So much for freedom of speech in Amerika.

This does illustrate, however, that it is never wise to resist arrest...and the video clearly shows that in the beginning he was resisting.

It is better to state (loudly, if there's a crowd), "I submit under protest and duress, with all rights reserved. I've done nothing illegal, and I'm not resisting".

This guy did NOT break any law & deserved an answer. Kerry could have declined, but instead this polite & respectful citizen was UNlawfully arrested AND assaulted him for exercising his free speech. To anyone stating that he was not calm; he WAS calm until they assaulted him! The citizens in that room should have aided the victim, Those bastards are SUPPOSED to be public servants, but they are cronies of the GESTAPO USA. Time for a revolution!

To Mr. Haley, in fact, he was "resisting." However, he SHOULD have resisted arrest, for it was UNwarranted! They should NOT have initially grabbed him. That is assualt. If you don't believe me, try even touching one of those bastards... nevermind grabbing one of them.

RE: "...it was UNwarranted!"---

I agree...but never resist arrest. If you do,
1) you could be injured or killed;
2) you compound your problems, for you will certainly be convicted of at least resisting arrest (possibly much more, such as assault & battery); and,
3) it accomplishes nothing except increasing the risk to you.
