This firm has a 5 year partnership track, which means you'd be making half a million after 5 years instead of 8.  Would you take this job even if you didn't like the city?

Kingoftorts, you are preaching to the choir.  I know cops can and do lie, I just didn't know it was legal. 

this is one of the first things they teach in criminal law.  i'm here to enlighten the masses.

"Young begins by identifying various types of lies used by the police.  Police officers lie about the strength of the case (a co-defendant has confessed, a witness saw them commit the crime, falsely assert that fingerprints exist), fabricate evidence (make false photographs of crime scenes), lie abut culpability (claim that the victim ?deserved? the crime or that the defendant will receive a reduced sentence), and police can lie about the circumstances of the interrogation (impersonate an interrogator or record conversations between suspects).  The cases that Young cites are often shocking, such as a confession that was found valid after police bought a knife, created a bloody fingerprint on it, photographed it, and used the fabricated photo to convince the defendant that his fingerprint had been identified.  Other interrogations upheld by various courts are equally as startling."

"Taping interrogations can also protect police from false accusations of abuse and coercion, Ryan said. "Courts have already ruled police can lie, as long as I am not using any force on the suspect it's OK," he said. "
