A Bill to Fix the Definition of Arrest

A Bill to Fix the Definition of Arrest


BE IT ENACTED BY THE STATE OF FIRESTONE CONGRESS HERE ASSEMBLED THAT:

PREAMBLE: Currently, False Arrest is defined as “the act of a law enforcement officer arresting an individual for an offense that isn’t unlawful, the wrong offense, for arresting an individual for an offense they clearly didn’t commit, or either undertiming or overtiming the arrestee for the charge(s) being used for the arrest.”

Though, arrest itself is later defined as: “the act of a law enforcement officer holding an individual in custody, with a probable cause, for breaking the law, or for an offense that the suspect has committed.”

What happens if a law enforcement officer is holding an individual in custody, without a probable cause, for breaking the law, or for an offense that the suspect did not commit has committed? If an officer arrests someone WITHOUT Probable Cause, it’s not even considered an arrest. This is a MAJOR flaw and it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

SECTION I. 'A Bill to Fix False Arrest’ shall be defined as A Bill to Fix False Arrest.

SECTION II. 'A Bill to Fix False Arrest’, Section 2 Sub-section B currently states:
“Arrest shall be defined as the act of a law enforcement officer holding an individual in custody, with a probable cause, for breaking the law, or for an offense that the suspect has committed.”

SECTION III. 'A Bill to Fix False Arrest’, Section 2 Sub-section B shall now state:
"Arrest shall be defined as the act of a Law Enforcement Officer (or anyone with the power to arrest defined in legislation) incarcerating an individual."

SECTION IV. This legislation shall become law immediately after following the Constitutional procedure defined.

Respectfully submitted to the Congress of the State of Firestone,
