Police Interrogation

Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., an authority in bridging science and spirit, and a leading voice in new biology, discussed his belief that that if we use the 50 trillion cells that live harmoniously in every healthy human body as a model, we can create a new "super organism" called humanity, as well as how cellular studies point to such concepts as immortality, spirituality and mind over genes.

First hour guest, college instructor Mitchel Townsend reported on his research paper which he believes proves that a Bigfoot-like creature resides in the Mount St. Helens area of Washington state.

Police Interrogation

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - August 20, 2011
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Paul Bishop, David Elkington, Russ Baker

Novelist and screenwriter Paul Bishop joined Ian to discuss his 35-year career in the Los Angeles Police Department, where he worked as an interrogator and sex crimes detective, as well as his role on ABC's game show Take the Money and Run. Bishop said he found early in his career that he had an uncanny ability to get the guilty to confess. "You can literally see the guilt that sits in the hollow of their throat and all I have to do is move it up three inches and pull it out," he remarked. Bishop credited his success to leaving personal judgment at the door and working with whatever way the suspect finds socially acceptable to confess, such as blaming the victim for the crime.

According to Bishop, an interrogation begins before he even walks into the room by observing a suspect's behavior. A guilty person will often put his head down on the table and go to sleep, he revealed. When the face-to-face encounter finally occurs, Bishop said he sits right next to his suspects, so there is no table between them and he can read their full body language. Questioning starts with a series of innocuous questions, such as "What is your name?" and "Where do you live?", he explained, noting that the guilty see no reason not to answer truthfully. This gets them in the habit of talking and giving truthful answers, Bishop added. As they're speaking to him, Bishop said he looks for word choice and the way in which they answer his questions. He also disclosed that he can lie to suspects in order to get a confession.

Jordan Codices Update

First half-hour guest, Egyptologist and author David Elkington, provided an update on the Jordan Codices. According to Elkington, the Jordanian government is preparing to make an announcement regarding the authenticity of the lead books. Reputable laboratories across the world have performed a series of tests that confirm the metal from which the codices are made is of ancient provenance, he explained. Elkington believes these early Christian works will ultimately confirm the historicity of Christ and the accounts of his life presented in the gospels. For more information and breaking news follow the Jordan Codices on Facebook and Twitter.

Bin Laden Raid

In the second half-hour, investigative reporter Russ Baker talked about a piece he's been writing on the Bin Laden raid. He questioned the official account presented in The New Yorker of what happened that May 1st night in Abbottabad. Many of the story's details make no sense, such as the SEALs making the decision to kill Bin Laden and the US government seeking counsel from Saudi Arabian Intelligence before burying him at sea, Baker noted. He also commented on ABC's cancellation of a miniseries about the about the Kennedy family in exchange for rights to Jackie O's personal recordings.
