you have to becareful with witnesses

If someone adamantly suggests what had happened in the presence of witnesses that same witness later will claim to have seen the exact same thing and even believe it to be true. It's easy to contaminate witnesses especially if witnesses watched the news and believe that the news generally tells the truth. Such a contamination will often change details or fill in the blanks for a witness making them unreliable. Haven't you seen those experiments where a pretend robber comes into a seminar or college class and when he runs out people are asked what they saw? Have also seen those experiments where a false witness will mingle among the crowd and plant false testimony on what he'd seen only to then cause other people to unknowingly incorporate his false information into their eyewitness account?

It's pretty interesting stuff
