If a person is held for a single day, is it worth the paperwork for 1 day loss?
A set rate? Variable rate depending on current salary? Every jurist gets paid what, about 20 bucks a day .. they detain you then too.
Lets assume that the detainment is appropriate. Person gets detained for 3 days? I don't see the compelling need for any payment for three days (of course people who heat their houses with a wood stove, they get detained, their stove runs out of fuel, and their pipes burst ... so many variables to consider)....
I assume that one gets fed and sheltered over the detainment ~ not just tossed into a hole, right? You have to pay them back for these costs? Those costs might be more than your salary.
One person might make 100 bucks a day and the next 2000...
