Invites

I don’t really get police logic.

What’s with the police “inviting” people instead of “arresting” them?

As you may have read in this previous blog lecture, “Arrest is the taking of a person into custody in order that he may be bound to answer for the commission of an offense.” (Section 1, Rule 113, Revised Rules of Criminal Procedure).

Could you really “refuse” a police “invite”? Can you really refuse to go with someone with a gun? Of course not.

If a man with a gun asks you, “Can I please have some money?” would what you’ll give him be a “donation”? Of course not.

Face it. That “invite” is an arrest and should be done with a warrant. Unless, of course, it qualifies under a warrantless arrest.
