I do know the law. You're the one that doesn't, and I have proven you wrong. Move on to your next argument, it is clear you're not right on this one.

Wanna do away with the 1st and 2nd Amendements too? That'll make it easier to kill the 4th and 5th that way.

You've proved nothing. I didn't know about the 48 hour thing. With regards to the rest of the original topic... Well, study up on your rights.

Hey dumb dumb the whole detainment was 95% of your argument ... Which you were wrong about. He was stopped because he looked suspicious and detained for questioning.( which is legal) Even IF he didn't spill his guts about why he had the TV, the burglary call came in WHILE he was at the station SO ... He would have been busted either way. You're proving yourself to be as big of an idiot as the dude with the TV.

Sorry, go back to the first page and read it again. Had this criminal not said a word upon questioning i doubt they could just start locking people up for days without charges. If you were paying attention and not taking the topic off course my original question was what would they charge him with if he said nothing? They would have to let him go in 48 hours with his shiny new tv. Provided the phone call didn't come in. Carrying a tv down the street isn't illegal. For all we know he could of been heading to the pawn shop to sell it so he could buy baby formula.
But I guess you're the type to already have the guy pegged as guilty and sentence him to prison without a fair trail.

If it was your tv and jewelry stolen you wouldn't be asking these questions.

And if he's ballsy enough to break into someone's house he would just steal the formula from the store if that were the case.

Someone reported a robbery of their home! The cops were looking for the thief! They saw this male with the TV on his bike. Of COURSE they had the right to stop him!

Are you retarded? Or can you not read?

"According to police, around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, an officer on patrol noticed a man on a bicycle riding down Oneida Street with a flat-screen television propped on the handlebars. The officer stopped to speak with the man and learned he was also in possession of several sets of commemorative coins, as well as other items.
The man was transported to the police station to speak with investigators. DURING THAT TIME, a resident on Ferris Avenue called police to report a home burglary. In addition to the coins and television, the man was also found to be in possession of remote controls, power cords, a DVD player, a TV wall mount, headphones, jewelry, wrench and a watch. All of these items were found to be missing from the Ferris Avenue home, officials say."

He was spotted, stopped, and questioned THEN the home owners reported the robbery while he was already in custody. That is titanium's point

Unless you actually know what happened then yes I may be wrong. But I'm going by what the newspaper said, and I'm not wrong about that. But if I am wrong and that isn't how the events went then I guess titanium have no reason to be mad.

Do you think a man riding a bike with a TV on the handlebars is suspicious looking? I do.

Yes. If I seen someone with a TV on their handlebars I would say it looks suspicious. However I do understand the point of the argument also. They had no real reason to stop him but then again it is their duty to investigate suspicious activity.

Exactly! It is their job to investigate suspicious activity. That is ALL the reason they need to stop him and ask him what he was doing with a TV on his handlebars. If he doesn't know his own rights as a citizen, that's his fault. But, then again he knew he was busted in the act so, why lie about it.

Believe me I agree. And I like that the cops did that because if it were my belongings and a cop didn't do it I would be upset.
