In this episode of "Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski," guest Eric Faddis, a former felony prosecutor and attorney, discusses the ongoing trial of Richard Allen, focusing on recent developments concerning the mishandling of Miranda rights and potential suppression of crucial interrogation videos. The conversation explores the implications of these legal missteps on Allen’s defense, particularly how they could lead to the suppression of his statements, thus weakening the prosecution's case. They delve into the broader issues of interrogation tactics in the US, comparing them unfavorably with practices in the UK and discussing the potential for false confessions under pressure. The discussion also addresses the societal pressures on law enforcement to resolve cases swiftly, which may lead to rushed and flawed investigations. Finally, Faddis speculates on the possible outcomes of the trial, including the impact of a second trial if the first is deemed botched, and the potential for a significant legal settlement for Allen if his rights are found to have been violated.
