there's a significant section of trail already completed on the west side... how is that "giving the amenity to the affluent neighborhoods of Poncey Highlands, Midtown, and Virginia Highlands"... they're just doing what's easiest first
also, since there is a trail already opened, shouldn't the rules regarding hours already be in place? does anyone know what they are?
I'm not sure this is the best source: http://www.criminal-law-lawyer-source.com/…
but it lists obstructing traffic as a valid cause to be charged with disorderly conduct.
This site lists GA as a state with a "stop and identify" clause: http://knowmyrights.org/faq/4th-amendment/…
I haven't seen anyone that thinks the cops were wrong offer a correct way of handling the situation.
JoeInAtlanta? you say they were wrong, what would have been right?
jayde21? what is the "professional" way to handle drunk people resisting/interfering with an arrest?
alminavl... first, you don't dress like boba fett if you're not an attention whore. second, he's an impartial party in this case, I don't see what would bias him for or against either party even if he has ulterior motives
At some point, if someone is resisting arrest, then you need to become physical. If someone interferes physically, what is the appropriate response? I'm with Voxpopuli on this one... this seems much better than tasing. If the situation hadn't escalated how it did (and in the videos we only really see anything after it escalated at least to the point where people thought it would be interesting to film, we don't get to see the cops acting professionally and asking nicely for them to leave), the police could have easily lost the upper hand if they just let people physically interfere with them without consequences.
Joe, it was moved from line 121 to line 105
