Can the police lie to me?

Yes.

 

The Supreme Court has said it is okay for the police to lie to you in the course of an investigation. That's a big WOW isn't it?

 

Does that mean the police can lie to me when they tell me that they have a confession from someone else and I've been implicated? Yes.

 

Does that mean the police can lie if they tell me they have a picture of me in a compromising criminal act? Yes.

 

Does that mean the police can lie if they tell me they have my fingerprints? Yes.

 

Gee, my Mom never lied to me like that.

 

The police are not your mother.
