Can it tell me if the person I'm chatting with is actually a teenage girl or a cop?

Just ask them.  If they say they are a teenage girl -- they're a cop.  If they say they are a cop -- they're a cop.

Interesting. I was reading this article in class when all of a sudden some guy in a military uniform jumped up and punched my professor. I think he said something about God?
