Re: St-Louis Arrest Discussion Thread they didn't decline to arrest him. they didn't have the right. having not witnessed the assault directly, they can only detain him based on HT's allegation. that detention period has a time limit which has long since passed thanks to his fellow $cilons' obstruction of justice. all they could do at this point was take his info and kick it back to the detective who will then make a recommendation to a city prosecutor who will then determine whether or not to pursue charges, at which point a judge will be consulted to issue an arrest warrant. yeah, crap, but that's the price you pay for due process.
