    This thread is to post legal resources for activists. So when "they" say something is not a crime, we can point to the exact crime and charge.

    So, laws, the phrasing of charges, how to file a request for charges when bypassing the police, and related self empowerment info.

    To get started:
    For the USA, criminal laws, includes state laws:
    https://www.justia.com/criminal/laws.html

    My understanding is that the law has to be matched with a charge, so places to look for the charges:

    -----Washington State, USA------
    This page:
    www.waprosecutors.org/pubs.html

    leads to:
    http://70.89.120.146/wapa/materials/2004charging.pdf

    That's the Charging Manual for Washington State, USA. Old from 2004
    Sorry for the pdf. That's why I posted the referring link.

    ...............
    Inspired by Atheismo 's thread https://whyweprotest.net/threads/this-is-beyond-fucked-up.124430/#post-2521862
    and the many, many situations in which citizens can call for specific charges if they have the resources to know the possibilities.

    P.S.I might not be a lawyer. Just disclosing.

    San Francisco church doused homeless people with water to deter sheltering

    Seems like this should be an assault charge. Fits the description: http://www.shouselaw.com/assault.html
    So the missing link is the exact wording of the charge and where to file the paperwork. I will work on building references. Empower people to file the paperwork and not wait for well connected people to allow the police or prosecutor to charge.
