    I find that wording odd. Most people would say "Hey! How are you? We missed Cooper today. Is he sick?"

    Not "What are you doing here?"

    I smell collusion. Hope it's okay to voice suspicion, because that wording raises my hackles.

    Bringing this over from the previous thread...

    LE doesn't make it clear they are free to leave if they're not under arrest, nor do they have to. LE's goal is to get the suspect to talk..to either incriminate themselves to warrant an arrest or to tip them off about someone else involved. But the fact is, if you know your rights, you can refuse to cooperate by not talking and if they don't have enough on you to place you under arrest, you can walk out of there. If LE had enough anyway, you'd be arrested.

    If they had done what you're implying (illegally questioning without reading him his rights), you can bet it would've been addressed at the PCH. Much of what he said in his interview was revealed during the detective's testimony to support probable cause.

    Exactly! They nailed him at that hearing with his own words. He told them he had no malicious intent when he left Cooper in the car. His comment can--and will--be interpreted to mean he did intend to leave Cooper in the car. He just didn't intend for him to die. I think the car seat was intentionally placed rear-facing so that if someone noticed the baby in the office parking lot and called police, Harris would have an excuse.

    If LE responded to a call involving a dead body in my car, I would expect to be answering questions. If I chose to not answer their questions, I would be under arrest immediately. Under these circumstances, one is not free to go just because they don't feel like answering questions. That was my point.

    I understand that. I was speaking in general terms.

    As you said, in this specific case, if RH had refused to talk he would've been arrested anyway. But he wasn't placed under arrest until after he did talk, which is the proper time to read him his rights.

    I don't believe that LE did anything illegal.

    It's so heart breaking seeing little Cooper's forum dying down after the General Discussion thread was closed. :(

    Hey, SALEM about the other names used for Ross...........I knew, but some posters actually thought that Roscoe was his name and Ross was a nick. Roscoe was one of his many screen names, so no one was totally off the beaten path. LOL. OK no screen names! JMO

    Thanks cady -- I did see that. And it is okay to point out that it was a screen name, but it is not okay to use it to refer to him on our site, kwim? Here, we call him Ross, or as I prefer, RH. Okay to say that "RH went by the name Roscoe on such and such a site". But that is the extent of the name variation.

    Thanks!

    Dying down? We have tons of Cooper threads. What topic do you think we are missing due to the general thread being shut down?

    I think Cooper's forum is still very active. I do think it will go through a lot of quietness/inactivity before the trial because there is nothing being released, and there aren't many people talking. Especially if the judge issues a gag order.

    With the case being prepared for the GJ, we won't hear anything until that is completed imo.
