It is far easier to shut up when confronted by US law enforcement than to resist arrest., True, but like I said people are changing,thanks to everyone with a phone.

And she was not charged, only arrested.

I've argued with the police a few times when there are witnesses around and ,
even locked up for a few hours,no big deal.
Same thing happened to her, and now she has people talking about it, a good thing.

Read the article.

The officer arrested Hargrave on charges of "remaining after being forbidden" and resisting an officer, but she bonded out of the Abbeville jail once her mug shot was taken. Ike Funderburk, the prosecutor and city attorney in Abbeville, told KATC that she won't be prosecuted.

Puyau said that the school system would not press charges. He said he did not order Hargrave's removal or arrest, but repeatedly declined to say whether anyone else on the board was responsible for her treatment. While refusing to comment on details, Puyau made clear to that he was unhappy with how things played out.

"She was handcuffed outside the meeting room and booked on charges that included resisting an officer."

This was taken directly from my original post (#1).

What is so hard to understand about this? She was charged.
Do you have a problem with the English language?

Now you're mincing words.
She was booked on charges after she was hand cuffed.
The only reason she wasn't thrown in jail to face the original charges was it became a front page story.
The lion's share of poor souls such as these don't make it to the news.
That's why most people choose to just shut up when confronted by authority in the US.

She was lucky the fumbling cops decided to arrest her in public instead of pursuing this after she
left and was driving home. Then they could have smacked her around a bit before handcuffing and
booking her. The charges wouldn't have been dropped in that case.
