Update on 2015 National “Chalk the Police State” Day Locations

Tears Whiny Authoritarianism vs ChalkThe Third Annual Chalk the Police State Day events are all set to go tomorrow, Saturday July 18th. Hopefully, you’ve already seen Ademo’s recent post with advice and tips and are already all set to go for tomorrow. Because of the ease and impromptu nature of chalk protests it’s not too late to get involved in your own town, though.

In fact, even Cop Unblock got in on the chalking fun a few days ago. So here is a current list of all the cities that will be participating. If there is already a group chalking in your city, you should join them. If there isn’t you should round up some friends that care about police accountability and get out there.

Note: this year Chalk the Police State Day will be dedicated to Brian Sumner, an awesome CopBlocker from Fresno, who is actually on trial right now on bogus vandalism charges stemming from a chalk protest he did last year. Since chalk doesn’t do any actual damage and it has been ruled several times, including by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (which has jurisdiction over Fresno), that chalk messages are protected free speech under the First Amendment and that something that simply requires a little cleaning up isn’t considered property damage, what Brian is really being charged with is hurting the delicate feelings of the police.

Of course, it looks bad for them if they right that on a police report. So they have to make stuff up and waste the courts’ time and your money on ridiculous charges. (If you are in the Fresno area, the courthouse where this nonsense is being held would be a good location for a Fresno Chalk the police State Day event.#JusSayin)

Current List of Cities Participating
