Chris Tapp: Idaho: False confessions: Reporter Bryan Clark looks into ways of stopping wrongful convictions, in the Idaho Falls Post Register... “Detective (Jared) Fuhriman testified that he didn’t feed any facts to Chris Tapp,” Drizin said. “The video was powerful proof that that testimony was false. And in states where they don’t have an electronic recording, there’s really no way to challenge erroneous testimony by law enforcement officers about what was said during an interrogation. Without a recording, there would be no way to prove Detective (Steve) Finn threatened him (Tapp) with the death penalty. Detectives conveniently forget or misremember such threats in the absence of recordings.”.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: I am monitoring this case/issue. Keep your eye on the Charles Smith Blog for reports on developments. The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith.
