Tweet of the Day- Resisting Arrest

This tweet from Pe/ is two days old but well captures a contradiction

The police officer didn't handcuff Representative Ocasio-Cortez because there was no need to do so. Unlike roughly 99% of individuals who are arrested, the congresswoman actually wanted to be arrested, the better to publicize the cause. The officer either ordered her to put her hands behind her back or was at least relieved that she did so, the better to get her away from the scene of the obstruction and toward the police car. It's difficult to believe that Fox News' Brett Baier is so ignorant as not to understand this.
