Appellant says his conviction was irretrievably tainted with error when the trial court refused to permit inquiry into the actions of the police at the time of the arrest in respect to the rights of the accused. No statement alleged to have been made while the accused was in custody was offered during the trial or discussed in the presence of the jury. We find no error.
