Today on Real Talk with Rashad Richey, we discussed coerced confessions which lead to wrongful convictions. Recently five African-American men were awarded $40 million for being wrongfully convicted for the rape and murder of a New York woman whom was abducted while jogging in Central Park. The men all claimed that they were coerced into admitting that they were responsible for the woman’s death however, their convictions were overturned after the individual responsible for the rape and murder confessed years later.

Rashad proposed the mandatory video recording of all police interrogations in efforts to curtail such injustices from taking place.

Representative Billy Mitchell and Senator Gloria Butler joined today’s discussion of coerced confessions. Listen to a clip of today’s show below.
