I might have alzheimers, but I have to say this again because it kills me that people are so stupid. I have tricked people into admitting they have drugs on them by turning my pager off and then telling them that the pager is a drug detection device. I run it over their body, and then turn it on and it makes a beep. I then inform them that my detection device has indicated that there are drugs on the person.

The two times I have tried it, the person started crying and just told me where the drugs were. Of course, I only do it if I have enough probable cause to search them and their surroundings, anyway, but it makes me laugh that they fall for it. And, yes, it is legal for me to lie to them. And why not, they lie to me all the time, and unless it is about their identity, I can't do a thing about it. Turnabout is fair play?

Reminds me of a scripture I read the other day...

D&C 10:25-27

25 Yea, he saith unto them: Deceive and lie in wait to catch, that ye may destroy; behold, this is no harm. And thus he flattereth them, and telleth them that it is no sin to lie that they may catch a man in a lie, that they may destroy him.
26 And thus he flattereth them, and leadeth them along until he draggeth their souls down to hell; and thus he causeth them to catch themselves in their own csnare.
27 And thus he goeth up and down, to and fro in the earth, seeking to destroy the souls of men.

However, I it was referring to men who stole the first 116 pages of the Book of Mormon translation and planned on having Joseph Smith translate it again to see if it would be the same, and if it weren't the same, they could say he was a liar--and if it were the same, they were going to change it and say that it wasn't translated the same...I don't think it applies to police work unless you go to extremes... :)
