Justices say age counts when child suspects are questioned Web Link

What is absent from this panel of legal minds, a criminal defense attorney. Police and prosecutors work together on convictions and in reality are no friends of the innocent. Especially our most venerable teenagers. No one should speak to the police without an attorney present under any circumstance. Police can and will lie using coercion tactics which is constitutionally personable. Don't take this information me, do your own homework.
