At the Chalk Walk in LA

My friend is a preschool teacher who went out to the protest today. She brought a couple of boxes of street chalk, the sort her students use, and a bunch of oatmeal raisin cookies for other protesters. She was there when the police went crazy and started corralling people and she was shoved and hit with batons. Right now she’s posted she is safe, but she’s still stranded in the middle of downtown because the LAPD has locked everything down. One of the last things she texted to a friend before everything went down was this:

“Actually I can tell you they put on riot gear before anything was thrown. I can tell you that they corralled me in. I’m telling you right now I begged a cop to let me go…and he told me to run.”
