Can't agree with this at all, sorry.I disagree. When you call the police you may be incriminating yourself. They may arrive and arrest you for something you did or inadvertently admitted to while you were trying your best to do the right thing. You may also cause a person you intended to help to go to jail. That lady you could have taken safely home but instead you called the police? Well they determined she was high on an illegal narcotic and had a felony quantity in her purse.
In a domestic violence call, in many states the police are obligated by law to arrest someone.
I rarely dial 911 except to report fires.
However, he COULD have been arrested if she freaked out at some point and claimed she was being abducted.
Obligated to arrest someone?? Absolutely incorrect. In this case he would have not only helped this woman but could have also prevented this guy from doing the same thing again.
