Wrong person

269 Hits

This next bit is not funny. A man was wrongly taken to the Police station, mistaken for one of the escaped prisoners.

The wrong man apparently has multiple tattoos and some people thought he was the escaped prisoner. It turns out he wasn’t.

He was merely a man with special needs who likes to wander in town. Interestingly, they detained him for hours. What for?

Isn’t this a violation of his human rights? The Police might like to read up on the Constitution to avoid another million-dollar lawsuit. Just a thought…
