On May 25th, 2020, George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit bill. The police officers involved in the arrest of George Floyd have all been arrested themselves and charged with various offenses, including murder. The death of George Floyd sparked some of the largest civil rights protests that this country has seen in decades. In major cities across the country, protesters gathered day after day and night after night. However, many protesters were arrested by law enforcement officials. If you or somebody you care about is planning to attend a protest, or if you have been arrested while attending a protest, you need to know your rights and where to turn for help.
Being arrested at a protest may not seem like a big deal, but the reality is that these arrests can have dramatic effects on those who have been detained and face charges. Aside from any possible First Amendment violations, an arrest can lead to a person losing their job, facing jail time, and incurring significant fines.
