Los Angeles Police Arrest Numerous People for Chalking

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com

Los Angeles police said Friday that they have arrested numerous people for chalking downtown in the weeks leading up to ArtWalk. Protesters organized a "Chalk Walk" during Thursday's monthly ArtWalk in downtown Los Angeles to "celebrate our right to free speech and remind the LAPD and the city of Los Angeles that chalking is NOT a crime." Los Angeles Police has been arresting people who have marked downtown with chalk. The chalkers have been targeting the area around the Central City Assn, as the "lobby group of the 1%," according to a handout distributed at ArtWalk. After about nine arrests for vandalism on the sidewalk and buildings, LAPD pulled back "because it was getting dangerous for the officers."
