Busted by the Cop

So I was all set to regale you with tales direct from the mouth of one of DC's finest after a cop visited my CrimPro class yesterday.... And it was good, let me tell you. Some of the things he said would either blow your mind or confirm some of your worst suspicions and stereotypes. And I'd love to tell you about it, but I'm going to be an ass and keep it to myself. ;-) But really, it was fascinating, but “off the record,” which I guess means I can't say anything more about it. Is this blog part of “the record?”

That depends, are bloggers journalists? ;)

Yes, your blog is part of the record. I have a lot of friends in law enforcement, and yep, the ocurrence of just about every rights violation is the norm.

Did you agree to join this conspiracy of silence, or did he (or your professor) simply inform you that the conversation would be off-the-record? Do you really think you can be obligated to suppress the content of a conversation that takes place in a class you are required to attend? How do you feel about the idea that a police officer would refuse to tell you the truth about what he does on the job unless you promise not to repeat it?
