The Legal Defense Show with Kirk Obear and John Birdsall 05/28/16


John and Kirk return for another episode of The Legal Defense Show for WHBL Sheboygan. They kick it off by discussing an incident shared by a fan of the show, in which the listener’s son was detained and searched by police officers due to a violation of a bike lamp ordinance, and the implications therein for fourth amendment constitutional rights. They then pick up a discussion from several weeks ago regarding Brendan Dassey, and John discusses the effects and legacy of the Reid interrogation technique, whose efficacy as a method for obtaining truthful confessions is increasingly being called into question.
