Questions for Cops

Tomorrow (March 22) a police officer will attend my crimpro class and Prof. CrimPro has promised we can ask Officer Friendly whatever we want and he will give an honest answer. So what do you want to know about cops? What have you always wanted to ask a cop but were afraid to ask? Post your questions in the comments ASAP and I'll try to ask all of them that come in before 11 a.m.

Ask the cop why they always find exculpatory reports in the middle of trial or after trial and "just forget to turn them over".

1)After they shoot the tazer and the wires are extended, how do they get them back into the device?

What is the correct response to a cop's boldfaced lie? Like say (hypothetically) you are pulled over at 0100h. and searched and dogs are sniffing the car and he says, "I can tell you've been smoking pot... you can admit it," but in fact you are 100% clean. Or maybe you were speeding just a little but he says, "I saw you swerving in and out of traffic going 30mph over the limit," and you honestly weren't?

(FYI in the 1st case I denied everything and they didn't find any drugs so they were okay with that. In the 2nd place he wouldn't take "no" for an answer but once I shut up he let me off with a "warning.")
