Charges against Sheehan dropped

As expected Charges against Sheehan dropped

It has been argued that Sheehan resisted arrest and thus the reason for her arrest, granted given the following statement:

“Neither guest should have been confronted about the expressive T-shirts,” Gainer’s statement said.

Is resisting an illegal action grounds for arrest? If you know the cop in question is incorrect in their judgement and you "don't respond" to their orders, can you be arrested? If so, its once step closer to the iron curtain.

Sheehan claims that she had little chance to "not respond" and was whisked away seconds after removing her coat. Also the fact that a Representatives' wife was ejected, not arrested, caused some concern. Beverly Young was asked to leave for wearing a pro-war t-shirt, Cindy Sheehan was arrested for wearing and anti-war one.

Regardless of the next day legalities, the actions did what they were meant to do, and no show any sign of dissent in front of the president.
