I was wondering if I should wait until after the season starts. Sounds like a good plan. Appy State is coming to town after all....
I am seeing some discussion about police procedures related to searching cars between suspects and such. I would like to share my observations having been on scene as a first responder with different levels of law enforcement dozens of times. I have not ever seen a law enforcement vehicle searched between suspects. The reason being is that each person is searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the back of the vehicle. Simple as that. NO ONE goes in the back of the car unsearched and/or unsecured. Would be very difficult for Sprinkle to remove the drugs from where he was holding them and then hide them in the car if he was handcuffed. And if he wasn't? Well, if an officer had that large a lapse in judgment, the likely procedural errors alone will make it almost impossible to convince a state attorney to push the charge through. I just don't see a scenario that ends in an actual charge being pursued.
Remember, the scene was described as mayhem. I'm not saying that Law Enforcement didn't do their job or that they did anything to compromise the public safety or anything along those lines. I love those men and women. I just know from experience that sometimes when the sh*t is going down procedural mistakes can be made. From a legal standpoint, this creates a large amount of wiggle room in a criminal case. The more wiggle room, the less likely the charge. Now, this is good news for Sprinkle. If of course it wasn't his cocaine. If it was, well, that's the really bad part of what happens when small procedural things get over-looked; the bad guy gets away with it and doesn't the help they need or the punishment they deserve.
And for those who are jumping on the 'rush to judgment' freight train, do you recall that one time Carlos Hyde beat up that girl because someone drew a picture of it? Yeah, me neither. Calm down and see what happens.
The Titanic sinks. Shhhh
A female trait?
