked about.
