On October 6th My fellow cop blockers and I saw a women get assaulted by a man on a motorcycle, when the police arrived the woman who got hit was on my friends property. We asked the police to stay on public property and to not enter onto our friends property. After violating our 4th Amendment right, I informed the women and the man that they were not legally required to make any statements to the police. That’s when the officer told me he was going to arrest me for hindering an investigation. He told me to back up and get on the porch or I would be placed under arrest. When he was talking to me the other officer tried grabbing the girls hand and started shoving her (I apologize for bad camera quality on the video). We were only trying to help and inform people of there rights.
What do you think? Was this officer out of line? Does informing people of their rights constitute hindering an investigation?
