Have you heard about the Santa of Austin, TX? He got arrested for chalking messages of peace and joy on the sidewalk with a bunch of kids. If you haven't checked the video out yet, go have a look: [link]

I'm sharing this, because cases like these need the public's attention. Police officers gone bad often still enjoy some sort of immunity, unless they cause a public outrage. This needs as many views as it can get, so at least the bad cops in this video can make way for some good ones.

Welcome to the police state. Now is for people to finally wake up and smell the tyranny. Alex Jones has been warning people of a soon coming police state and people just laughed at him and called him crazy when in truth Alex Jones was right all along.

Public positions really should do an MRI scan for psychopathology.
Seems foolish to not do it, especially at our technological level.
Keep them monkeys in check. Which i imagine has something to do with our current shit circumstance, the assumption that since we are sentient means we aren't animals, which is bullshit.

yeah I dont even celebrate Christmas but I think this is absolute insanity. I live near Austin and TExas police in general are all just power hungry dickwads. They said it was because "the capitol is a public building and cant have religiously biased messages near or around it to separate church and state" but what the hell do you see in this video right in front of the god damn capitol? an F-ing Christmas tree! Idiots. Its a public sidewalk that that dude pays for out of his wages. He has every right to right out whatever he wants. Its called freedom of speech.

Writing chalk on the sidewalk is graffiti, graffiti is illegal.

If he wanted to do this then he should have cleared it with his local council first and gotten a permit, it's not as if they'd likely say be denied to do something as innocent as this. As it is though, he was clearly in the wrong.
