    IMPORTANT QUESTION-concerning citizen's arrests

    Discussion started by Dick Quickwood - Jan 14, 2004

    when you bust out a citizen's arrest, do you have the right to search the arrestee, if so, is the search supposed to be limited to weapons ?

    your right to make a citizen's arrest is flimsy at best, let alone to perform a search on your arestee. that may be classed as indecent assult. better call your lawyer. this chick's pretty good:

    well im not a legal expert or anything but logically only the police have the power to do searches. a citizen can't really do that wihtout police powers..

    It depends on the State and other things

    I don't know much about other state's laws, but in Texas, private citizens have just as much right to arrest someone that they observe breaking the law as the police have. In fact, our Constitution requires citizens to assist the police if they request it, in arresting and controlling a suspect. This is because citizens of a State are members of the state military forces because they are part of the militia. Any Texas peace officer can deputize a citizen right on the spot simply by saying "I deputize you as a Texas peace officer." ("Now, pick up that deer rifle and follow me!")

    If I observe someone committing a felony, and I can affect a citizen's arrest DURING DAYLIGHT HOURS, and I am not defending my own life, the life of another person, or preventing the escape of a felony suspect, I cannot use deadly force.

    However DURING THE HOURS OF DARKNESS in the State of Texas, deadly force may be used BY ANY CITIZEN to defend his life or property, or the life or property of another, or to prevent murder, aggravated murder, rape, aggravated rape, robbery, aggravated robbery, attempted arson (BUT NOT ARSON ITSELF), theft, etc., etc.

    I asked the attorney "Theft? I can use deadly force to prevent theft?" And he said, "Mr. Kabar, during the hours of darkness, if you catch someone so much as stealing a skateboard off your porch, and you cannot recover your property any other way, you can shoot his ass down in your yard. But then you have to live with yourself."

    These laws were written in 1876 to break the back of the Ku Klux Klan, and they did a damned good job. The "White Knights" weren't so fucking brave when the black folks could shoot back with impugnity.

    You can only shoot to kill I though, right? I
    know in Michigan when you take the classes to
    carry a concealed weapon they say you have
    the right to shoot to kill any time you feel your
    life is in iminent danger... but you have to be
    aiming for the head or chest, if you shoot to
    maime and the person survives they can sue
    and/or prosecute.

    semi random input
    I watched a police show once where they camera crew road around with a regular guy that did citizen's arrests on DUI (driving under the influence) he would call the police before he got out and made the arrest, It was really more like holding till the police get there. Evidently this guy does this sort of thing alot.

    man, if some vigilante jackass was trying to pull drunk assholes out of their car, i'd think they'd just run him over.

    if i was drunk enough to think i should drive, i probably would.

    that's bullshit, in my opinion.

    i remember hearing about the burglar who fell off the roof of a house and decided to try and sue the homeowner. or something close to that. fucking idiot.

    I should sue old people for allowing our legal system to degenerate to the point that such frivolous lawsuits are possible.
