Quote from Gerry Spence,

"Nearly every day on the television set the hero cop
breaks into the bad guy’s house and beats a confession out of him and we cheer on the cop.
Propaganda smears our clear vision. It causes us to accept the diminishment of our constitutional protections as something to be lauded --
after all, the cop was protecting us."
