This Saturday, people all across the United States (and the world) are planning simultaneous protests, marches, and demonstrations in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York City. If you plan on attending your own local event, and you're like most people who go to these types of things, you'll probably have your phone with you so you can live-tweet, record video, and post pictures on Facebook. And if you actually plan on occupying a public space overnight, rather than just showing up during the day, there's a great chance that you might be issued a citation, or even arrested.

Enter the new I'm Getting Arrested app for your HTC EVO or other Android device. Inspired by an actual Occupy Wall Street incident, this app allows you to save a custom text message in advance, which you can then broadcast to your family, friends, and impromptu legal team at a single push of a button. It's quicker and simpler than trying to save a draft of a text message, and you can imagine that time would certainly be of the essence if you are about to be corralled into a police car.

This app isn't just for occupiers, though. You can use it if you're a rambunctious Tea Partier, an anti-war protester, a pro-war demonstrator, or if you just regularly do stupid things that put you in arrestable situations. Heck, you can even use it as a shortcut for sending any type of mass text message; just don't be obnoxious about it.

I'm Getting Arrested is incredibly quick and easy to set up. About the only thing that's missing is native Facebook and Twitter integration, but you can still update your social networks if you use their respective texting features.

No matter how you use this app, please, stay safe this weekend.
