Sidewalk chalking provokes police - Napa Woman Cites Free Speech

Amy Larson was arrested Sept. 11 for chalking the sidewalk on the First Street bridge near Main Street.

Amy Larson readily admits writing “9/11 Truth” and “9/11 Truth Now” in chalk on the First Street sidewalk over Napa Creek.“I just want people to think for themselves,” said Larson, 29. “I believe we’ve lost a lot of civil liberties since the 9/11 attacks. I’m really concerned about that. “This is political free speech,” added Larson, who says the investigation into the terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. should be reopened. Her chalk writing — which occurred Sept. 11, the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks — got Larson arrested on suspicion of vandalism.

In the cop's defense....

What may look like harmless prankster-ism to you and me may have caused a much deeper problem. How can chalk damage the sidewalk? Surely it will wash off with the first rain, won't it? Well, modern science has recently found interactions that aren't quite so obvious on a surface level. There is now a new science called Nanotechnology which deals with interactions at a molecular, even atomic level. Take Nano-thermite for example.....

¡Viva la Revolución!

You mean

the sidewalk might implode?! Oh no!

I always liked this video...

I don't know where this woman was arrested....

I don't know where, or by what agency Amy Larson was arrested but she was held in the Napa County Jail. Elizabeth Emmett

People v Amy Larson

I saw her interviewed on Alex Jones. She seems like an earnest young woman with a political conscience.
