Sounds like Minority Report. Arrrrrrrrrrrr...............
Top some extent though, it sounds pretty smart too. Can't decide.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
As far as I can tell, the police had no legal, or constitutional authority to act and take this man into custody.
Sounds like they were just too lazy or cheap to put forth the man power to simply put him under surveillance if they had any concerns about his mental stability, and I'm not too sure they would have legal protection to place him under close surveillance without a legitimate complaint.
Oh, yeah, what if they did prevent a workplace shootout by a disgruntled employee? Yeah, no one wants to see a workplace shooting play out on TV or see truly innocent people injured or killed... But that is not the issue. The issue is it is likely unconstitutional what they did by making a preemptive arrest without probable cause.
Now I am not an attorney, let alone a constitutional attorney so I am willing to stand corrected if I am wrong.
But Rock and Glock has a good point. As of today, we are not living in Minority Report.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Its already being discussed, I'm closing this one.
And while I'm at it, the police do not make the decision to take one into protective custody; they simply take action once it becomes necessary.
