>even if the minor must be put through the ringer to co-operate.
You understand that its statements like this, that make some of us weary of cooperating with law enforcement sometimes. If my one of my kids were involved in something of this magnitude, you can bet we would get a lawyer before we said anymore after the initial statement. Especially as this has blown up into something much much bigger and complicated.
Any sadly, and typically, the lawyers tell you to say nothing unless subpoenaed.
So if anything else is to come from the girl who dropped her off, it will need to not be forced, but volunteered, because the girl or her family believe its the right thing to do.
This is turning into an ugly situation for everyone involved...anyone who knew them...its such a shame...
I am a retired LE with a lot of experience in interviewing juveniles. When I say put her through the ringer, I don't nessicarily mean strong-arming her but there are ways to open her up to co-operating. And when you say that is what makes people weary of co-operating with LE, well peoples lives are at stake, so I have no respect for that at all coming from an adult. A CHILDS life is more important than anything,and I speak from experience of 25 years in LE. Sorry for the rant and don't even get me started on lawyers.
Sorry to be picky, but the word is "wary". "Weary" means tired.
