-- But yes, I think that asking a police detective if he thought the person he was investigating was being truthful or lying is a legit question. --

It's not. Cases are mistried on this sort of error at trial.

Jackson v. State, 107 So.3d 328 (Fla 2012) HN 3 and 4

Alright that is fair enough. I am certainly not a lawyer and am just saying my personal preference on the matter, and I do appreciate the information you have provided on this.

I am also of the mind that this entire case has been a mistrial since the moment charges were filed.
