When interviewed afterwards more than half the class recalled that the black man had stabbed the white man.

Back in the 1960s, my PSYC100 course, made a point of the unreliability of eyewitness testimony.

But juries eat it up.

The past is based on memory and imagination, the projected future is based on that, so we only have the
pure present which eludes our grasp.
