    Well considering that may be the only thing on the list that I would even consider worth getting arrested for, it's okay.

    And I completely agree with the rest of what you said.

    Protesters who are doing anything that is violating some city law should expect to get arrested. If they don't, but honestly it is because the violation really didn't put people in danger, then they should consider themselves lucky. Protesters should not be challenging and taunting police to use force, of some kind, against them to get them to move or to actually arrest them.

    What I've already said. Protestors have the absolute right to peacefully protest, so long as they are willing to take the consequences of their actions. If they block public buildings, stop traffic, or set up a tent-city in a public park, fine with me. It's also fine with me for the police to take whatever action is necessary to clear the area(s) for public use, and to arrest those who were in violation of lawful orders.
