Floyd George was arrested on suspicion of passing forged currency. That is a felony and is an immediate arrestable offence. The Police have no latitude and there is no citation (that I know of) that can be issued.
Man you’re a piece of work. It’s that kind of ignorance (particularly with LEOs) that’s gets people killed
People pass fake money all the time, often unknowingly, particularly in neighborhoods like that one. The felony is for KNOWINGLY passing fake money. If a white woman in a suburban neighborhood in Minnesota passed a fake $20 you’re saying 4 cops should have arrested her, guns drawn?
And OF COURSE POLICE HAVE LATITUDE … Discretion
Lastly .. dumbass … the very article you say offers “nothing concrete” offers the very real and very concrete example of citations for crime just like this one. Precisely so as to avoid what happened here. My point: take a flipping moment and read – especially when someone provides the material to you.
