How can police determine that one is no longer allowed to be at a protest? I know that some think that the first amendment no longers applies, but I'd like a better explanation.

3/29 Portland Arrestee's account 30.Mar.2003 03:26

Linda J. Rudnick rudfree@aol.com

One of the male arrestees on Saturday, March 29 at Pioneer Square was charged with interfering with a police officer despite the fact that he was doing everything he was asked to do, except he refused to identify himself. He was not violating any law, nor was there any probable cause to believe that he was committing a crime or about to commit a crime. To help defend him in his up coming prosecution, we would appreciate any witness to these events to come forward. Please contact me at your earliest convenience.
