SA: Plan to Get Arrested? Be Prepared

The Student Assembly hosted a seminar with Manchester-based lawyer John Kacavas yesterday. The Purpose? To inform students of their rights before Green Key Weekend. SA did the same thing last term, but it was after Winter Carnival. “We figured we’d try something proactive,” said Neil Kandler ’09, who organized the seminar. Though Kacavas wanted to talk more broadly about students’ constitutional rights, those in attendance wanted answers to more concrete questions.

Alex Spinoso ‘08 asked Kacavas about when he could legally flee from police, if the police were not directly questioning him.

“It’s good to know that I could run and not worry about getting in trouble,” he said.
