Zero tolerance might be better.

But then again, it depends on who, or what, you are tolerating.
The warrant should have been laughed at and quickly filed in the trash bin. We should not tolerate law enforcement ignoring laws, such as statute of limitations on a misdemeanor.

No, it would be worse, because a customer "rents" videos, and does not "rance" them.

You people are pathetic. Completely clueless.

The Statute of Limitations for Arrest Warrants thumbnail
Arrest warrants never expire unless revoked by a judge

Most people are familiar with the legal idea of a statute of limitations, which states that you can no longer be tried for a crime after a certain amount of time has elapsed. However, if you have an outstanding arrest warrant there is no statute of limitations for enforcing that warrant.

no because sometimes warrants National Police networks ... so that she will not be arrested again in another location... but you can also have past records expunged

And yet, knowing this, the police decide to harass someone anyway? What is the sense in that?
It is a waste of time, money and resources.

As soon as the statute limitation for prosecution is reached, the warrant needs to become null and void.

Not looking to hang out any shingles, I am smarter than that. I use common sense.
Something our justice system is sorely lacking.

Do you know if that law is common in every state?

It's not a matter of whether you or someone else likes a particular pun.

It's a matter of whether the hectoring cretin even realized one was taking place.

The complainer did not say, "I hate puns." The complainer, as usual around here, corrected the spelling.

I understand what you are saying, I still disagree with a warrant not having an ending time.

If it had been a car I wouldn't have said misdemeanor. And any statute that has run its course no longer needs a warrant, no matter the original charge. No arrest is necessary on an outdated warrant.

I was not aware she had been arrested on other charges. That does not, however, negate the waste of time and resources spent to process the warrant.

Perhaps the video was just overlooked or forgotten about and not stolen.

do you understand what a warrant is... an order of a court which authorizes a law enforcement officer to arrest and bring a person before the judge.

doesn't mean you have been charged

that your right to be wrong

here is the best idea yet you have it your way ..

Outstanding Warrant

An order that has not yet been carried out; an order for which the action commanded has not been taken.

When the action ordered has been done, the warrant is said to have been executed

Yes you have pointed out my error in my original statement.
I accept that.

My argument is, I believe to use a warrant, that will have no judicial outcome, is senseless.
Doesn't matter the value of the item stolen. If the statute has been reached, the warrant also needs to go away and no arrests made for that warrant.

There is no statute on murder. It will follow you for life. Theft and murder are not comparable.
Are you of the mind that all warrants and all crimes should follow you for life?

I do not insist she is innocent or guilty of anything, only offered up other possibilities. That would have been for the court to decide had she been arrested before the statute ran its course.

Orders can be rescinded. They are not carved in stone nor written in blood.
