    What does the police wanting to arrest the right person have to do with the urgency standard? Whether the case is at all time sensitive or not there is still going to be the risk of arresting the wrong person. If they had arrested the wrong person, the damage would have been the same regardless of when they did it.

    Something is wrong here, but I can’t put my finger on it…

  5. Wouldn’t “no time to lose” mean something like the emergency exceptions in the Search and Seizure chaper, where you need to identify the perp right now because there is an immediate danger to everyone else? “Get the memory while it’s still fresh” doesn’t seem like enough justification.

    Oh, and happy All Fools Day!

    • Yeah, if Pi’s reasoning holds up, then there requirements become effectively toothless because EVERY situation would be an emergency under those standards. I suspect the argument is being made so it can be smacked down (pedagogy!)

    Good thing that I’m dyslexic and don’t really worry about which direction everything goes…

  8. Kereth Midknight says

    If not wanting the memory to be any less fresh qualifies as urgency, then having showups “widely condemned” is irrelevant, because the witnesses memory is always getting less fresh, and the showup is always faster, no?
