It's not just Kansas
I have posted before (here) regarding the fact that although the KSC has a lot of critics regarding its prosecutorial misconduct jurisprudence, it is really not out of step. The Criminal Law Reporter had a blurb about Liggett v. People, where the Colorado Supreme Court categorically indicated that it is inappropriate to ask one witness whether another witness is lying or even mistaken. As often occurs in Kansas appellate courts, the Colorado court held the error harmless, but made it crystal clear that such tactics are improper.
