Very true, lots of research has been carried out into witness reliability. One of my favourites is a study where they showed volunteers a video of a car crash on a deserted country road. There was absolutely nothing to distract the witnesses from the accident, no other traffic, no people, nothing. In the witness accounts, the cars were of all colours, when in fact they were the same (both blue, I think). Quite interesting.Cheers,Gosta.
