I have always been fascinated by the statement that in the United States, police are allowed to lie to you about whatever they want in order to get a confession.
This statement is usually made to strongly recommend you invoke your right to silence and only talk to a lawyer.
Now, suppose a person being interrogated by police invokes his right to silence and counsel, requests a lawyer, and after a while somebody appears saying he is a lawyer, but in fact he is another police interrogator who will use the suspect's statements as evidence against them.
This seems obviously illegal, but that would mean that police can't really lie about anything they want. Does this mean that there are limits to what police can lie about?
