What to Expect When You Are Expecting... To Be Arrested
Richmond Legal Process Guideline for Anarchists and Others
This is an outline for some important things to keep in mind when embarking on any enterprise which may lead to police detainment or arrest.
This guideline is specifically aimed at folks who might be at risk for arrest due to the political nature of their activities - from protests to civil disobedience to other forms of direct action.
Even when it is no one's intention to be arrested, the police state will do what it do.
Preparing ahead of time, mentally and logistically can make both those incarcerated and their support network a lot less stressed out.
This guideline is a work in progress and we encourage any suggestions or additions - let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
