The real ramifications of resisting arrest
from By Edwin Pantoja
Many people seem to misunderstand what exactly resisting arrest is. You don't have to physically assault a police officer or prevent an officer from doing the arrest. We've all seen videos of police officers struggling to make an arrest while being circled by bystanders recording the altercation and screaming at the officers to "let him go; he didn't do anything." Typically, the person recording is the one doing the yelling, yet often doesn't even know what prompted the arrest in the first place.
