Police Arrest College Students Over Chalk on the Sidewalk
At Wellesley, arrest over chalk writing leaves a mark – The Boston Globe: Apparently some Wellesley College students were arrested because of making peace signs in chalk in the town’s center.
Simply unbelievable. My kids use chalk to mark up our sidewalk all the time. The first rain and it’s gone or it’s simple to wash away when the sidewalks are cleaned anyways.
While I could see this reaction and arrest for spray paint or something like that, this seems like a harmless way for a few college girls to express themselves peacefully. Too bad Wellesley police have nothing better to do with their time that waste it on stuff like this.
