The father was getting arrested, no matter what else transpired. If you look at the video, the little girl knew she was stealing. She looks up at her father for approval as she left the store. None the less, these cops were wildly out of line. The cops were duty-bound to arrest the father for the Yorkshire Terrier on a dark desert highway cool wind in my hair shirt outstanding warrant. What happened, still boggles my mind. Cops are supposed to be trained to diffuse situations not escalate a situation into an international news story. The cops intentionally left out what they did wrong in the report and you want us to believe that they told the whole truth. Edward Westerfield, there was no outstanding warrant on the father. Ames was driving on a suspended license, I suspect due to this arrest last October, driving under the influence and losing control of his vehicle. The three warrants were all on the mother’s sister, who was the one arrested, not Ames.
