See Something, Say Something: How a Community Stopped a Potential School Shooting

Editor’s note: Even though there was no crime committed, we chose to not disclose the subject’s name due to his disturbing behavior.

When Is The Right Time To Begin A Wrongful Arrest Investigation?

In general, the police are very careful and well equipped with the knowledge required to determine when to make an official arrest. But, unfortunately, there are always exceptions. A wrongful arrest can happen for any number of reasons–mistaken identity, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, an over zealous police officer, or even–rarely– intentionally due to malice.
