How many innocent defendants are in fact screened out by these early mechanisms is unknown. Simon shows how flawed investigations produce erroneous evidence and why well-meaning juries send innocent people to prison and set the guilty free. The adversarial winnowing of evidence, the truth testing by cross examination, and the hearty good sense of the twelve good men and true in the jury box have been almost unquestioned as the best the criminal justice system could hope for. It sets aside the egalitarian concern that the system works unequally for the technocratic concern that the system does not work at all.

This book had some great points but was written so densely that it was very difficult for my daughter and I to get through. Alschuler University of Chicago In this important book, Dan Simon appraises a now-sizeable body of evidence that our criminal justice procedures are highly prone to serious error. Any person just taken into custody is probably not in the best position to engage a skilled interrogator. Efforts are made to empower this principle through reflection on its underlying values and aspirations, and this in order to meet some of the legitimate ideals and concerns of restorative justice. Second, police investigations are opaque; much of the information courts need to regulate investigators currently goes unrecorded.
The best word to describe the book is encyclopedic. It is likely that for most people eyewitness testimony concerning people and events is given an immediate and unshakable credibility. Simon offers an array of feasible ways to improve the accuracy of criminal investigations and trials. If it believes the story, by definition there is no reasonable doubt. Police detectives, witnesses, suspects, and victims shape the course of investigations, while prosecutors, defense attorneys, jurors, and judges affect the outcome of adjudication. Do independent judiciaries promote economic freedom? Lawyers call witnesses, who tell a story about what they have seen and experienced.

In his comprehensive look at the underlying cognitive science, he highlights the many potential pitfalls that might trip up the people involved at each stage of the judicial process. سوف نتعلم المبادئ الستة الأساسية, وكيف نستعملها كي نصبح مهرة في فن الإقناع- وكيف ندافع عن أنفسنا ضد من يحاول أن يستغلنا بإقناعنا بما يريد.

In Doubt is a triumph of broad knowledge, good sense, and great literary skill.
This often leads investigators to draw faulty conclusions, assess suspects' truthfulness incorrectly, and conduct coercive interrogations that can lead to false confessions. In like manner, he dissects the processes of memory, recall, and later description of remembered events and people. Consequently, a close examination of these processes, and their forensic significance, would seem essential to an improvement in our criminal procedure. At each stage of the criminal process — from probable cause to arrest, to prima facie case for indictment, to the burden of proof for conviction — any re-examination of a prior determination of evidence is closed off by a subsequent satisfaction of a higher order of proof. In Doubt turns to social psychology to understand why the criminal justice system so often goes awry. In the second part, attention is drawn to the legitimacy of restorative justice practices. In litigation judges are confronted with empirical evidence in cases ranging from bankruptcy and taxation to criminal law and environmental infringement.
