This is my good friend, Taylor.

She was the first to be arrested at the art walk in Downtown LA on Thursday, July 12th. Her bail was set at $5,000. She was in jail for two and a half days before she was released. 

As she described to me what happened, “I was handed some purple sidewalk chalk. I was drawing a bunny on the floor when someone yelled, ‘Taylor! Look back!’ I turned around to see five cops running towards me. I was rushed by them. After I was arrested, they mentioned that I was nice and they were unsure as to why they were told to target me.”

Her hearing is on August 8th. She’s being charged with vandalism. Naturally, I will be there to support her. 

If this isn’t a tell-tale sign of a police state, I’m not sure what is.
