if you want to just "survive an interrogation" just tell them what they want to hear
as soon as possible.
NOTE this may not even be
the truth, but as long as it is what they want to hear
it will stop.
if you "don't want to tell" them something, well good luck with that. EVERYBODY has a breaking point, it's just a matter of how long it takes, vs
how far those that want the answer are willing to go. sometimes if you are lucky you would be able to hold out "just long enough". this is more true
for a "war" type thing, where they may be wanting plans you may know, that if it takes just long enough, what you know will already have occurred,
or no longer relevant. but if you can hold up long enough, they might realize you are telling the truth, or give up, (doesn't matter which) and let
you go, just be prepared for HOURS of "FUN" and games
until it gets to that point. no matter how innocent you really are, or what information
they want that you just don't know.
the biggest issue with interrogation is that even an interrogation not using so called "torture techniques" is still torture
of a sort. and
as such has the same issues with is it truth or just what the integrator wanted to hear. people will sometimes tell them just want they want, just to
make it "all go away", this doesn't mean what they tell you is actually the truth. one reason that any "confession" that comes out of an
interrogation should actually be considered suspect unless other actual proof
backs it up. then again even that "proof" could be taken many
different ways depending on what a person "interpreting it" wants
it to be. i have always wondered how many "innocent people" have been put
away with real perpetrators remaining at large due to confessions
made under the torture
of an interrogation.
we have all seen on TV where they "interrogate" a suspect. they yell, show evidence, try to contradict and confuse the suspect, even right out LIE
till the suspect "admits" to the crime. all pretty much true, yet at the same time doesn't really show
what it really is. you may be
questioned for HOURS with no break. they continually tell you they KNOW
you are lying, so even when innocent the pressure builds up as they
have NO INTEREST of hearing the TRUTH, just what they WANT to hear. they will completely fabricate things to force you to say what they want, like
"we have a witness that SAW you do it", even when there is no such witness. they will ignore any plea that it wasn't you or you didn't do what
they say, or know what they think you know. they constantly try to trip you up. they work at you until in all honesty YOU don't even KNOW what the
real truth is anymore. they stress you out until you just can't take the harassment anymore. THEN they hit you with a way to make it all stop, "just
tell us you did it, and we will go easy on you, then this can all stop". (this would be even MORE effective with physical
torture not just
of say a police interrogation.) at that point it seems like an easy way out, after all they don't want the truth
what they already think
is the truth, they haven't listened when you try to tell them the truth. such an easy way to let the torture
stop, to just get out of there. it is REALLY HARD not to admit to what they want you to admit to, true or not. i have been there, completely INNOCENT
yet i found it rather hard NOT to admit to what they wanted just to make it all stop.
all in all if you really want to "survive an interrogation" the best way is not to be interrogated in the first place. and if it is the police
"questioning" you no matter what innocent OR guilty get a lawyer
, no mater what the cops say. because if the "think" you are guilty they
will do their best (should i say worst?), to get you to admit to whatever they want. even if they just want info they "think" you have, get a lawyer
for the same reason, they will not be satisfied until you tell them exactly what they want no matter if it is true or not.
