Why Wasn’t ‘Legal Schnauzer’ Arrest Warrant Signed?
You’d almost come to the opinion that both the courts and law enforcement officials in the state of Alabama are either incompetent, corrupt, or a combination of both:
An incident report in the arrest of Legal Schnauzer publisher Roger Shuler shows that the warrant in the case was not signed, apparently meaning there was no judicial authorization for the arrest. That comes on top of revelations that a prosecutor did not have a copy of the warrant and did not turn one over in Shuler’s resisting arrest case.
Both pieces of information point to the fact that there either was no warrant at all or no valid warrant that authorized Shuler’s arrest.
“The incident report has a box that says ‘warrant signed?’ and the box for ‘no’ is checked,” Shuler said. “That’s the only information I have at this point, but it strongly suggests that no judge signed any warrant. The prosecutor’s failure to turn over a warrant suggests there was no warrant at all of any kind, and it again adds to the mountain of evidence that suggests that I’m basically the victim of a kidnapping.”
