Arkansas Sets 30-minute Statute of Limitations for Crimes Committed by Police
September 12, 2013, 2:55 pm
Seriously, I am not joking. The Arkansas State Police apparently reserve the right not to consider any complaints of police brutality or mis-use of force if they are not filed within a half hour of the incident:

The killing led to a town hall meeting Monday, and the city prosecutor, Kyle Hunter, was assigned to investigate, saying his job was to determine whether the actions were justified. Hunter requested an investigation by the state police, who were not called in following the killing of the 107-year-old Isadore, but, theArkansas Times reports, state police declined Hunter’s request:

With the lapse in time, [Arkansas State Police’s Bill] Sadler said, the crime scene has been compromised, the local law enforcement agency (the Pine Bluff PD) has already processed the evidence, and the witnesses were (long since) no longer sequestered. “It’s a credibility issue and a forensic issue,” he said.

“APB routinely responds to those requests when they come in in a timely matter,” he said. He said that requests typically come within 30 to 40 minutes after deadly force was used. Sadler said that there was no law or protocol requiring local authorities to call in the state police in a situation in which an officer uses deadly force. “That is the choice of the local jurisdiction,” he said. If called, they could have arrived within half an hour, he said. “We would have immediately responded.”
Twice yesterday your pee on patrol unit or little baby face kid stopped in front of my place, just know he wanted to drive in and try something, but was too scared I suppose? After conning people as well as writtering false citations that were illegal in the first place. you scum buckets are so funny that your able to make up your own circus and make a lot.
