Yall forget that common sence is wrong. Someones feelings might be hurt if they are told that what they think is the crime of the century is nothing more than a nusance. Discression is what makes an officer effective along with common sence. Take those away and we end up with a faciest way of law enforcement. I would be the worst multiple offender if I were arrested for battling my siblings. Now we are very close. This situation would be different if they were say 17 or weapons were involved but this seems to be simple siblings being siblings.

Yeah, when decisions are dictated by liability, common sense takes a back seat.
There may have been things the news media aren't reporting, but the attack itself sure didn't deserve a Class A misdemeanor, because there appears to be zero injuries.

personally, if i do not feel someone should be arrested, im not going to make an arrest. if im ordered to arrest, i will refuse. some other guy can make the arrest in my place if a sgt wants it that bad, or the sgt can make it himself, and ill take the hit for refusing to obey a direct order.
would you be ok with putting this 10 year old kid in jail for fighting with her sister? i mean, think about it. every time you arrest someone, you take their freedom. you take the most basic human right this country was founded on. if this were to go to trial, odds are, nothing will happen in this case. but what if it did? what if a judge had a bad day and gave the kid 30 days and told her he hopes she learned her lesson? i am not ok with that, and i wont be the one putting that kid and that family in that situation.
we make so many arrests, that i think the magnitude of an actual physical arrest gets lost on us sometimes.in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.
the posts and opinions stated by me do not in any way reflect the values, beliefs, or views of my department. they are simply opinions and/or observations which have been developed through my personal experiences. hell, most of the stories probably arent even true...wink wink
