Могут ли в США посадить на основании собственного признания вины без прочих доказательств?

Могут. Не зря при задержании зачитывают "Миранду".
Вот вам пример из недавнего прошлого:
In 2012 a man from New Jersey, Jose Lopez, reached out to investigators: He believed that his brother-in-law, Pedro Hernandez, could have been responsible for Etan’s disappearance. Statements by Hernandez's sister, Nina Hernandez, and Tomas Rivera, leader of a Charismatic Christianity group at St. Anthony of Padua, a Roman Catholic church in Camden, New Jersey, indicated that Hernandez may have publicly confessed to murdering Etan in the presence of fellow parishioners in the early 1980s. According to Hernandez's sister, it was an "open family secret that he had confessed in the church." A New York grand jury indicted Hernandez on November 14, 2012, on charges of second-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping. His lawyer has stated that Hernandez was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder, which includes hallucinations The lawyer has also said his client has a low IQ of around 70, "at the border of intellectual disability."
On December 12, 2012, Hernandez pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder and one count of kidnapping in a New York court. In April 2013, Harvey Fishbein, a Legal aid criminal defense lawyer for Pedro Hernandez, filed a motion to dismiss the case, citing that Hernandez's "confession in one of the nation's most notorious child disappearances was false, peppered with questionable claims and made after almost seven hours of police questioning". The next month, however, New York Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley ruled that the evidence was "legally sufficient to support the charges" and that the case could move forward. He also ordered a hearing to determine whether the defendant's statements could be used at trial
The case resulted in a mistrial in May 2015 due to a hung jury, which was deadlocked 11 against 1 for conviction. A retrial began on October 19, 2016, in a New York City court, with jury deliberations in February 2017. On February 14, 2017, Hernandez was found guilty of kidnapping and felony murder. Sentencing was scheduled on February 28, with Hernandez facing up to 25 years to life in prison.
Отсюда

Чувак сознался на исповеди, что он убил мальчика, на него много лет спустя донесли в полицию и на основании этого признания (единственное доказательство) признали виновным в убийстве. Суд теперь решает насколько его посадить. Чувак - шизофреник с галлюцинациями, если что.

Это к вопросу о том, насколько незаконно "лютуют сатрапы" арестовывая подстрекателей школоты, которые избивали полицию во время бунта школоты 26 апреля. Единственным доказательством в данном случае служат публичные признания арестованых.
