[was: Hello List, Wouldn't want to teach my grandmother about eggs etc., but can't help wondering how many investigators actually follow a sensible protocal, maybe like this one: Protocol for impartial witness interview 1) Record a spontaneous complete description from witness. 2) Followed-up by witness describing what he/she meant by words and phrases used in initial description, including example comparisons of factors such as heights, colours, angular `sizes', velocities etc. and of any `emotions' or `feelings' experienced. At no time during either description should the investigator prompt the witness by even one word; prompting is known to impair actual memory and to create false memories. We should learn from the past mistakes made during hypnosis, where even the body-language of the investigator has tended to promote a personal agend - so the investigator should be seated and preferrably out of the direct line-of-sight of the witness during descriptions.
