America has seen days of protests since Donald Trump became the President Elect on November 9, 2016. Americans have the right to assemble and protest, but then why are some people getting arrested? What are the boundaries?

Here is what you might want to know in case you, or a loved one, ever plan to attend a protest:

  • What you say at a protest, even if controversial, is your right and the First Amendment will protect you on this. The police cannot arrest you based on what you say. However, there may be rules and restrictions, particularly for groups. For example, a group may require a permit to use sound amplifiers in public spaces for their protests.

You may not have to like the police, but you sure as heck better respect them. They have tough jobs and hold quite a bit of authority and power. One wrong move can cause them to think twice about you. Don’t want trouble with the police? Just respect them.

Part of respecting police includes knowing how to conduct yourself when you are in their presence. They tell you to put your hands where they can see them: do it. That’s respect. They ask you an innocent question: answer it. In the middle of a heated conversation and they angrily shout at you to calm down: do it. That’s respect. Your cooperation, even if you guys have been yelling at each other, is respect.

What happens if you do not comply with the officer’s requests? They can arrest you. Throw you in jail. Make you face a trial...
