This should really go in Okie's Corral, both for entertainment and to educate the nut fringe, but you know how sensitive Glock Talk is - what if there's controversy? Anyhow, I was just watching an episode of Dexter (bootleg DVDs of 7 seasons for $27, here in Afghanistan). A scene came up with the standard movie/TV cop show thing: "you can't arrest me" - "we can take you in for questioning" - "yes, but only for a day". I have brought this up several times in threads about stupid things people believe about the police, but I decided to search on google and see how this was being discussed in the rest of the world. It's not mentioned that I can find. Even on a blog article about stupid things people believe about the police because they saw it on TV, it wasn't mentioned. When I was an officer, I even had a lieutenant who used to do it - he worded his requests in such a way that he never told a person they had to come, but he implied it and let television do the rest. They always came ("voluntarily"). Is this the most widely believe, TV-inspired, legal misconception in America?
