Like OJ,,,yeah he's innocent???? I arrested a DWI some years back that was found not guilty when he were clearly intox and blew over the limit. I was told by the DA that the jury stated in the after trial interview that they thought he was drunk,,,just not drunk enough. So the publics perseption of drunk must be falling down drunk. The statue doesn't say falling down drunk!!!!
So yes, he was guilty,,,but a group of nuckle heads thought otherwise and let him walk.
I personally don't care anymore,,it's not the police departments job to convict the person,,,,we only have to have probable cause to make the arrest and collect the evidence. It's the DA that has to compile the reports and collected evidence and make the case.
And again,,I've processed police applicants,,,if they've been arrested for a class B or above I will not put you through. When you apply you will fill out a form asking if you have ever been arrested. As far as "expunged" there are ways I will find out if you've ever been arrested so don't tell me what I can and can't find!
