63. NPR yesterday...
"Talk of the Nation" did a story on appropriate standards for investigators to use in solving a case. They talked at length about ethical and legal issues on topics like lying to suspects to get confessions and interrogation strategy. You know what they came up, what they in the end decided was the most prudent coarse of action?

They said that it is and should be up to individuals, to decide how far to take unethical or questionable tactics to solve a case. It should be up to each investigator to decide the "line in the sand" to not cross when doing their job.

Guess what else? THAT IS FUCKING BULLSHIT! Are we not a country of laws? That line in the sand should be painted in florescent hotpink by our society with LAW. That line in the sand should be fucking legislated. Standards and procedures and acceptable tactics should be legislated. They talked about the issue of how important it is that investigators have the ability and freedom to be creative to solve a case. Well, be creative, within law mandated bounds, clear to all of US law enforcement.

I can't believe this shit!
