Very interesting reading Ed. Looks like young Sarah has a bit of an enquiring mind and asked the very question You or I would have asked and saw a bit of a tap-dance around the point from the cop.
Sounds like Mark is a loud obnoxious A/H most of the time and he was extra loud and extra A/H-ish that night and yet it's the guy minding his business that is the bad guy. Very interesting.
He's making a big deal with the chief saying we took away his rights - yes and you did, and you're lucky so far in that it hasn't wound up in a federal court for deprivation of those rights.
As always thanks for digging this up, and posting it.
