Not So Nuts

You clearly don't know anything about the court system if you think that officers only come to court if they have a paper subpoena. I have family members in the court system, and from what they tell me, officers rarely actually get paper subpoenas. They either have set court dates when they always come to court, or the attorneys just call them up and tell them when to be there, and they show up out of professional courtesy. As long as their supervisors know that they are going to court for something having to do with one of their cases, why would an attorney ever need to force an officer to come to court by holding a subpoena over their head? Not to mention that having to subpoena every single officer that is needed every day in Brunswick County would probably create a huge amount of paperwork for whoever was doing the subpoenas, not to mention the Sheriff's Department, who would spend all day every day serving subpoenas on their own officers.
