    If I accused you of raping a 5 year old girl would that make it true?

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

    First and foremost. These are two separate things. Two wrongs do not make a right. Period.

    I hope if he's guilty of doing what he's accused of, that he gets the full punishment he deserves. But, do you know for sure that he is in fact guilty? No you don't, and neither do I. To arrest her, they had to falsely accuse her of something, so what's to say he's not falsely accused? Since when is an accusation, a guilty verdict? What happened to a trial first?
    You can have good intentions and not be right.

    "Slaton Police Department will issue an apology as long as the mother agrees not to file a lawsuit."

    Oh... so they're only sorry, if she doesn't sue them? But if she sues them, they're not sorry they did it? She better sue, because obviously they haven't learned anything from this. And they're not actually sorry.

    If the kid is guilty or not, there is no reason to violate her constitutional rights! Some small town cops think they can get away with whatever they think is right. Slaton PD NEEDS to learn they must obey the laws just like us lowly subj...uh..citizens!

    Ok ill bite.

    Police dont need a search warrent to pick someone up for questioning. What they need is probable cause, which is defined as the mere facts and circumstances that would lead a man of prudence and caution to believe that a crime has been or is being committed.

    If she would not allow this to happen she can be guilty of: impeding a lawful investigation, harboring a fugitive, or just plain old disorderly conduct. Which of these would obviously depend on the circumstances. And being that I was not there I dont know which one would apply.

    Being that she knew the cops were on their way, this wasn't some cops being the gestapo.

    There you have it, someone to play devils advocate for you.

    If the department issued a formal apology it could hurt them in court as it could be sign of admitting wrongdoing. So why would they risk losing a lawsuit?

    Yet again, I am playing devils advocate to make axe45 happy.

    Im starting to think that axe45 and gecko45 are related....

    Nope, but it would probably get him placed under investigative detention if you filled out a police report stating that you saw it happen or were the girls guardian.

    About the same as taking a womans side against the police after hearing only her side, isnt it??
