    They made a mistake in their shouts at the police. It doesn’t matter that they chalk there every week. What matters is that their chalking is protected speech.

    They needed to clearly and succinctly explain why their conduct was protected speech and why arresting them was a violation of clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known.

    They needed to do that because violation of clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known defeats qualified immunity and makes the arresting officer liable in a civil lawsuit.

      Yes, but a decent lawyer can still work with this case and have a decent chance of defeating QI.

        Yes, I think there’s a good case either way.

        My point is that mindlessly shouting at the police accomplishes nothing.

    As far as I can tell, if the Police is about to arrest you, find a brick, throw it through a window and say “Black Lives Matter” and you’ll be let go with no charges.

      Or set fire to a federal building. That is now considered speech.

    BLM is going to backfire on blacks. Employers will be more willing to fight the stigma of not hiring blacks than to chance it and hire a radical that could destroy the company.

    Only approved speech is free.

    I was going to make a post, but everyone has already said everything I was going to say.
    How crazy. They can PAINT BLM garbage on the street, but these kids get arrested for chalk??? The cops are as dumb as a bucket of shit. What’s with them? Don’t they know who the enemy is???
    Maybe the cops are getting what they deserve. If they’re that stupid maybe they need to be defunded. This is a total waste of their time and effort.
    Aren’t there any GOOD cops anymore?
