In many states (not sure about LA), if the police are called out on a domestic abuse call they are required to make an arrest, even with little or no evidence. This policy is meant to diffuse the situation before it escalates any further.

Many women take advantage of this, as saintfan has pointed out in previous posts. Unfortunately, it is part of many a divorcing woman's playbook to erroneously make domestic dispute calls in an effort to have their spouses arrested. Mine tried it a few times until I convinced the arresting officers that seeing as how there were no signs of an altercation and she was the one making the calls that maybe she should be the one taken into custody. Worked out well, never had another incident after that, .

Doesn't seem like that's the case with JG's situation though, .

Love ya Slo but I'm sorry I have to intervene here.

First off there is not a requirement by police departments to make an arrest on a domestic with "little or no evidence".

That's illegal.

And if you guys have dumb enough cops in your portion of country that do that (not saying you don't), then they won't be cops for very long.

God, maybe I should just avoid these conversations. This is getting ridiculous. Like the guy who tells everyone he got pulled over for going 1 mph over the speed limit and got "screwed" by getting a DUI.

Look, I know there are some messed up cops out there. But they are rare. And just because you dealt with a piece of **** doesn't mean most of them are. The piece of **** you dealt with is the minority, not the majority.

Most officers do what we do to help and to take care of people. Most officers would take a bullet for you.

Don't believe it? Go for a ride-a-long one day.

Re: Junior Galette Arrested

And we're back...

Now, with regards to Junior Galette, these are issues, questions I have:

First, does this woman have an alias? (i.e. Sweet Pea? You, doing a world tour?)

Second, Junior was made a "team captain" and I keep wondering, was this a similar move to what the US Post Office does with employees who are problem children that they make them 'supervisors'?

Third, it occurs to me that Galette's 'advisors' will earn more per hour than Warren Buffet gets for one of his power lunches in the 48 hours postpartyum...

Fourth, talk about Rodney Dangerfield not getting any respect, Galette's arrest was the last news bullet on the NFL page on CBSSports.com, I'd like to know if Junior feels disrespected?!?

Finally, regardless of roster bonus and guarantees as nothing is truly ever guaranteed other than death and taxes, could there be some moral contractual clause, commissioner action that would void remaining money, salary cap commitment to JG?

If so, I'll pay the *****'s cab fare! Hell, I'll buy her an Applebee's steak & Air Fare back to Baltimore!

Knowing Goodell, this time he'll **** us even more and leaves us to our own devices and stuck with Loomis' mistake!!!

Wish he had shown some of that aggression on the field this season.

That is actually true! Good point, too.

My ex before my most recent ex once slapped me across the face for calling her the dreaded C word. I know I shouldn't have, but I digress. After the slap her body postured like another may be on the way. I immediately informed her that if she hit me again I would call the police. With that she replied "Go ahead, I'll just tell them you hit me, who do you think they'll believe?"

I thought about that and concluded she had a good point, lol. True story, too.

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Jnorm, I love ya, but in some areas it is in fact their policy. May be unspoken, but it is. Don't ever kid yourself, homie. The laws, the family courts, etc are all stacked against men. At least right now. There is a slow of the pendulum, and she'll make her way back toward the center eventually, but currently this is a woman's world, lmao!

Re: Junior Galette Arrested

Well, that's how it was explained to me by the Honolulu PD, the Detroit PD & the Wayne County Sheriff's Depts, respectively. It may not be the same all over, which I mentioned, but be assured, it is a policy in some locations/depts. in my experience. #shrug.

I don't want to get into the whole cop debate thing but being educated in the criminal justice system it is indeed policy for some localities to make an arrest regarding domestic violence. The only evidence required being an accusation from one party involved. Not every state holds these standards, and this is somewhat new due to cops rarely making arrests and later being called back to make an arrest for murder.

On the subject of JR, I could go either way. Unfortunately it seems like he has the maturity of a 12 year old. My only hope is we can get something done with his contract, because this could result in a 6 game suspension.
