Police Trickery

Here's why even innocent people accused of a crime shouldn't talk to police: Cops can try to trick innocent people into a convction. According to this article, the Duke rape police seem concerned that some of the lacrosse players have rock-solid alibis during the party: they weren't there. They defense attorneys believe that the accuser is pretty much guessing who to finger as her assailants. What if she fingers somebody who wasn't there? That would be yet another reason to doubt her story.

Did you guys know that unlike any other crime, rape cases qualify police departments for federal funds? Think about that for a minute...
