What is a No-Refusal weekend?

While holiday weekends usually mark an occasion for people to get together and have a good time, in some states holiday weekends mark an occasion for officers too.

Looking back on Florida cases, the sentences and their severity seem to follow the forgiveness or lack of by the victim's family members. It seems that for the convicted, time incarcerated may hinge on the victim's family and their ability to forgive.
