A warrant for arrest had been issued in response to two unpaid parking violations from 2013.
Handcuffs should always be used when making an arrest, and while transporting prisoners.
that was the statement from the college.
the cops said she was driving with a suspended license and had a warrant for the unpaid ticket.
if anything- i'd question why arrest warrants are issued for one unpaid parking ticket.
What penalty do you suggest for failure to respond to a formal accusation of a violation of the law (parking ticket or not, it is a formal accusation of a violation of the law by a law enforcement officer - you know - the people sworn to enforce the laws that other people write). Failure to respond to a formal accusation of a violation is a crime itself in many jurisdictions, commonly contempt of court to boot!
Plus, the officers didn't issue a warrant (they can't), the court did (the court can and will, typically after numerous formal notices and warnings to the accused). Once the warrant is issued, the officers are obligated to serve the warrant when they come into contact with the individual
Of course handcuffs...there is no "nearly arrested", or "arrest lite"...there is 'not under arrest', and 'under arrest'. The reasons people are handcuffed when under arrest are both for the safety of the officer(s) AND the safety of the arrestee.
A subdued, restrained arrestee is less likely to be able to hurt the officer(s) or themselves. A policy of handcuffing all arrestees removes the stigma of handcuffing some and not others (e.g., handcuffing all blacks but not whites, 'cuffing males but not females, etc...).
Aren't the officers supposed to do their job?
I don't get the cuffs either. Why do they cuff non violent people? Just because they can? Makes no sense.
Yes, I was pulled over for a headlight out then cuffed and spent a night in jail for an unpaid traffic ticket that I had blown off. So what, I let them have me, no harm done. I later caught a bus to the court house where everything was dropped and I paid a court fee to clear it all up (It wound up costing less than the original unpaid ticket, go figure). They didn’t waste their time on me, I wasted their time by blowing off the ticket making a bunch of extra work for everyone else. I learned to be at least a little more diligent about taking care of business. My bad.

Two great men of exceptional character…
they are both as dignified when they lose, as they are when they win….
The only way to win with trump is if he looses. He will not get my vote even at gunpoint.
You’re a good man All. However keep in mind that is like herding cats. (:
Depends what you call "awesome" I suppose... I would have a hard time voting for anyone other than Trump. I want to break the political game or accept the fruits of our failures. Either was we need to move forward.
IS THIS PRESIDENTIAL?
Trump has divided us pretty heavily and now Ruino is attacking (w/o truth) which will further divide us. Mostly because no one does their homework.
Can you say specifically you see about trump NOT being a progressive?
I won't vote for amnesty.
We are coming and we are bringing Hell with us. Wyatt Earp, Tombstone. PC prepare to be destroyed. Moochers, it's over. Looters are going crazy. How can this happen. How can they be threatening our "phony baloney jobs." (Blazing Saddles) Lets vote those aholes into the private sector and obamacare.
