How can you detain a citizen of another country has hasn't done anything wrong?
For the safety of the public if a police officer has probable cause to arrest a subject, if an affidavit is presented by an officer of the law showing
probable cause or if a complaint is officially filed under oath against the subject and the presiding judge determines that there is probable cause to
investigate the case they an issue a warrant for the arrest of the subject.
The subject will then be apprehended and placed in custody at least until they have the opportunity to face the judge and plead their case. Depending
on the gravity of the crime, the risk to the public, the risk of flight, and the facts used to determine probable cause, the judge may grant the
subject release on their own recognizance, until a future date when the case goes to trial, the judge may grant the subject release on a bond that is
befitting the offense the subject is accused of until a future date when the case goes to trial, or the judge might refuse to allow the subject to be
released on bail, if the offense the subject is accused of is sufficiently violent that the public safety would be at risk were the subject to be
released. For example, in the case of Drew Peterson after the exhumation of his former wife's body, autopsy results indicated that the cause of
death was homicide, the court refused to release him on bail as the offense was homicide and he was a former officer of the law, who's current wife
was missing with indication that she could have been eliminated also.
