Chalk the Police State (July 18th) – Updated List of Cities

Chalk the Police State Wherever you Are.

Chalk the Police State Wherever you Are.

Tomorrow, July 18th, is the Second Annual “Chalk the Police State” day. For the second year, Nevada Cop Block has called for activists across the country to hold chalk protests in their own cities in solidarity with and to draw attention to the victims of police brutality and the lack of accountability for crimes and other forms of corruption within local police departments.

This year in particular is intended to shine a light on the lack of significant changes in regards to such accountability and the blatant examples of police abuses nationwide. In addition, it will serve as a statement that we will not tolerate police violence and murders within our communities and that we are not just going to go away unless some sort of meaningful reforms are instituted and police officers are held responsible for their actions in the same way everyone else would be.

For more on the background and reasons for the “Chalk the Police State” event see here, here, here, here, here, and here. Meanwhile, here is an update of the cities that will be participating this year. At this point, we have pretty solid confirmations from 12 cities with a good potential for at least 16 cities nationwide. BTW, even though it’s obviously very short notice at this point, it’s still not too late to add YOUR city to this list. One of the many advantages of chalk protests is the ease of organizing and carrying them out. Basically, all you really need is a few boxes of chalk, some dedicated friends, and a desire to get the message out that police brutality will not be tolerated in your communities. It’s quick, easy, and cheap enough for even a small group of motivated people to have a visible impact.

It’s Not Too Late to Celebrate “Chalk the Police State” Day in Your City!

It's tragic when anyone is murdered, even if it isn't one of the rare occasions when that person is a cop.

We hope that other cities will join us July 18th to make a statement about police brutality and demand accountability when police victimize people in their communities. Police corruption and misconduct is a nation-wide (international actually) problem and it’s only getting worse as time goes by. In addition, in spite the prevailing (and false) rationalizations for that increase in violence against citizens, police work is safer than it has ever been and is becoming safer all the time.

The mistreatment and abuse of you and your neighbors is inexcusable and needs to be stopped. Their record speaks for itself, though. They won’t regulate themselves or even hold the criminals in their midst accountable, after the fact. You need to take a stand and demand an end to the police state and its abuses before it’s too late.

A FaceBook event page has been set up to coordinate all of the different cities planning actions. If you have questions about setting up a chalk protest in your city, potential statements/slogans to write, questions of legality (it’s completely legal), etc. you can post them there. We would also like to have any local event pages link to that page, so we can keep track of who will be participating and allow people in those cities to coordinate with each other. That event page is located here: (National) Second Annual Chalk the Police State with the “Sunset 5” and in Solidarity with the Victims of Police Brutality, Repression, and Murder. Alternatively, you can also contact NVCopBlock.org’s contact page, if you are not on Facebook or just want to cutout the middle man.

    Well at least you got to post and respond regarding your experience, I have 3 Federal Court cases against law enforcement agencies and every single time I try to type a legal document on MICROSOFT WORD OR SOME OTHER LEGAL OR SOFTWARE FORUM…MYSTERIOUSLY THE DOCUMENT ABOUT THE ABUSES, OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE AND TOTAL CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS ARE DELETED SO THAT I AM UNABLE TO TURN THESE ITEMS ABOUT THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL ABUSES IN TO THE COURTS! NOW….WHO DO YOU THINK HAS DIRECT ACCESS TO MICROSOFT WORD DOCUMENTS AND THE TECHNOLOGY, TRAINING ANG CAPABLITY TO DELETE CRIMES THAT ARE BEING COMMITTED BY FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LOW ENFORCEMENT!!!??? MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY! THIS HAS BEEN THEIR PATTERN OF FEDERAL CRIMES FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS! THIS IS THE SAME MANNER OF UNDERHANDED CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES THAT SABOTAGED AND DESTROYED MY VIABLE AMERICAN BASED BUSINESSES!!! Somehow they just can’t get it throught their heaqds that it is NOT THERI JOB TO COMMIT CRIMES AND INJUSTICES AGAINST HUMANITY!

    I would like to add Newport Beach, California to the list above. I have lived in 20 states and the cops in California are simply shocking.

    • Kelly W. Patterson July 19, 2014 at 3:18 am #

      Sorry, I was too busy overnight to check back and add to the list, but I do hope you were able to get out and Chalk the Police State in Newport, too. If you have any photos, video, or commentary/statements (or links of such) about your experiences chalking, please send them to [email protected]. I’ll be compiling a summary of with reports from all the different cities that participated.

    The brain initiative is the great deception and one of the worst deceptions perpetrated on the citizens of the United States of America. State and Local law enforcement are implanting innocent citizens with a biochip. According to “A Note on Uberveillance” by MG & Katina Michael, it’s “like big brother on the inside looking out.” “Safeguards in a World of Ambient Intelligence” by Springer page 9 states, “law enforcement would have us believe that we can only be safe as long as they know where we are at all times, what we’re doing and what we are ‘thinking'”. It is such an invasion of privacy. They use the active denial system to make you think you are hearing voices – it has technology like the audio spotlight. Next they use Psyops like stalking, drugs, kidnapping, whatever they can to either put you in a “crisis stabilization ward” or a prison and steal your guns. They are targeting female Christians and military veterans. Go to Rutherford Institute and check out Brandon Raub. They don’t even lock them into property
    & evidence. Why? Because there is a Supreme Court Case by Justice Cardoza – Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospital,105 N.E. 92 (1914 ) that says anyone of sound mind and not a criminal has a right to say what goes in their body or on their body. They want to ensure there is no way you can get this off. No one in America wants this level of privacy invasion. In addition, it allows law enforcement the opportunity to torture you at will with sleep deprivation, heart attacks and other pains. The active denial system can murder without leaving a mark! The Bio Initiative Report with 2014 additions details all the cancers, diseases and disabilities it causes.
