3. You really don't think DU is capable of producing more extreme reactions?

I do think this is the kind of behavior that should allow any police testimony to be thrown out. If people are sexually involved, how can we possibly trust their testimony to be objective and reliable? It's the basis for disallowing spousal testimony. The "undercover" (ha! get it?) cop might fib to hid evidence of a lover's misdeeds, or might throw the light of suspicion on a third party to protect a paramour, or might be vindictive toward an angry ex and trump up charges out of spite, or at the very least might demonstrate a cavalier, dehumanizing, and dishonorable regard for his/her sexual conquests that discredits the officer's worth as a witness.

I'm not a lawyer, but I'll bet a good trial attorney could gin up half a dozen other arguments as to why cops shtupping suspects and witnesses is a horrible idea that fatally jeopardizes the evidence gathered in the course of an investigation.
