Oh for f sake. Yes, he called the cops. My point was that any involvement of law enforcement on their end was a moot point since they had not witnessed a theft going on. He was calling because he felt he was being unlawfully detained.
And Digitalmatse thank you for leaving as you have not had any points to make beyond "Ooo you make me mad you bad man", good to be rid of someone like you.
BubbaLuvSpon you really don't think before you type do you kid?
"theft is a felony, and therefore you don`t have to witness it to arrest"
Lovely.. so if something is stolen in a store, they can arrest EVERYBODY in the store? What, they can`t? They need PROBABLE CAUSE? Like, say a witness or a video tape? God you are fing stupid to say something like that. There is no expectation to produce a receipt after you leave the cashier unless you choose. There is no LAW that requires it. Thus it`s your RIGHT to not obey a request for it. Simple, even for you kid

I guarantee that you will have some insults thrown at me after this is posted which just strengthens my point. If you ever find a way to talk in a calm way, then maybe you will be less hated in this discussion forum. Have you noticed that even the people who agree with your side have not sided with you? Try to figure out why that is...

"Since they denied that he stole anything, they basically called a cop for no good reason"
That quote right there shows me that you didn't understand what had happened at all. The store did not call the police, he called the police to let the store leave.
And as for this "debate" I`m just going to leave it because you simply do not know how to conduct a debate. It is to argue points in an intelligent and respectful way, which you clearly have not shown. It was interesting how you completely ignored my point about your arrogance, which tells me that you do not care about it or feel that it is justified in some way. Kid, you need to learn how to properly debate before you start. The reason there are a majority of people here who feel that you are annoying is because of the way in which you speak, NOT the point that you are arguing. Until then, I`m just going to stop now because this is pointless.

Look here dippoo... In OH it's "Reasonable Cause"... that means, if the average person, by means of the suspects actions, would have reason to believe that he may have stolen something. Then they can detain him for further investigation. There`s a difference. We don`t know excatly what his actions were in that store, so we can`t say that they didn`t have reasonable cause, can we? We have one side, HIS... and forgive me if my opinion is that his story might be a bit bias.
The store did not call the police, the jackass called the police... FYI
Just a side note... theft is a felony, and therefore you don`t have to witness it to arrest. If I see a man standing over another man in a side alley, the man on the ground is bleeding, the man standing is holding a gun. You didn`t see him shoot the guy. You heard a shot, the picture you see resembles that of a murder scene. What do you do? Murder and theft are both felonies.
