It’s not easy to reconstruct your memory and we always rely on our knowledge and attitudes to fill in the gaps. Eyewitness can be right but not always. In Zimmerman trial the witnesses were saying something totally different and it’s really hard to know which one is right. Although they saw the same thing they explained it differently. One witness said she saw two people and then the second time she said she only saw one person that explains to us that we can’t always rely on eyewitness.
There are three logical fallacies that could exemplify the incorrect thinking shown from the Amityville Hauntings followers. The first, and probably most significant, would be the fact that it is human nature to believe stories rather than statistics. The truth about Amityville is that there are really no statistics to be shown. That is understandable, considering there are not many numbers surrounding the whole situation, but the whole scenario itself is one large story, thus supporting the fact that the we should remain skeptical of the hauntings.

Do you think eyewitness is reliable? We as humans should not rely on eyewitness consistently. I have so many reasons to why I believe eyewitness is not as strong as DNA testing. In the article it stated the Innocence Project researchers have indicated that 73 percent of the 239 convictions overturned trough DNA testing it based on eyewitness proof. I believe that eyewitness can sometimes be helpful and reliable but other times it’s not as reliable.
Many people are undecided on what they believe, based off our survey so arguments need to be effective. A neutral audience is a fair debate setting, for both individuals. Logos arguments will need to be very effective because of how split the audience is. One point of disagreement between my side and the audience is a disagreement with my argument as a whole. 50 percent of the audience disagrees with the statement that we should allow the NSA to continue their surveillance of citizens.
It is a widely-known popular believe that hypnosis can unlock repressed or hidden memories. With so many television shows and movies suggesting that the use of hypnosis may help a witness to remember the face of a criminal or the exact details of an event, it is no surprise that hypnosis has taken root as a credible method of memory retrieval. As an article from the American Psychological Association states, “… people may believe hypnotically induced memories are more reliable, mirroring a mistaken cultural belief that hypnosis acts like a truth serum. Hypnosis is "on thin ice" when used to recover memories, as is the case with most other memory retrieval techniques” (Smith).
