Power, a major influence throughout all of history. Wars, love, and countries all began with the same concept: power. Sometimes, power is used responsibly; other time the platform of prestige authority is used in a manipulative way.

Eye witness identification involves selecting an accused perpetrator from a police line up, sketch or being at the crime scene during the murder time.
