    Child interviewing techniques derived from transcripts of the McMartin Preschool case were found to be substantially more effective than simple suggestive questions at inducing preschool children to make false allegations against a classroom visitor. Thirty-six children interviewed with McMartin techniques made 58% accusations, compared with 17% for 30 children interviewed with suggestive questions. Social influence and reinforcement appeared to be more powerful determinants of children's answers than simple suggestive questions. The SIRR model is proposed to explain how false statements may be elicited from children or adults.

    I suffer from many nightmares and have done so for many years. Strangely, I didn't have them during the 15 years I in spent in prison after being wrongly convicted, with three others, for the 1975 Guildford and Woolwich pub bombings. It was almost as if I was in the eye of the storm while I was inside, and everything was being held back for a replay later in my life. Our case is well known now as one of first major miscarriages of justice. I am often contacted by people who, like me, spent many years on death row after being wrongly convicted. People ask whether a case like ours could happen today. Of course it could. I know of many innocent people still behind bars and I know there are echoes of what happened to us in cases that are still coming to light today. We were tortured – guns held to our heads. The case against us was circumstantial. We tried to get people to listen to what had happened to us, and it took years before our voices were heard outside.…

    The picture above best symbolizes my views on justice for the common good. In general the courts are expected to be impartial and fair institutions in a system of good governance, it should through this method be a system that can uphold the rule of law and protect human rights. Justice is symbolized through lady justice, blindfolded, holding a pair of scales and wielding a double edged sword. The blindfold represents justice being blind to all outside sources like money, power or political views; Even-handedness. The pair of scales represents truth and fairness balancing the two appropriately, which I find would be hard to do if one is not candor. The double edged-sword is there to be wielded for either party which stands before lady justice and it represents the power of reason and justice.…

    I believe that Americans have a choice whether they want to stand up for others or to stay neutral, we are not required to fight the battle of others but in my opinion we should help others in need. If you don’t stand up for justice of all people you are technically letting it happen but it doesn’t mean you support injustice or propose it upon others. If you see injustice happening what do you do? Do you step in or do you let it go? I think it depends on the situation, if it is someone that can’t fend for themselves then yes I believe you should step in, if someone is harming another to better themselves someone should step in.…
