True Crime False Memory

True Crime

A hooded gunman on a bicycle rides up to Pedro and Alma, pulls out a silver automatic handgun, and demands their money. The next day, Pedro went out searching for the gunman and found Ronny; a 13-year old African-American boy with a hooded sweatshirt on a bicycle who had never been in trouble with the law, and at that moment decided that Ronny was the culprit. The only problem was, Ronny did not match the description of the gunman they had provided right after the robbery. Over the course of the next few months Pedro and Alma’s memory for the gunman evolved to match Ronny, as they doubled down on their belief that Ronny was the robber.
