    An arrest, on the other hand, involves the police taking someone into custody through a more significant restraint on movement. The quintessential example involves the use of handcuffs and an advisement that the suspect is under arrest.

    Not only were they cuffed, the police cruiser had been crashed into their fender to prevent the care from leaving, and a rifle was pointed at them.
    I'll be happy to look at the actual report, Jim. Link, please?

    But again, according to you, Police can do that sort of thing any time they want.
    No, sir - that's your own irrational and emotional false conclusion. I simply do not trust your version of things, Jim.

      You're taking their (and their lawyer's) word for it that there was no reason. Maybe they're right, but I also know it's very rare for someone to walk away from a police encounter saying, "Yeah, I totally deserved that," so I'm not inclined to assume they're necessarily telling the truth, either. As a (supposed) lover of truth, you should wait for the facts from both sides before reaching a conclusion.

        Was there a link to this, MM? And, yes, the lawyer is always going to express the situation in the most horrifying terms in defense of his/her clients.

          'your version of accounts'?

          Amazing. I gave 5 links to separate articles reporting on the event. And you are clearly too lazy to even read one of them.

              Indeed - even with all this those in power have not learned their lesson. Consider:

              https://www.thecut.com/2020/08/secre...h-a-rifle.html

              https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-brief...them-separated

              https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...988_story.html

              https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/tw...id/ar-BB17wCbg

              https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...near-Mall.html

              They were held at gunpoint, they were never mirandized, this happened in front of their small children, and the cars were searched without probable cause. There was nothing here except two women out to let their kids play in the fountain on the mall.
              OK, five accounts (one of them had a paywall, but I'm assuming it's the same) of the same event, and I don't know "the rest of the story".

              I'll withhold comment til more facts come to light, if that's OK.

                Let's see. I told what was in the articles, and if you doubted my reporting of their contents I gave you five links as references should you wish to clarify. And you still are trying to make this my fault. .... hmmm.

                  Yes, and I read them --- pretty much 5 repeats of the same story, same quotes... like they all read off a wire service. And only one side.

                  And you still are trying to make this my fault. .... hmmm.
                  Your fault? So, now you're gonna do the persecution complex thing.

                        It's where you go, Jim. I never said ANYTHING was your fault. Sheeeeesh, you're like an emotional roller coaster.

                          I can't help it if you are stupid CP. But your desire to try to attack me rather than deal with the issues made you a fool tonight. That is what hate does to all of her disciples.

                          Hint. My comment had nothing to do with feeling persecuted. It had to do with your own hypocrisy.
