videotaping interrogations

The Illinois Commission on Capital Punishment has issued a report with a number of proposals, including one recommending that police interrogations of suspects in homicide cases be videotaped. Good idea or bad idea? Minnesota has been videotaping all interrogations of people in custody for almost a decade. The National Governor's Association includes a list of the specific recommendations made by the Commission, and a link to the full report.
