and why is it still legal for adults?
this happens because cops are more worried about arrests at any cost than they are police work.
ive had to go to court before on a misdemeanor and the reports were just fraught with lies from big to small. The judge knows they do this but doesnt care and doesnt hold them accountable.
edit: another thing you see all the time in the same circle are DA’s or prosecutors that use the phrase: I cant believe it, your honor, in all my career, this is the most
its like they have to memorize that from mad-libs to get the job. you see it in documentaries and you see it in courts consistently. Everything is overblown with hyperbole, nothing is done on the level.
