Would racial profiling apply here? The officer made no
Would racial profiling apply here?The officer made no mention, and they were already following the civilian. Also the officer admitted that both him and his partner were suppose to be about 2-3 blocks from the stop, because they were part of a Task Force brought to the area to help out with car robberies. Potential car robbery is the reason the officer and his partner gave for conducting the stop, and having looked at the officer when they were intentionally pursuing the civilian was not stated.

If Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and
If John Doe is accused of a crime that he is innocent of, and only because he gets scared, he does all of the following: Resists arrest and hits a police officer, when in jail, knocks a guard unconscious and escapes from jail, when in court after being recaptured, he knocks a bailiff unconscious and runs out of court and escapes, when recaptured, he knocks a guard unconscious and escapes jail again this time stealing a car to do so and leaving it abandoned in a vacant lot undamaged, when recaptured and in court again, it is discovered that he is innocent after all. Will all the assaults, escapes, and the grand theft auto and stuff be forgotten about because John Doe should never have been arrested in the first place because he was innocent and it was the error of the law, or would he still have to pay for those charges? (For the states of Texas and Indiana) Thank you.
I surfed the internet, Craig List woman, not really sex, one
I surfed the internet, Craig List for adds woman for men, not really for real sex, one add called my attention, she wants some help for the rent. I met her on the street and I told her that I am not interested in sex, she tried to rob me with a knife, I was still in my car, happened just seconds after I met her. Was able to call the police and while she ried to take my phone, I was able to take the knife out of her hands and with the police on the phone she ran away. I presented charges for robery and murder intent. Emails from her are explicit indicating that she needs money for the rent. Police indicated that if I don't present charges, they will prosecute me for something like prostitute solicitation. I never engaged in this activity with this woman. Do I am protected under the fifth (already gave the police her phone number and the knife she used). Do I need a lawyer immediately or I need to wait to see if the police finds her and I need to testify.
