"Police Officers Committing Perjury in Testimony About Consent Searches?"

Orin Kerr has this post at The Volokh Conspiracy discussing this "fascinating" recent Florida appellate court opinion raising concerns about the adequacy of judicial assessment of police testimony. From the opinion:

The judge may have punctiliously performed the duties of his office in this case, but, when considering the large number of “consent” cases that have come before us, the finding of “consent” in so many curious circumstances is a cause for concern.
