    They would have to prove intent if he did it on twitter.

    Meh. Its like that speed trap thing. If the protesters get the note the cops are coming and go home its almost as good as arresting them and carting them off the street. Not really the same as a felony.
    Thank you

    The act would be intent. It's like proving intent when someone robs a liquir store. Did he intend on robbing the liquir store? Same thing with aiding and abetting.

    When someone posts the location of a speed trap, it is not intent. Sorry but it is not the same thing. Can you show me an instance where someone posts the location of a speedtrap where they were arrested for someone speeding?

    It's still illegal. Just like it's illegal for someone to report the location of a cop on a CB radio. Not a felony, but still illegal.

    If cops are unleashed on a populace unjustly then perhaps I don't want to be where they are exactly. Even though I'm up to no ill. I know how the system works. I don't want to be ruffled up and forced through cars and rooms and written up by royal decree "Thou art a criminal and this will be tallied against you within our system. We hope you change."

    Next thing you know it will be illegal to say "The cops are outside my house." Cops are ants of the hive of the city. Actively converting the force that quells the dissenters is the only way to ever hope to get through any barriers being set up. To convince them that their paycheck inst worth your silence. Make them feel guilty once then be their friend till they beat you. But its only worth doing if everyone is willing to do it. Or you are just embers in a fire that pass shortly.

    Then with that short and sudden conversion (if at all possible) penetrate a key event and leave peacefully. I garentee you that the first police force to instead enter the next world event with the protesters will be the highest regarded servants in history as we remember it so far. At least to me.

    Again show me where someone was areested for telling the location of a speed trap. Hell it's been done on the radio MANY times. In Colorado, there were many radio broadcasts of speed traps yet NOONE was arrested.

    Even I've texted at times to friends and family when I pass by many cops for them to be careful. I've not been arrested for it. Please show me the law where it is illegal to broadcast speed traps.

    Section 390.13 of the Federal Motor Carrier's Safety Handbook states that it's illegal to aid and abett a violation. Speeding is a violation. Reporting the location of law enforcement officers is illegal. I've been ticketed for it, in Colorado, in fact.
