On criminal records


"Authorities said that because [...] neither of the teens had a criminal record, they both have since been released and cleared to continue their travels." This sentence implies that "authorities" believe it is justified to continue detaining persons with criminal records even after they have been shown to be innocent of any wrongdoing in the event prompting their apprehension. One would think it sufficient to say "Once we discovered that we were mistaken in our suspicion about these individuals, we released them." or such like. Since they conciously included this additional language, one is led to conclude that in fact they intended this implied meaning. One wonders why we bother releasing convicts from jail if they're subject to indefinite periods of future detention with no remaining justfication whatsoever.

It's also perhaps notable that the incident is characterized as a "misunderstanding" rather than a "mistake," implying mutual rather than unilateral origin of error. (talk) 04:26, 22 January 2010 (UTC)Reply



They used to try to treat hysteria as a disease. How much do we have to wait till the american "authorities" are given electro-shocks? I mean this joke has gone far enough. There should be a free hospitalisation ticket for each imbecil who sniffs a bomb. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 02:25, 23 January 2010
