The punishment for resisting arrest should be proportionate to the inconvenience the resistor caused to the officer.

3 - Purpose

(2) By the s.3(2)(a) of the Criminal Jurisdiction Act, the police may charge an initial $60 fine for resisting arrest without trial, though the rest of the fine may only be issued by a court of law.
(3) To prevent the avoidance of charges via logging off, the calculation of the fine of resisting arrest, mentioned in s.3(1), shall include time in which the resistor was not online.
