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://18.104.22.168/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.
