When, if ever, is it appropriate for the police to lie to members of the American People about their constitutional rights, mislead them about the rights' content, fail to mention them at all, or discourage their exercise? This paper seeks to answer that question by drawing on the philosophical literature on the nature and social value (or harm) of bullshit and on psychological research relevant to the same concept to craft what is ultimate a political position on the question.
