A Bristol student has been charged with criminal damage after writing civil liberties slogans on a pavement in chalk, police confirmed today.
I wonder if he'd have been arrested if he was drawing a hop-scotch pattern on the pavement? Maybe the slogans he wrote were offensive?
The first read: "Liberty. The right to question it. The right to ask: Are we free?"
The second said: "As the buildings go up, the wages go down."
Nope. Maybe the chalk was somehow permenant?
Paul Saville, 23, a second-year sociology and criminology student at the University of the West of England, is alleged to have written two messages on pavements in Broadmead using water soluble chalk.
How can it be criminal damage if he hasn't damaged anything?
Careful what you say about the state.
