In psychology, Stockdale syndrome is a term used to describe a paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein an individual misguidedly protests his innocence to his captors when he is, in fact, guilty.
We got arrested last night. At the police station one of the boys totally lost it - developed Stockdale Syndrome and reckoned he had nothing to do with it. Embarrassing.
