Ha, excellent. This was a while ago, did they ever get them back?

Are you still allowed to let a criminal off with no charge?

Skywolf the Scribbler: Are you still allowed to let a criminal off with no charge?


I had my wallet stolen a few years ago and one of the questions the police officer asked me was whether or not I would press charges, so I guess so.

Also, I would hope they don't just walk up during business hours and say "I stole these..." At least use the "my friend asked me to return these for him, please call off your dogs" cover.

/Dumber things have happened though.

Depends on the jurisdiction. In most cases, it's technically "The state" or "The people of the state" that are the plaintiffs, but prosecution is difficult without a cooperating victim.

Don't know about Canada, but in the US, it is generally illegal to offer to not report a crime if the criminal does some action.  It has something do with it being possible extortion even if you are the victim of the original crime.

So you can't say "return the money or I will call the police," or  "if you return the money, I will not call the police," but you can say "return the money, and I will have no reason to call the police."

I didn't pass my GED in law, so someone may be able to explain this better.

Ten Grand would pay for a lot of stitches.

/and in Canada, the stitches would be free anyway

My thought exactly. That dealer was poppin' tags.

LIKE A BOSS!

They rocked that perfectly

I think whether or not you get to press charges depends really on the crime/$$$ attached to said crime. FOr a wallet with 100$, yeah you could get away with being asked about it and declining.

5000$ on the other hand, I am pretty sure the cops would just take over regardless of it being returned and the whatnot.

It also depends on how big a dick the cop is and if he wants an easy bust to bring up his high score for the month

This is how a kid who visits reddit.com reacts to the internet.

God... It's Alberta. Are we sure the items didn't just head south on their own?

Did the dealer politely pour maple syrup and poutine on the perpetrator?

I have tried to use reddit, but it is awful to the point of uselessness. So if a link from reddit makes its way onto Fark, I don't mind.  Saves me the agony of navigating through a chaotic unorganized wall of links.

Awesome ad.  Hope it works!

Yeah, it generally doesn't go over well politically when you need to threaten the victim with charges to force them to cooperate. Unless a serious crime was committed, the police are likely to respect the wishes of the victim, even if they don't need to.

It is an offense to ask for the return of a missing thing "with no questions asked".

Hope reddit doesn't do this.

Thanks for digging that up, my Google Fu was too weak to find it.
