We have been talking about this for a few days on the unit I work on. There are a lot of male nurses, almost all veterans. No way we'd let one of our female colleagues get dragged off by some cop without a hell of a lot more shit going on than happened there.
Where were her co-workers?
I'm not defending what took place in Utah. As I said, it was a shitshow with legal ramifications and subtleties that could support a dissertation.
That said, interfering with an arrest--even one ultimately determined to have been made without legal grounds--will get you locked up in many states. It's a good way to lose a license.
It's also interesting that the charge could result in a conviction even if the arrest that was interfered with didn't result in charges, as occurred in Utah.
