24 Hours In Police Custody

24 Hours In Police Custody From the BBC

As I stated earlier, I’m a huge fan of the BBC. Somehow while scrolling through the on limited amounts of things to watch on my Media Cube I stumbled across “24 Hours In Police Custody“. I admit, I never even heard of program before, just the title of it caught my eye. This one wound up being another binge watching session.

 24 hours in police custody
The amazing thing about this show is how much I learned about the British legal system in comparison to the cluster-fuck we have here in America. In 90% of cases, the police are not allowed to detain you for anymore than 24 hours unless you are formally charged. I was struck by the two humongous differences from the criminal justice system in America.

1. Everyone is so damn polite! :)

2. They can’t keep you sitting in jail for months on end, waiting for the Keystone cops to try to make the case against you.

I find it kind of funny that every year on the Fourth of July — we celebrate the fact we seceded from the British?

Where is my passport?
