    My first question would be if it's even legal and constitutional to require me to show ID when entering a shelter, hiding from a hurricane ? especially if it's based on a 'mandatory' evacuation ?
    If i did not think of packing my ID in the heat of the moment, is that a crime in itself ?

    Don't make a big stink about it. Don't talk about it. Don't waste time going for small timers.

    But, if they can get their hands on a SERIOUS criminal, then, by all means, they should pick him or her up, when the availability arises.

    (Not so certain that Hurricane conditions are best for apprehending and transporting criminals, though.....)
    Yeah, fuck those old people in that nursing home that need rescuing, cops are too busy taking people with overdue parking tickets to jail.

    Fucking brilliant policy in the middle of a natural disaster.

    That IS NOT a quote by the spokesperson. It is editorializing by the author about people getting arrested for parking tickets. Where did the spokesperson say that?

    Keep flailing.

    I shut up?

    Really?

In the meantime, they sit in a jail cell, while their terrified kids have no one.

    Look, I agree, in principle, that if you get a ticket, just pay the damned thing. But, perhaps a hurricane is not the proper time to "make a point", dontcha think?

    Where did the sheriff's dept say they would arrest for unpaid traffic tickets?

    Of course that mother and her children should be separated! She an awful human being and her children need to suffer for a minor offense. The cruelty of some right wingers is mind blowing sometimes.

    Bullshit. It is reporting what the spokesman said. But, you, of course, need to have some reason, however idiotic, to excuse your defense of this appalling position.

    Reporters routinely lie in their reporting. Hell, you lied in your thread title. And since I have never heard of "complex.com", or Joshua Espinoza, I need a quote.

    Especially given all the editorializing in his "reporting".

    But apparently you have no quote.

    didn't even think of that. But, you're absolutely right. In order for police to conduct a search they need probable cause that a crime has been committed. Even if they stop you driving they need a reasons. Not a lawyer. But, I'd think they'd need to get a general warrant . That and the fact that you'd think that right now the sheriff department would just be making unnecessary work for themselves during a crisis.

    Well, it would seem that every journalist who was present understood her to say the same thing:

    Hurricane Irma: Florida sheriff threatens to arrest fugitives at shelters - Orlando Sentinel

    Lemme guess. They're all lying?
