Memory and Eye Witness Identification

Hey guys

So since we have been learning about memory I figured I would share with you guys how memory relates to criminal justice specifically in eye witness testimony. This video shows a famous exoneration case and how the victim mistakenly identified the defendant even thought she was confident that this person committed the crime and was in no way wrong.

p.s The video is pretty lengthy but is a great example of how memory works. Enjoy!
