Which bit is embarrassing? The bit about reporting (that WAS done), arresting six people (obviously deemed as necessary at the time, due to whatever circumstances) or SFA to do with it (could’ve been associates of the deceased etc, but given they’ve all been released with no further action to be taken, I’d presume it’s true that they had nothing to do with the tragic incident).
say for examples sake they were all drinking in a room with the deceased (I haven’t a clue whether this actually WAS the case). Fella tragically falls out, drunk. People see him fall/see him on the pavement and call cops. Cops see where he’s fallen from, or else associates happen to stumble down to see if he’s alright. Being drunk, incoherent etc, do you think it would be correct for the cops to let them all sober up and tell them all to come by the police station at a later time of their choosing to ask what happened, or do you think it might’ve been erring on the correct side of necessity and proportionality that they were detained there and then, “just in case” it WAS a murder, and vital evidence might have been lost if they hadn’t? What would you have done in that situation? I’m guessing the former, because simply from looking at the body on the floor, you’d have known straight off that it wasn’t foul play, right, Sherlock?
