    im answering yes because i dont see the harm in it, if im being interrogated and the cops lie to me and im innocent it doenst change anything.
    possibly; possibly not. suppose the police officer invents a story that you've been having an affair in order to enrage your wife enough that she'll turn on you. in this case, she gives them other info which leads them to nail you for something completely unrelated. there are so many laws that it's difficult to not be guilty of something.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. if it is allowed, there would have to be very strict policies around it.

    No. Lying is not professional and reduces creditiablility in any field.

    Of course they should be allowed to lie. There is no need to be honorable to the dishonorable, and criminals are dishonorable by definition.

    the Police dont interview guilty people. They interview people that might be guilty.

    Perception IS reality, mak. So far as I'm concerned, if the police have a reason to question you, you're guilty of grand stupidity if nothing else.

    Re: Lying cops...

    I was questioned recently about someone I knew (worked with) 3 years ago. Would it have been alright for the police to lie to me?

    You realize that close friends and family members of murder victims are often questioned just as a matter of routine, right? You also realize that a guilty person might accuse a completely innocent person while being interrogated, right? There are plenty of situations in which innocent people might be questioned that having nothing to do with "grand stupidity".

    Re: Lying cops...

    Police should be able to say anything they want to try and get a person to confess! If you know your rights and how the justice system works, then you should know when a police officer is lying or not! Just remember that anything a cop says you should ask for proof. If they say your friend confessed then you ask to see the written confession. If they say they can cut you a deal then say you want to hear it from the prosecutor or see a piece of paper that says that. The law is all about physical evidence so whatever an officer says can be hot air! Plus don't forget you can ask for a lawyer before the cop can even question you!

    I do think there are corrupt cops out there but if you are being questioned you can protect yourself by knowing your rights and their limits!

    Re: Lying cops...

    The tactics of the police are tempered by the constitution and rights of the individual. If an individual is properly read their Miranda rights, where they are not denied of their right to counsel and to silence and where their rights to unlawful search and seizure are not violated, deceptive interrogation tactics are pretty much irrelevant. Its a dance the police have to engage in with the criminals. Seldom does X mark the spot and is there clear undeniable evidence. The police have to be able to engage in a little bit of trickery.
