STOCKTON, CA - For a second time, adult protestors wrote in chalk all over the Stockton City Hall sidewalk. For a second time, city hall called police. This time, three officers showed up: a lieutenant, a sergeant, and an officer.
"They came out to educate the Occupy protestors on the municipal codes and the laws they may be violating, and we're letting them know we are taking a zero tolerance approach," said Stockton Police Department spokesman Officer Joe Silva.
City hall spokeswoman Connie Cochran said the Occupy Stockton chalk protestors were "blocking the free and clear access to city hall" for people who were there to conduct business. Chalk graffiti is a misdemeanor.
