In my line of work, I deal with police officers from all over the Valley on a daily basis. To some people, this may seem interesting, and I am often asked the question whether police officers lie. Unfortunately, the answer is yes. After years of practicing criminal law, I have become jaded by how prevalent dishonesty is within the law enforcement community. As a child of the 1980's, I was raised to believe that cops were honest people, always to be trusted in times of need, and if I ever needed help I should always seek one out. It is a sad concept to me that I won't be giving the same advice to my daughter as she grows up. In three separate court hearings this week alone, the Rosenstein Law Group has been able to prove that certain police officers were not telling the truth under oath. The conundrum of this situation is that while this deceit bodes badly for society as a whole, this dishonesty was actually favorable here for our clients; we forcefully argued that catching officers in a lie under oath discredits the entire investigation. The sad reality is that far more often we are unable to prove the officers were lying, because there is no objective evidence contradicting these falsehoods, just our client's word.
