1. K.’s arrest He’s arrested and doesn’t know why and is complying with them despite not knowing why he is arrested. - he admits he doesn’t know the law but claims hes innocent - page 5 “ I don’t know the law” “he admits he doesn’t know the law yet at the same time insists he’s innocent” - he seems to be accused of something but there isi no responsibility attached to that. - - guards are not in consistent uniform (absurbd because people in authority have uniform, you need to recognize them as law enforcement officials) -- page 10 “ he threw himself onto bed... as he verified with the first large bite... he was missing work at the bank... should he give the real excuse but if they didn’t believe him which would be understandable he could offer the two old beople or neighbor as witness ---” committing suicide would be so irrational that even if he wished to that the irrationality of the act would prevent him” -- if youre in custody, you don’t get to choose what you want. But the inspector asks him if he wants to go to work, and then even brings the clerks to take him to work. - if you are being arrested for something presumably youre a threat of some kind. - PAGE 17 “how can I go to bank if im udner arrest” “youre under arrest but that’s not meant to keep you from carrying on your profession” HES saying youre under arrest but that doesn’t mean anything, you will still continue your life. Brings clerks so you can enter work as inconscopiuius as possible. Taken steps to minizmize impact as if this never happened. - usually there are practicel consequences. Any legal move or procedure has a practicel conseuqences because someones liberty is at stake. Its not just verbal events that start an end when they are said. The beginning and end of that event has occurred. There is no practical consequence to the arrest. “youre not to be hindered in the course of your ordinary life” he;s never hindered. His will is never bent and is never forced to do anything. The court welcomes you when you arrive and dismisses you when you leave. As soon as you leave that’s it.
