True Crime False Memory

True Crime

Two muggers assault an older woman and drag her down the street as she desperately holds onto her purse. The witness describes the main culprit as having long hair and no- tattoos, but after participating in a highly suggestive identification test, she falsely identifies Johnny Smith, a juvenile who is who is covered in tattoos and has short hair. This mistaken identification was then reinforced by the officer, which lead the witness to change her memory to match Johnny, now falsely remembering that the culprit actually had short hair and tattoos.
