Reasons Not to Go to the Police

In November, Michael Brown, 19, became the most recent person with poor decision-making skills forced to report to a police station (this, in College Station, Texas) in the middle of the night to ask officers to please remove the handcuffs he’d been playing around with. Following the officers’ mandatory records check, it was learned Brown had an arrest warrant for criminal mischief; following a mandatory search, they found he had two ounces of marijuana in his pocket.
