Getting arrested is part of getting processed into the criminal justice system, getting fingerprinted, photographed, and the rest. There has been found to be Probable Cause he committed a serious felony.
Murphy needs to therefore be arraigned in front of a judge to decide whether he meets the criteria of being bonded out, etc.
So, in other words, this IS proper procedure. Murphy should NOT be given special treatment because of his status.
And, to state the obvious -- you do not know what the hell you are talking about.
See you don't know what you are talking about. What do you think the criminal summons is for? Obviously you have no idea.
The criminal ummons is a notice of judicial process. It is notifying the person that they are being summoned to answer to whatever charges have been filed.
The criminal process begins with either an information, complaint, or indictment.
They have an indictment so now the prosecutors issue a summons to notfiy the person, in this case Murphy, that an indictment has been found and that he needs to answer to the charges.
Now he can choose to waive the arraignment or appear and enter a plea. If he fails to do either then the court can issue a warrant for failure to appear.
What you fail to understand is he knew of the grand jury proceeding and obviously responded to the initial accusation. Doing so notifies the court that he is aware of the charges before him and the court knows that he is willing to answer to those charges this beingthe case no arrest is needed.
If he were trying to flee or not answer the charge then they would have him arrested.
You might want to take the time you have and go to a law library and read.
Arrests are made either in hte presence on the commission of a crime. Arrests are made when the police or prosecutors have reason to believe the accused may take flight or is a threat to a victim or others. Arrests are made by police when they suspect a person of a crime and hold them until strong proof/evidence is found to substantiate a formal charge. Once the formal charge is made the person may be released or after a preliminary hearing is dismissed or held over.
Either way in this specific case an arrest is not necesary though I will find it comical that he has to submit a DNA sample for a felony arrest.
