Charges against an Occupy Orlando protestor jailed for writing on a city sidewalk with chalk were dropped on Wednesday during a hearing
Orlando police arrested Timothy Osmar on December 22 after he was spotted (via a police surveillance camera) writing on a city sidewalk with piece of chalk.
He then spent THREE WEEKS in jail for violation of a city ordinance without bond.
The city said the time Osmar spent in jail was equivalent to the time he would have served for violating the city ordinance. Therefore, the case was dismissed.
The messages on the sidewalk read “All I want for Christmas is a revolution. OCCUPY.” and "the revolution will not be televised"
In November, Osmar was arrested during Occupy Charlotte near his Fort Mill, South Carolina home for wearing a mask in public.
Timothy is now a free man, and said he wants his chalk back.
Give the man his chalk.
Lmao at the last note, but seriously?
Chalk writing in public?
