    Obviously, I agree with you.

    But, in the interest of conversation and consistency, should this also extend to lying? For example, it is flat-out illegal for a suspect or witness to lie to the police during a criminal investigation. But, not only are the police legally allowed to lie to suspects and witnesses, they are encouraged to do so.

    Should we hold the same standards to the police in that scenario that they is held to us?
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I moved to a neighboring state 7 years ago, and have since come to observe how totally effed-up Illinois is. They do some truly bizarre scheit there.

    If there is no criminal penalties for police lying to suspects then there should be no criminal penalties for lying to the police. I believe law enforcement should be held to the same exact standards as the rest of the civilian population.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
