Videotaped Interrogations and Confessions: Does an Equal-focus Camera Perspective Ensure Equal Justice for All?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Evaluations of videotaped criminal confessions can be influenced by the camera perspective taken during recording. Interrogations/confessions recorded with the camera directing observers’ visual attention onto the suspect lead to biased judgments of the suspect. Although a camera perspective that directs visual attention onto the suspect and interrogator equally appears to promote unbiased judgments, investigations to date have relied on videotapes that depict only Caucasian suspects/interrogators. We examined the possibility that even equal-focus videotapes may become problematic when the suspect is a minority and the interrogator is Caucasian. That is, to the extent that Caucasian observers are inclined to direct more of their attention onto minorities, an effect documented previously, we expected biased judgments of the suspect to also occur in equal-focus videotapes. Three experiments provided evidence of this racial salience bias.
