- Sarasota Police arrested a disabled Occupy Sarasota member Saturday afternoon for writing slogans in chalk on the sidewalks of Five Points Park.
The slogans included “Make love not war,” “Give peace a chance,” and “Go hippies.”
The half-dozen members
of the group who were at the park are furious, saying they obtained permission to write their messages from City Hall.
“This was chalk. It wasn't illegal,” said Occupy Sarasota member Paul Tuttle. “If you don't have money in this town, you'll be taken advantage of.”
