Chalking Ticket Leads to Chalking Protest in Richmond, VA

Yesterday, Richmond, Virginia was the scene of a chalking demonstration organized in response to the $325 ticketing of a mother whose daughter had chalked rocks in a park on Belle Island. The ticketing occurred the Sunday prior, after the officer informed Susan Mortensen that her four year old daughter was ‘destroying property’.

Despite treating chalking as a violation in the park, as a group of activists chalked outside of the Richmond police headquarters on Friday, authorities did not intervene. Mortensen plans to fight the ticket in court. Linked below is the coverage from WTVR, which features the reporting journalist chalking on the rocks that the destruction of property charge is “pretty lame”.
