Yes. But they still cannot lie in court testimony. Lying is fine to determine the truth, e.g. falsely claiming that suspect DNA was found at the scene to the suspect is fine, but saying that same thing in court is perjury. The danger of that, of course, is one is likely to get a suspect to immediately "lawyer up", rather than admit to simply being a witness that may help the investigation.

2. "Vetting" potential friends, et al. does not predict the future. Every criminal has a "first time" - many of them without warnings. Some people snap. Some people get desperate.
3. If you're trying to imply that having many friends and not "vetting" them all is an example of "grand stupidity", you're being absolutely ridiculous.
Who says the company doesn't have proper security or surveillance? There are many companies with the best of both that get things stolen from them - that's just how the world works. You're comment about staying late being stupid is dumb in and of itself.You're stupid for staying late at work to begin with. You're even stupider for working at a company without proper security and surveilance measures in place.
You've frankly come up with arbitrary parameters for "grand stupidity" and thus, your argument is invalid.
