False Argument Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
The assertion that is most often declared in opposition to police is the act of false apprehension. The people that bring this claim to the forefront claim that police intentionally dishonored their Fourth Amendment right in contradiction of arbitrary confiscation. If the officer had a likely cause to consider the individual had committed an offense or misdeed, the arrest is rational and the Fourth Amendment has not been breached. Police also have the ability to arrest with no warrant for a felony or misdemeanor that is perpetrated in their presence (Polluck, 2004). Even if the information the officer depended on later turns out to be incorrect, the officer is not held responsible if he believed it was correct at the time that the arrest took place.
