A Louisiana mom who was charged with unlawful posting of criminal activity for sharing video of a fight at her son’s school says she plans to sue for unlawful arrest. Maegen Adkins-Barras shared the video on Facebook with the message: “This should not be happening. Why do we have to worry so much about our kids at school?” The next day, she was asked to attend a meeting at the school, where she was handcuffed and taken to jail. The charge was later dropped.
