Overbearing police methods creat too high risk of false confession and are not likely to yield factually reliable information from the accused. A significant number of confessions that result in wrongful convictions are obtained through coercive questioning.

In determining the admissibility of confession evidence, the courts have to considere factors such as mental abuse in addition to physical force and threats.
