I watched the recent show on the Tankleff murders.My career in law enforcement spanned 3 decades with a local sheriff's dept, city, and the U.S.Dept of Justice. I watched a detective squirm as he tried to convince us he had the right man. I also saw a guilty man protest abit too much on the witness stand.
I have seen LEOs talk the weak into many things, including false confessions. When under great pressure to clear a case, LEOs have been known to do unscupulous things. I have seen it first hand.
It is my opinion that a great deal of exculpatory evidence was ignored by a detective more concerned with clearing a case than seeking the truth.

Marty, you have my sympathy.
