1. Man in custody dispute hears of warrant for DV charge. Hires Bail company and turns himself in.
2. Sheriff refuses to honor bail citing a requirement to hold him for 12 hours. Man files for violation of due process.
3. Court rules Sheriff misread law which says a Magistrate must rule that the accused is a threat, before he can be held for 12 hours..
4. Lawyers for Sheriff dept. say that liberty doesn't mean "physical' Liberty. Apellate court agrees.

What? Physical liberty is not liberty?  Wow. They were just pissed that this guy figured out the system better than they did. It is so BS that the people who commit the abuses are the ones you have to convince of their own wrongdoing to make any changes. Talk about the foxes gaurding the hen houses.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Or something like that.
