Trent, who is the most out of place in this group of manipulators. His manipulation, like Archie’s was total and deliberate and served as the focus of the book, however his motivations and simply the nature of manipulation were comparably atypical. Mr. Trent was an interrogator who was charged with receiving the confession of a young Jason Dorrant for the murder of a little girl named Alicia Bartlett. Dissimilar to the other manipulators, Mr. Trent truly believes for at least the majority of his work that he is working toward the truth, and that his manipulation is for the good of society, but he also openly acknowledges that it is a manipulation. Cormier even dedicated multiple pages to describing the circumstances Mr. Trent created in the interrogation room to make his subjects more inclined to confession.
Hodgman by Frontline, he brought up how the jury was prejudiced against the LAPD and that is why justice did not prevail in Simpson’s case.

The soundtrack of the movie is important so the songs I choose are “Strange Fruit”, “Tearin’ up My Heart”, and “Eye of the Sparrow” which are good choices for the soundtrack. The first song I choose is “Strange Fruit” by Billie Holiday. It is a dark profound song about the lynching of African Americans in the southern United States during the Jim Crow Era.
As a result, people begin to blame witchery on others whom they have vengeances with. These actions result in many well, respected people's execution. A prime example of a character who goes through this process is John Proctor. The court of Salem tests John Proctor by threatening him to confess in exchange for his life. This brings out many of his weaknesses and strengths.

Suspects commit crimes and often the victims are left wondering why the suspect’s rights seem to be more important than those of the victim. It does seem like an unfair game, the bully gets afforded everything, the victim left to suffer. In order for the justice system of the United States to stay the most balanced and civil rights friendly system in the world; suspects’ rights have to be respected and guarded so chaos doesn’t take over. Police officers through the years have gotten better with training and experience, guidance by prosecutors, and increased motivations to “do the right thing” to ensure suspects are processed correctly, and interrogated within the constraints of the U.S. Constitution. Seeing a conviction through to the end, the suspect afforded all protections under the law, and the victims seeing closure is the ultimate testament to how far law enforcement interrogations have come since Miranda.
