Police in Indonesia held a suspected cell phone thief down, draped a live snake around his shoulders, and rubbed the man's face with snake's head in an attempt to coerce a confession from him. Video of the interrogation shows the man screaming in fear. "The investigator was not professional in doing his job," said Police Chief Tonny Ananda Swadaya.
