[quote="Anonymous"]Now why don't you remove the arrest from his record at the expense of the department?[/quote]
EXACTLY. This is the most offensive thing about the so called "justice system" in Florida; you cannot get un-arrested, and due to the "sunshine laws", your records are more accessible to the public than in any other state. The cost of a criminal attorney/expungement/mugshot removal alone burns thousands of dollars at a minimum, never mind the tertiary effects which are far more difficult to overcome than the initial financial burdens. This is what snide cops mean when they say "you might beat the time, but you won't beat the ride" -- disgusting, unprofessional, unjust, and most importantly, unconstitutional.
To answer your question directly: [i][b]Because "they" (meaning the corrupt farce that has been the justice system for a while now) have, and continue to, reap massive personal profit and undeserved rewards from his arrest, and the barbaric, continual shaming of him for it. Welcome to the "NEW INQUISITION". Got Sadism?
