How to protect your rights at a protest

Your right to peacefully demonstrate for a cause is guaranteed by the Constitution. You have the right to free speech. But occasionally, when an issue is front and center and may even be a protest against the police, rights can be trampled on. Tempers can flare and violence may break out; police officers may begin making arrests or using crowd control measures, including the illegal use of force.

What is a false arrest?

Every so often, you'll see citizens claiming they've been falsely arrested by the police. In some cases, they just mean that they are innocent but have been arrested anyway; this does not necessarily mean that the law was broken.
