New York City cop imprisons college student without ID for two days | The Lookout - Yahoo! News

Young out of town college student, with friend, in park after park curfew in New York, arrested and spent 36 hours in more than one jail. The cop had the option to let her go, but instead, he decided to haul her off to jail.

One thing I'm confused about (beside the obvious issue of the over the top, thug like, facistic behavior of the cop in question. Whose name is Officer Durrell of the 26th district. What I'm confused about is this:
It's not against the law, of course, to be out on New York's streets without identification--but the courts can detain people without identification in jail until their arraignment in lieu of issuing them a summons.
If it's not against the law, then how, why, can it be that this happened?


Wake UP!
