"If you have a child, a nephew, can you even imagine this happening to them?"

Maybe.... what race is my child or nephew?

I am completely outraged the interrogation lasted 5 hours. One quick look at him confirms that he's guilty.

That's just wrong, any seasoned interrogator would have broke out the waterboarding long before that.

There is no such thing as a plea of innocence in my court. A plea of innocence is guilty of wasting my time.

rogue_L_chick: WTF did they tell the mom for 5 hours?? She says she heard him crying, in handcuffs - so she was there? I don't want to get all Internet Toughie here, but I can't imagine not being able to get him out of there. If Idiot #1 doesn't cough up the key to the cuffs, then I would be off to find #2. Think about it, enough time stating the situation, to enough people in a police station, someone will agree that interrogating a 7 year old without counsel for 10 hours for $5 is not a good thing. Hell, you could have a lawyer there in 30 minutes, I'm sure. This time thing is really driving me nuts.

I'm also amazed they wanted to keep him that long. I'm pretty sure they would have tossed my kid within 2 hours. At 7, he talked about nothing but Pokemon to anyone who would sit still. After the 50th "you know what a squirtle's revoloution is? I'll tell you..." they'd turn him loose.


Probably the mom thought he was in school, called the district, found out, and was waiting outside until they gave him back, in handcuffs. And he was probably too busy crying to say anything, unfortunately--I wish these numbnuts had gotten the full hyperactive-kid treatment.

/The kid is  seven. You sit with them for five minutes, let them play with a flashlight, listen to the Pokemon stories, and ask "you're not in trouble, but did you take the money? OK, can you empty your pockets? Thanks, have a cookie, go have fun today".
//Seriously, WHY is someone who doesn't know the above working in a FARKING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL?
