19. The assumption that all cops are well meaning and thorough is wrong.
Many cops are quick to decide who they think is a bad guy, and once they believe that, they line up everything to fit that. They know how to draft a report to make a case they can't really make with the real facts. That fiasco with the Harvard professor is a good example of what many cops do every day in America. They make arrests because they know "you can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride."

Sometimes they'll lie and tell you something to get you to agree with them, or give them info, or give them info on someone else.
