    Doesn't that the fact the you, yes you, can be made to confess to assassinating John F Kennedy, if the police are given enough time, scare you?  

    Humans have only a limited ability to cope with stress before they will do just about anything to terminate the stress, including making a false confession.  

    Pretty scary, huh?  That's why people believe, it could never happen to me.
