When a heinous crime like murder is committed, it is extremely important for the perpetrator to be arrested and brought to trial. However, it is also important for the police to make sure that they have the right suspect. Even if a person, who did not commit the crime, is not convicted, the mere fact of being arrested for murder can have serious consequences on that person's life. It is therefore up to the police to help protect society, but also to make sure they are acting responsibly while doing so.
This holds true for a recent announcement by the North Little Rock Police Department, which stated that it is currently looking for a murder suspect, who police officers suspect might be in the Springfield area. The murder occurred at a gas station in North Little Rock when a man was shot and killed. The police department has warrants out for the suspect for both capital murder and firearms.
