The case against Brendan is even weaker. For me the moment they start suggesting what happens I disregard the entire confession. Gotta teach these cops how to do their job by assuring they never get prosecutions when they don't do it properly.
Not to mention that his lawyer never insisted to be present and his mum says she was never asked. When watching something like this, I know I can always be influenced by the editing (I will have to read through Saltines links another day) but I just don't understand how his whole case just wouldn't have been completely thrown out.
Plus, I remember the prosecutor saying something to the effect that the crime didn't take play in the trailer but the garage during one the responses in Steven's case.
I first heard of this on /Filmcast and they were making a point about how it is such a counter example to something like The Jinx. There you have somebody guilty but he has all the money and almost gets every break possible if not for his own fault in the end. Here you most likely have somebody innocent but of little means and gets crushed at every possibility.
