Can Cops Lie?

There is a popular misconception that since police are enforcers of the law, that they are obligated to inform you of the law and answer any questions truthfully pertaining to it. This is false. Police officers are under no obligation to explain the law to potential suspects, and as a matter of fact it has been legally ruled that it is each private citizen's individual responsibility and duty to educate him or herself on the law. As a result, law enforcement possess a constellation of techniques that they can use to elicit information from suspects that can potentially secure a conviction. These include the threat of adverse consequences if one chooses to wait to speak to a lawyer. ​
