Hello, Are you wondering why they haven't arrested you? Many times police simply don't have the manpower or the resources to find everyone who has skipped their court dates. So they prioritize. Non-violent offenders are not the same risk to the community as violent offenders, so there's less of a rush to find you than to find others. Besides, police know that sooner or later, you're likely to turn up. YOu'll get stopped for a traffic offense, for example, or turn up to renew your driver's license where a clerk may call the police. Or you'll get rearrested for a brand new offense. In short, maybe they'll come looking for you, and maybe they will just wait for you to find them.
