She was going to sell her house but had a change of heart at the last minute.

3 Yusef Salaam on The Rock Newman Show

24 feb. 2017

Surviving the relentless determination to prove his innocence while persevering a campaign for his execution by a man that would become the Most Powerful Man in the World (Donald Trump). Motivational Speaker Yusef Abdus Salaam sits with us to reveal how little the masses actually know about the case of The Central Park Five! How deep does the Rabbit Hole of Corruption go in the case of The Central Park Five?

Join us for this episode of The Rock Newman Show.

Mr. Yusef Salaam mentions “The Reid Technique” used by police departments.

The Reid technique’s nine steps of interrogation are:

1. Direct confrontation. Advise the suspect that the evidence has led the police to the individual as a suspect. Offer the person an early opportunity to explain why the offense took place.

2. Try to shift the blame away from the suspect to some other person or set of circumstances that prompted the suspect to commit the crime. That is, develop themes containing reasons that will psychologically justify or excuse the crime. Themes may be developed or changed to find one to which the accused is most responsive.

3. Try to minimize the frequency of suspect denials.

4. At this point, the accused will often give a reason why he or she did not or could not commit the crime. Try to use this to move towards the acknowledgement of what they did.

5. Reinforce sincerity to ensure that the suspect is receptive.

6. The suspect will become quieter and listen. Move the theme discussion towards offering alternatives. If the suspect cries at this point, infer guilt.

7. Pose the “alternative question”, giving two choices for what happened; one more socially acceptable than the other. The suspect is expected to choose the easier option but whichever alternative the suspect chooses, guilt is admitted. As stated above, there is always a third option which is to maintain that they did not commit the crime.

8. Lead the suspect to repeat the admission of guilt in front of witnesses and develop corroborating information to establish the validity of the confession.

9. Document the suspect’s admission or confession and have him or her prepare a recorded statement (audio, video or written).

The Bridge (Documentary) directed and produced by Eric Steel.
 
“The Bridge is a 2006 British-American documentary film by Eric Steel spanning one year of filming at the famed Golden Gate Bridge which crosses the Golden Gate entrance to San Francisco Bay, connecting the city of San Francisco, California to the Marin Headlands of Marin County, in 2004.
