    On the show "Homicide", there was a great episode where the documentary filmmaker is interviewing all the cops, and Pembleton says something like "you see what it says on the door? 'HOMICIDE'. We're not here to help you. We're here to put you away for something."

    On that note, it's a bit surprising that, after twenty years of Law and Order and CSI, people aren't more saavy about being questioned by the police. It seems painfully obvious that they'll use a variety of tricks to get an incriminating statement out of you. My favourite episodes are the ones where the cops go wrong by their own devices and screw someone innocent–those should be required viewing in civics classes.
