While this was prompted by another news story surrounding the Trayvon Martin shooting, my question is more generalized regarding ANY witness (of ANY case) testimony.
[h=1]Trayvon Martin shooting: Witnesses change stories ahead of Zimmerman trial[/h]
The debate question:
What witness account is more likely closer to the truth? That given as soon as the police interview each individually or later on (whether days, months, or even later when the trial comes to court?)
Do you believe that the media attention given in a high profile case tends to shape witness accounts?
