Two protesters arrested after chalking 'black preborn lives matter' outside Planned Parenthood clinic

Two anti-abortion activists were arrested Saturday morning after writing “black preborn lives matter” outside of a Planned Parenthood building.

Writing the phrase in chalk on the sidewalk outside of a Planned Parenthood site in Washington, D.C., was part of an event held by Students for Life of America and the Frederick Douglass Foundation, according to the Daily Caller.

“I’m gonna tell you now that if you continue chalking, you will be placed under arrest for defacing property,” a police officer could be heard saying to two of the protesters at one point.

“Every Saturday, people are here chalking, and you are taking somebody, young people, and arresting them because they are simply putting ‘Black preborn lives matter?’ You’ve gotta be joking,” one man said to the police.

Protesters could also be heard chanting, “Black preborn lives matter.”

Michele Hendrickson, eastern regional director of Students for Life, said, “We are moving on with our event today. That is not going to stop us. If anything, this just added some fuel to our fire.”

Yet another case of selective enforcement of our laws. I guess it's OK to use paint to place a slogan on a street while blocking traffic. A slogan that will not easily be washed away by rain. But if, God forbid, you put your message in chalk on a sidewalk, interfering with absolutely nobody and using chalk that will wash away with the next rain, you are worthy of being arrested. Perhaps they should have started fire to the building and the police may have looked away/

To the Left, the Constitution is selective...Political messages can be painted on the roads with complete government passes AS LONG AS that government agrees with it...

This works with the 2nd Amendment as well...Has anyone heard any Lefties demand gun-control, recently, pointing to the rioters and Antifa?...

there is a law against protesters coming within so many feet of an abortion clinic. I disagree with it but you can be arrested for crossing it.

That is now what they were arrested for. Do you have anything else that you would like to add?

Can't have any psychos protesting the murder of unborn babies now, can we?

Whines, retorts, and cranio-rectal responses from unborn baby murder advocates will be entertained for a while. Commence la connerie.

they were committing a crime; it is possible they impeded access which is against the law. I don't like a clinics period but no this was not picking and choosing. there was a law on the books re clinics and as we all know cops are supposed to enforce laws. if a complaint was called in they showed up and critiqued what laws if any were being violated. they found one or some and proceeded accordingly.

Once again, they were not arrested for picketing or protesting in front of an abortion clinic. They were arrested for defacing public property with chalk on a concrete sidewalk. Meanwhile, "peaceful protesters" are spray painting monuments, painting slogans on public streets, burning buildings, looting and rioting and the police look the other way.

Yet, they decide to arrest a couple of people writing a message on a sidewalk with SIDEWALK CHALK!

I would suspect that these actions were directed by the local elected officials (for you Salty, this means the mayor).

As mentioned over in the political cartoon thread
minor infractions like this are a waste of Police time and only serve to have a chilling effect on people exercising their rights.
protesters ... no matter what their aims .. should not be arrested for these NON-crimes or Non-crimes of inconvenience.

part of the problem is that there are to many so-called "laws". america is becoming one big "community standards" nightmare world.

Can't to this, can't do that, get a permit to walk your dog, sell lemonade, plant a bush, park on the street, chalk up the sidewalk etc etc. Unless the authorities decide to look the other way.


bbut it's a free country ... as long as you get a permit right?
