#Leftist #NODAPL #MayDay I-5 Protestors

Arrest them and book them into jail. Unhesitatingly. When LE officials decide not to do so, they are
clearly NOT enforcing applicable law and are in fact aiding and abetting criminal acts by protestors.

I'm still researching applicable-current RCWs and various related laws to be specific, but minimally the
protestors so called are committing a number of traffic infractions and crimes when they shut down
any public highway or roadway without law enforcement authority or proper permitting.

Generally, these crimes and infractions can be summed up as follows.

It is ILLEGAL in Washington State to:

#1: Interfere with publicly regulated roadways without special permissions and/or permits and
accompanying traffic assistance. Its a public safety, freedom of passage and unrestrained conveyance
matter.
#2: Interfere with, hinder, or delay the free passage of anyone, whether in a POV conveyance or not.
#3: Endanger the motoring public through reckless and illegal traffic mischief.
#4: Interrupt public services, particularly public transit and emergency services, without special
permissions or lawful authority.
#5: Unlawfully detain anyone, for any reason, whether in a POV on a public highway or not, without
state commissioning as a law enforcement officer, deputy or trooper in the performance of their
necessary duties for the safety of the motoring public at large and in general.

Please read the following RCW and reference selections. When specific language about the illegal
actions is mentioned, its marked bold and underlined.

Washington State Pedestrian Laws


Here is a summary of some of Washington's pedestrian laws:

Traffic signals -Pedestrians must obey traffic signals


and traffic control devices unless otherwise directed
by a traffic or police officer (RCW 46.61.050).

and bicycles to cross the road within a marked or unmarked crosswalk (RCW 46.61.235). See
Washington's Crosswalk Law for more information.

than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield
