Yeah, because criminals are so trustworthy they should always be believed:The officers stopped Salva after they saw her placing a fake temporary tag on the back window of her car.The officers handcuffed Salva after learning she had outstanding warrants for mistreatment of children, trespassing and several traffic violations.
Little angel, ain't she?
They couldn't tend to her medical needs and do their police work as well?? It would seem like erring on the side of caution is always the best thing to do.
Until the cop ends up getting a knife in his back or something. People seem to be forgetting that this *woman* is a criminal. She broke the law repeatedly, not to mention that at least one of her warrants for the mistreatment of a child(!). So now the police should listen and care about her? Her word or minor pain means squat. I don't believe the police should go out of their way to do something for a criminal.
Want the cops to treat you reasonably? Don't be a criminal. Seems pretty simple to me.
I am not saying that they should have had a limo pick her up and then ask her to come back so that they could process her. She wasn't accused of armed robbery or anything so I don't know how the knife statement applies here but couldn't they have just cuffed her?? Cuffing her and getting her medical attention seems simple enough. There are different levels of criminals but committing a crime shouldn't be reason enough to refuse medical attention to someone, IMHO.
