Under the descriptions of the Model Penal Code, I witnessed Assault, Battery, and False Imprisonment at a place of business and I reported it via telephone to the Police Department. They took interest in the case until they found out I was a law student, but not only a student, but an appointee of a position as a State Attorney. When they found out I was one of "those" in "that" occupation, they became very hostile and hung up. When I physically walked into the department, they were very polite knowing I was an officer of the court. Does it seem right that the Police treat me differently if they think I am on the "other" side? I never told them I was or planned to be a criminal defense attorney. It certainly does not give me any better of a view of cops. Thoughts?
