The McCann Mouth
I read with increasing disbelief Clarence Mitchell's criticism of the Portuguese police interviewing techniques. This clown seemed amazed that the officers interviewing their suspects would exaggerate the evidence they had. Crikey, in thirty years listening to thousands of police interviews there was hardly a time when the police did not exaggerate the evidence they had in their pockets. Yes, we've fingerprints; yes, we've got a detailed statement from the complainant; ah yes we've also got your client "banged to rights"- they actually did use this expression- with identification!
The idea that the Portuguese police would not use the same technique shows just how little this well paid mouth knows about police procedure.
And usually at some stage in the interview the client would hear " well son, if you've nothing to hide you've nothing to worry about...." Now remind me Clarence old chap, just what did your clients tell the police during interview?
I suspect he may be already regretting asking for the police file to be made public....or he ought to be!
