I am listening to The Confession by John Grisham. Grisham is on an anti death penalty soapbox, but I still enjoy this book. I am not even halfway finished with it. I know this is fictional, but John Grisham is correct about the fact that police can lie during an interrogation, and this fact bothers me. I also know that if I am questioned by police re. a crime, I will get a lawyer, even if I'm innocent. This is my right-to have a lawyer. Too often people think police are always good, but they forget, they are sinful like every other human. I also realize that police and too many people in this country do not act like people are innocent until proven guilty; people automatically assume, "The police wouldn't wrongly accuse someone of a crime; they must be right." Dana's reaction about Travis Boyette at the beginning is sadly true about what happens in many churches with those who have major sins.
