2) Errors by Eyewitnesses when Identifying Black Suspects
Black male suspects with stereotypical facial features had a higher likelihood of being misidentified as the offender in lineups with study participants. The remarkable fact about this study is that the pictures of black men used as test material were pictures of men who were exonerated by the Innocence Project due to evidence. Moreover, misidentifications of these men were more likely even independent of the subject’s ethnic origin. Source: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/lcrp.12105/full
