I felt that case very close series. And so I helped they me and Damien Echols was on the path. And Joe Berlinger was on the panel with mixed. I helped him get out of prison with Peter Jackson director Lord of the rings brought me and at the time everything was secret along with this group of forensic. You know, you know, experts. So you see cases like that. And now that I'm out of the bureau. I I couldn't do these kind of cases in the bureau, but now out of euro, I've been helping on cases where I see false. Confessions have been that given by innocent people wrongful wrongful convictions like in the west Memphis, three like in Amanda Knox with where they bring in a tag team match the case a man that I know they brought in ten police officers. Detectives who are gonna interrogate or attack team over forty hours to break down. And I always say an innocent person is easy to ensure gate than than the Kremlin himself or herself. Because the innocent person when they're derogated. Like this by some say, it's corrupt the investigator. They think that the person being targeted at this will be over here that come out. I get my attorney they'll know that. And but meanwhile, you can fast or you've you've signed a confession and problem too. Is that it should be required everywhere, including FBI FBI doesn't use. This is is the tape tape the interrogation tape, the interviews. And I mean from the beginning to the end not not turning the tape recorder on after you got the because even or a scrupulous cop. Facts of the case. Now, you regurgitating back. So all the jurors will hear is. Oh, yeah. It's just personally he knew everything about the case. So. Him. So. So I changed, but when I see these predatory types, and there's there's all kinds of evidence that we have all not just I witnessed on some jailhouse snitch or something like that that. Yeah.
