Doug Goncz writes:

As usual, no provision is made for returning an unjustly detained person to their place of origin, be it home or homeless field or railroad track, and no, when authorities pick a person up for detention they don't usually give them time to collect their Metro farecard, lipstick, and snacks for the trip. It's an emergency, after all. (That is sarcasm)
