Police use of Trickery and Deceit in Interrogation of Detained Suspects...it Must End Now if Justice is to be Done

Program Number
Program Date

It is early in the practice of law that one becomes familiar with Justice Sutherland’s words in Berger v. United States: 293, US 78, 88 (1935). Changing the tense somewhat, prosecutors and law enforcement officials generally could be counted, he opined as “ministers of justice”, not striking foul blows, interested in doing justice and with a goal of just not winning. This case was often cited by courts content on the blanket acceptance (but not so much now) of a law enforcement team that Justice Sutherland believed took the moral high ground. Join Jay Goldberg as he discusses multiple cases involving the justice needed to end police trickery and deceit.
