    That is one of the dumbest things I have read in a long time. Very ignorant. Way to make a possibly interesting and intelligent thread into a reminder of how idiotic and low thinking a small percentage of conservatives can be.

    I say yes.

    However, the jury in any criminal trial should be advised that cops are trained liars, and therefore their testimony in court should be duly suspect.

    I also think cops should not be able to wear their uniforms in court.

    Check my lean Ray. I'm Independent. The only reason that I asked the question was because I was watching a cop show earlier and thought that the question should be asked. It sure as hell isn't because "I hate the police so much". Because I don't.

    I don't think that's fair to the justice system. Cops are professionally trained in interrogation techniques. These techniques include lying to a suspect to gauge their reaction. What I could agree to would be that, if a cop has lied to someone on trial, that he be questioned about it:

    "Is it true you told the Defendant his DNA was found at the scene?" Yes.
    "Was his DNA found at the scene?" No.
    "Then you lied to the Defendant?" Yes.

    It is one method to try and get a uncooperative person to open up.
    With that said. LEO should answers questions truthfully once in court.

    That's already the law, it's called perjury. But if it is a cop they usually only get a slap on the wrist. Take Mark Furhman for example. He lied under oath in the OJ Simpson murder trial. He didn't do a single day in prison.

    I think that if a LEO is convicted of perjury then they should automatically receive the maximum sentence that the defendant was subject to.

    That would make them think twice about lying on the stand.
