It was not what you think you saw!

How sure are you that it was really your neighbor who vandalize your front gate? Or is it really that rapist who did it? How sure are you that what you saw was the real one?

What’s more, a significant proportion of people seem to be highly suggestible and will quite readily change what they remember if given appropriate cues.
