Occupiers gathered in downtown Los Angeles Thursday night for a “Chalk Walk” protest scheduled to coincide with the monthly ArtWalk. Here’s how Occupy LA described the peaceful night of sidewalk decorating:

Bring your creativity … and your glass bottles.

The organizers left out the part about violent riots, vandalizing city property and assaulting police officers. Fancy that.

Occupiers, of course, blame law enforcement.

Peaceful protesters like this?

Police were authorized to respond with non-lethal force and they did.

The Occupy side of the story:


So, they injured a female police officer by drawing with chalk? That’s some chalk, what with the shards of broken glass flying from it.

Oh, and just what were they drawing?
