Question and answer
why would theme development be effective when interrogating a person?
Lack of arguments and themes to persuade subjects to tell the truth stands as a major cause of interrogation failures. Three main solutions exist for combating this problem. [ First, experience provides investigators with an ever-increasing supply of arguments. Conducting more interrogations gives investigators additional ideas and a wider variety of themes to pursue. Next, preparation allows investigators to plan their persuasive themes and arguments before interrogating subjects. Certain themes and arguments remain universally valuable in conducting successful interrogations. These
concepts include minimizing the crime, blaming the victim, decreasing the shamefulness of the act, increasing guilt feelings, and appealing to the subjects hope for a better outcome. However, the interrogator should not make this latter appeal as a promise of leniency for the subject. Such a promise violates the subjects right to due process of law and may provide the legal basis for excluding the confession as evidence.6 Also, many crimes suggest a number of related themes. For example, theft may bring to mind such themes as stealing to support certain lifestyles, blaming the victims, obtaining the subjects version of the incidents, or even commending the subjects for the professionalism of the crimes. Finally, conducting good interviews before the interrogations and noting the subjects key responses allow investigators to convert these answers into persuasive themes and arguments in interrogations.7 Knowing what is important to subjects gives interrogators plenty of topics to convert into themes, which helps combat their greatest problem- running out of things to talk about during interrogations. ]
