What might lead an innocent man to confess to something he didn’t do?
When Adrian Thomas walked into the Troy, New York police station and waived his Miranda rights, he didn’t know he was being video-recorded.
His four-month-old baby lay brain-dead in a pediatric ICU. The doctors believed it was “shaken baby” abuse, and Adrian Thomas became the main suspect. And so began a psychological battle: the detectives repeatedly lied to – and manipulated – their suspect. And they reassured Adrian Thomas that if he told them what happened, the police would view it as an accident, without jail time. For the next several hours, the detectives used an array of powerful psychological techniques to ramp up the pressure and eventually extracted a confession. (Submarine Entertainment)
