Much can be learned about crime scene investigators, criminalists, forensic scientists, and criminal investigators from videos regarding the following cases:
John Stoll and the documentary movie "Witch Hunt" concerning Bakersfield, California (see Youtube). The government taught sexual activity to children and then used the children to frame the children's parents, sentencing the parents to prison for decades. Of course, in the USA, the government molests children every morning. Children who resist are persecuted and molested even more. It has been happening since 1892.
Michael Crowe, a teenager accused of stabbing his sister Stephanie, interrogated and coerced to confess to the murder in Escondido, California.
Timothy Masters, another teenager accused of murder (of Peggy Hettrick) in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Webber, 40, answered U.S. District Court Judge Tom Varlan's questions but stood ramrod straight and quiet for most of the 30-minute hearing.
Webber is one of five former Campbell County lawmen charged with federal civil rights violations of Lester Eugene Siler, 42, of the White Oak community.
He was the first to appear in court; three others are due in court later this week. The fifth is yet to be scheduled.
They are charged with handcuffing and torturing Siler for two hours on July 8, 2004, demanding his drugs and money.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles Atchley said none of the men deserved -- under federal law -- their freedom and asked Varlan to incarcerate them after their pleas.
Varlan agreed and ordered Webber to be taken into custody immediately. He is to be sentenced May 23.
Siler and members of his family were present in the courtroom.
Siler's attorneys said they were pleased with the outcome and will probably file a lawsuit within the next 30 days.
Webber, who headed narcotics investigations for Campbell County and is accused of being the ringleader in the alleged torture, pleaded guilty to an information charging him with conspiracy to violate Siler's civil rights.
Samuel Franklin, 42, a veteran detective at the agency and head of its D.A.R.E. program, is scheduled to plead guilty Wednesday, court records show. Rookie Deputy Joshua Monday, 24, and process server Shayne Green, 35, are expected to plead guilty Thursday, according to records.
The four lawmen and part-time process server William Carroll, 26, were named in federal informations filed earlier this month in U.S. District Court. They are accused of beating and torturing Siler after showing up at his house to serve a violation of probation warrant.
Part of the alleged attack was captured on an audiotape after Siler's wife, Jenny, stashed a tape recorder in the kitchen. An FBI transcript of the tape revealed in chilling detail how Siler was threatened, beaten and tortured, with deputies demanding two things from him: that he sign a form to show he agreed for his house to be searched and that he turn over to them all his cash and drugs.
Attorneys for Webber and Franklin filed motions asking Varlan to allow their clients to remain free pending sentencing hearings.
An attorney for Monday, who is not charged in the conspiracy but instead is accused of a separate count of pointing a gun at Siler and threatening to shoot him during Siler's ordeal, also wants his client freed until he is sentenced.
Attorney Lee Asbury argued in his motion that Webber, who lives in Anderson County, "has no prior criminal record" and "has never missed or been late for an appointment with the U.S. Attorney."
Webber, Asbury insisted, should be allowed his freedom because "he has at all times cooperated with the United States Attorney, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Department of Justice."
Asbury's motion does not note, however, that Webber is accused in state court charges of lying to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in that agency's initial investigation of the incident.
Green, Monday and Franklin also are charged in state court with perjury. The four also face charges in Campbell County Criminal Court of official oppression. District Attorney General Paul Phillips has said state court charges likely will be dropped if the men wind up imprisoned in the federal case. Federal penalties are higher than any that might be handed out in state court, he has said.
Franklin's attorney, Andrew S. Roskind, contends Franklin only went to Siler's house at the request of Webber. Franklin, Roskind says, asked Siler's wife and son to leave the house and, along with the other four lawmen, demanded Siler sign the consent form.
"After making the request, Mr. Franklin threatened Mr. Siler with the use of a slapjack and breaking Mr. Siler's fingers," Roskind wrote. "Mr. Franklin never carried through with either threat nor did he allow one of the other four ... to use his slapjack or break Mr. Siler's fingers.
"Unfortunately and regrettably, although Mr. Franklin never physically harmed Mr. Siler, he failed to stop the other individuals from inflicting further ... harm and injury," Roskind continued.
Roskind contends in his motion that Franklin has served both Campbell County and his country -- he was once in the military -- admirably and deserves freedom pending sentencing because of that.
Monday's attorney, Dennis Francis, writes that his client has no prior criminal history and would agree to be electronically monitored if allowed to remain free.
Atchley counters that none of the men are entitled to freedom.
All, he wrote, will plead guilty to a "crime of violence" for which federal law requires immediate detention. The only exceptions to that law, Atchley noted, would come if the case against them was weak or the lawmen were likely to receive probation.
"The exceptions do not apply," Atchley wrote, indicating that he will indeed seek prison terms for the men.
As for Franklin, Atchley contends Franklin's service to Campbell County and the military does not set him apart from the garden-variety criminal.
"Even painting the defendant's employment history and military service
in the best possible light, it seems a bit of a stretch to state that
these make his personal character out of the ordinary, uncommon and rare,"
Defense In Drug Case Cries Foul In Document Seizure . Published: May

TAMPA - Weeks before a man accused of being a drug kingpin is
set to go on trial, federal investigators have seized what defense attorneys
say are crucial defense documents, including a 23-page memo outlining
the defense's strategy.
The prosecution says the seizure of documents from a defense investigator who was returning from a trip to Colombia was part of an investigation into whether the investigator may have been involved in money laundering or other financial crimes.
"It is a very, I think, bizarre situation we find ourselves in," U.S. Magistrate Elizabeth Jenkins said as she grappled with defense requests that she sanction the prosecution and consider dismissing the case against Joaquin Mario Valencia-Trujillo.
Later, addressing the Assistant U.S. Attorney, Jenkins said, "You've made a very serious step. Whether it's a misstep or not remains to be seen."
Accused of once being a leader in Colombia's notorious Cali Cartel, Valencia-Trujillo is the most-wanted suspect arrested so far in Operation Panama Express, a decadelong international drug investigation run from Tampa. He is scheduled to go on trial June 5. It is expected to take six months.
The Assistant U.S. Attorney asked Jenkins to close to the public a hearing on the matter of the seized documents. Jenkins denied the request and kept Wednesday's hearing open.
Defense attorney Ronald J. Kurpiers II called the document seizure outrageous and said it compromised the defense. "This is unprecedented in the American judicial system," he said. "To have the government go and seize and search defense product in preparation and less than 30 days before trial is unprecedented."
Defense investigator George Scott, a retired Internal Revenue Service investigator, testified he went to Colombia to help prepare for the trial and returned May 4. After he left his airplane at Miami International Airport, he said, he was pulled aside by federal customs inspectors, who detained him and went through his luggage.
"I immediately identified who I was, and I also stated there were documents in my bags that I believed were covered by the attorney work product," Scott testified. Scott said he was detained five hours, causing him to miss his flight to Tampa. He said government agents seized the box of documents without explanation.
The assistant United States Attorney, who is not involved in the prosecution of Valencia-Trujillo, said he has taken steps to isolate the documents from federal prosecutors and investigators involved in the trial.
Although the Assistant United States Attorney allowed the defense team to copy the documents Tuesday after directed by the judge, Jenkins said that was not enough to solve the problems created by the seizure.
She directed the prosecution to file court briefs addressing certain legal issues. She scheduled the hearing to resume Friday morning.
