Question description

“Imagine that you are an absolutely unscrupulous district attorney, willing to do anything—including convicting an innocent person – in order to get a conviction in a particularly notorious criminal case. (i.e., you don’t much care who is convicted – guilty or innocent – so long as you get a conviction of someone). You have two witnesses to the crime – a murder during the robbery of an all-night diner – but neither is very confident of being able to identify the killer. What could you do to influence those witnesses so that they will not only identify someone as the killer, but also testify confidently (you aren’t concerned about whether they testify accurately) that person is the killer and that the murder was a particularly brutal one.” (Ch 16, p. 309)
