“Judge I Know What Crime Has Been Committed”: But What the HECK am I Doing Here?

Program Number
Program Date

This is about an innocent man caught in the grips of the broken American criminal justice system. He is a man tending to his garden when six FBI agents arrive and arrest him for a crime he did not commit. He has been misidentified, fingerprint evidence by the FBI supposedly matches his. He is taken to police headquarters and for 20 hours he is questioned with various lies told to him. Given his emotional state, he falsely confesses just so they will allow him to go home and eat. We go through the factors which are the cause of a wrongful prosecution when the man is the subject of a malevolent prosecutor willing to strike foul blows to secure an arrest and conviction.
