1. Eating when you are bored. I am a college student and when it’s time for me to study, I get hungry. Why? because I don’t want to study so I’m distracting myself.

Schlossberg’s lawyer [Lauren Regan] said the sergeant then charged the activist, roughly grabbed for his camera and wrenched his arm behind his back. Schlossberg was thrown to the ground, where his head struck the pavement, and felt the sergeant’s knee on his neck, Regan said. 

Solesbee seized Schlossberg’s camera and arrested him. He was jailed for five hours on charges of resisting arrest and intercepting communications. Prosecutors later dismissed the charges.”  (source: http://reason.com/blog/2012/01/30/federal-jury-says-cops-cant-arrest-peopl)
