My favorite interrogation scene
It’s disturbing to realize I have a favorite interrogation scene, but now isn’t the time for introspection. My students are taking their criminal procedure final tomorrow, and interrogation is much on my mind. Thus I present you with what I believe is the finest interrogation in television history, and perhaps the most realistic fictional one, from the fantastic HBO series The Wire.
I love showing this clip to my students. It’s a great antidote to the myopia that develops from breathing too much of the rarified air of Supreme Court opinions. Warning: every third word is m@#$!%$*&^!r.
Do you have any clips you love to show your students — interrogations or otherwise?
