Austin Police Arrest Santa Claus

Seems the PR department at the Austin Pig Detachment didn’t train these fine officers in the art of optics.  From the Occupy Austin press release:

Acclaimed Arctic peace activist Kris Kringle, better known to the world as Santa Claus, was arrested early this afternoon at the Texas State Capitol. Claus was arrested while chalking Christmas wishes for the world, offered by children and other holiday merry makers.

“Today I saw the jolly red elf at the Capitol, cheerfully requesting that children write their wishes for a better world in chalk on the sidewalk. Santa said his favorite word was ‘Community.’ Various children wrote words like ‘Peace,’ ‘Friendship,’ and ‘Grace,’” said Occupy Austin’s Lainie Duro, a witness to the arrest.

After wrestling Santa to the ground and placing handcuffs on him, State Troopers also arrested Corey Elf after he used sidewalk chalk to write “Free Santa.” Both were arrested for Criminal Mischief, while Santa may face additional resisting arrest charges.

    This shouldn’t be getting that much attention. Cops have done much much worse recently

  • JollyT says:

    It’s sick to think that somebody is getting arrested for something that isn’t hurting anyone, that isn’t destructive in any sense of the word, and isn’t even theft or property damage in anyway. I’m surprised by how many people just stood there and watched without saying anything at all. Desensitized or afriad, this is how we let them take and keep control.

    Americans: Fucking idiots.

    Where has reason gone. These officers are way out of line and frighten me. If they can treat some like this for an “offense” that is harmless, I’m starting to believe that they are abusive to thugs.

    I am an over 60 upper income person who is incensed at the way they treated the man.

    I just want OUT. If this is what America is about, I don’t want it. I don’t want consumerism, I don’t want work to be the central focus of my life, and I don’t want to be OK with events like this. I am very afraid of the United States now and have no wish to be here. And I am no survivalist, I own no guns, and I have no anti American tendencies or plans. I am just afraid as I believe there will be more issues like this in the future, more loss of right, more reasons to be afraid of America.
