The Youth Of Today ? An Interview With Cassels
With scientific studies showing that juvenile brains are not fully developed and youth crimes being punished more harshly than ever before, children need more protections when police interview them, said panelists in the Conference on Public Service & the Law's juvenile law panel Feb. 12.
The Youth of Today – An interview with Cassels
"The key [to avoiding false confessions] is not to tell them the facts," Garrett added. He said he always talked to prosecutors before going to arrest a suspect, and spent hours reviewing the Malvo case prior to the interview. The reality is, "people don't talk to you unless they want to talk to you." Sometimes a suspect needs to feel comfortable first, so "you try to develop a rapport with the person you're talking to."
Garrett responded that there were hundreds of cases in big cities that involve youths. "You're just not going to be able to be that sensitive," he said, noting that it boils down to the ethical boundaries of interviewers. High-profile cases like that of the Central Park jogger undoubtedly involve more pressure, and some detectives may crack.
Block suggested that perhaps juvenile confessions could be taped, but Garrett said there are logistical issues to consider: there are only so many rooms that are equipped with audio and video equipment in police stations, and lengthy interviews would be difficult to tape. Garrett said he does occasionally tape the actual confession rather than the interview leading up to the confession.
Cassel noted that in the Malvo case a jurisdictional issue kept a court-appointed guardian and attorney blocked from the interview, although they banged on the door to get in. "There ought to be an age at which kids are not questioned" without an attorney or parental involvement, she said.
The movie is made with such style. The dialogue is constructed as a neorealism Italian comedy, like Big Deal on Madonna Street. It's almost like a comedy throughout the movie, but it's a dramatic movie. It tickles you, tickles you, tickles you, and then it slaps you really hard in the face. That recipe still works today.
Back in January, France felt the sting of ideologically motivated violence when al-Qaeda affiliates Saïd and Chérif Kouachi opened fire at the offices of Parisian satire newspaper Charlie Hebdo in response to anti-Islamist cartoons, killing 12 and harming 11 more. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Paris-born actor Vincent Cassel mentioned that the act of terrorism resonated with him in a very personal way. He harkened back to his controversial 1995 film La Haine, which he signed on for in an effort to bring the roiling racial tensions in urban Paris to light.
While he read, his cell phone buzzed. It was Scott Pioli of the New England Patriots offering an interview that led back to the NFL, that led to jobs with the Patriots, Texans and Titans, and ultimately to the Dignity Health Arizona Cardinals Training Center on Tuesday as the Cardinals' new general manager.
