Oh. Silly me. I forgot that the FBI has a blanket policy of not recording their interviews or interrogations so that they can lie as much as they want about what a suspect or witness says. It’s official policy for the entire FBI. Silly me. I forgot for a second and thought they were somehow still at least attempting to appear legit.
“But the FBI leaves out the even more potent criticism of its practice — that such interview tactics seem virtually geared toward establishing as fact what the FBI wanted to hear from the witness. Frightened and confused interviewees, who, if they deny they said what any 302 report claims they uttered, can then be indicted for making false statements. The FBI is thus able to put words into a witness or suspect’s mouth and coerce him to adopt the FBI’s version as his own. The FBI thus establishes the official version of what a witness said, and the pressure on the witness to adhere to the 302 version is enormous. Any deviation, after all, raises the question: “Were you lying during your FBI interview, or are you lying now?”” Boston Globe 2010
One guys asks the questions while the other guy pretends to fill out the 302 report that was actually filled out by a PR guy a couple days before and when the suspect refuses to sign it, shit happens I guess. Oh, wait… he goes “crazy” and has to get shot.
Are you shitting me?
ABC “News” (ok, they can’t even be called “news” after this) is reporting that “sources” told them that Ibragim Todashev was about to sign a confession, saying he and Tamerlan Tsarnaev brutally murdered a couple of guys over some drugs two years ago, when he suddenly and out of the blue “went crazy” and started stabbing the FBI agent for no apparent reason.
“An acquaintance of deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was “about to sign a statement” confessing his and Tsarnaev’s involvement in an unsolved triple murder when he was killed by an FBI agent, sources told ABC…
… At some point during the interview, Todashev “just went crazy,” law enforcement officials told ABC News. The Chechen immigrant pulled out a knife and stabbed the FBI agent several times before the agent shot and killed him. The agent’s injuries were non-life threatening.” Huffington Post
You mean to tell me the guy took the time to make a confession and snitch on Tamerlan, even writing it all down, then OUT OF THE BLUE he gets his hands on some kind of little knife and attacks one of the 5 or more armed law enforcement officers in the room?
“It’s not clear who shot Todashev, officials say, because — while he was being questioned by an FBI agent — officers from the Massachusetts state police and the Orlando police department were also present in the house where the interrogation was going on.” NBC “news”
The FBI could not have confessed that they killed Ibragim Todashev while trying to coerce him into a false confession any better if they has set out to do that.
They don’t have a video or audio tape of the confession. If they did, it would have been released by now. It would also have the attack on it.
At what time did law enforcement stop recording confessions?
Apparently they also didn’t have a signed statement either.
And what do you mean it’s not clear who shot him? How many people fired a gun in the little room? Do you think the law enforcement “experts” could figure that one out?…
