CapeNews.net – Mr. Averett was getting his hair cut at Andy’s Barber Shop in Falmouth Plaza when he was arrested. He was wanted on a Falmouth District Court warrant for disturbing the peace, vandalizing property, assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and multiple drug charges.
We have a staunch record of defending the police on this site, but this is inhumane treatment. You’ve gotta let a dude finish getting his hair cut before you arrest his ass. Americans have some inalienable rights and I’m pretty sure the right to not walk around with half a haircut is one them (or if not, it should be). Arrest him when the cape comes off, at the register, on the way out, whenever, but at least wait until the man gets his neck cleaned up, that’s what sets us apart from the animals for christ’s sake.
This incident got us thinking about other everyday tasks that it’s wrong to arrest someone during. Here is the top 5…
- Taking a shit
- Taking a shower
- Having sex
- Getting a haircut
- Drinking in public
I admit that #5 may be a bit of a stretch, but it was worth a shot. Let’s just call it artistic license.Facebook: The Real Cape
