I am not advocating anyone, but there is missing part in this video. And you should ask what is not the author showing us.

The building behind looks quite important, it could be some office/court house/... with more restricted rules. The pathwalk is probably property of town. I can very easily imagine situation (according to calm acting of first two police officers and attention seeking Santa) "sir, you cannot do that here, could you please move?" - "no, of course not, we live in a free country and you have no right to tell me what to do and what not to do!" Because we have seen so many similar videos here.

This seems to be the story behind it.

Troopers Arrest Santa Claus & Elf for Chalking Wishes At Capitol

Occupy Austin calls for Free Santa Solidarity Rally 6pm at Travis County Jail

Austin, Texas December 21, 2012: Acclaimed Arctic peace activist Kris Kringle, better known to the world as Santa Claus, was arrested early this afternoon at the Texas State Capitol. Claus was arrested while chalking Christmas wishes for the world, offered by children and other holiday merry makers.

"Today I saw the jolly red elf at the Capitol, cheerfully requesting that children write their wishes for a better world in chalk on the sidewalk. Santa said his favorite word was 'Community.' Various children wrote words like 'Peace,' 'Friendship,' and 'Grace,'" said Occupy Austin's Lainie Duro, a witness to the arrest.

After wrestling Santa to the ground and placing handcuffs on him, activists also arrested Corey Elf after he used sidewalk chalk to write "Free Santa." Both were arrested for Criminal Mischief, while Santa may face additional resisting arrest charges.

Occupy Austin stands in solidarity with Santa Claus and his elf. Three members of Occupy Austin, Audrey Steiner, Corey Williams, and Jim Bird were arrested earlier in 2012 for chalk. Though they were held in Travis County Jail, they have not been charged with any crime, raising questions about whether Troopers are arresting activists to silence them.

Unless there is more to what is seen, the penalty does not fit the crime. It would have been the the police's best interest to make it widely known what the charge was.

Uuum...you might want to read the article that the video links to.

"Santa" is a very well known "Peace activist" outside the Tx state capitol in Austin where 3 "chalkers" were arrested earlier for doing the exact same thing.

Occupy Austin believes that "chalking" the area is not against the law blah blah freedom of expression, the actual law says differently and they were arrested for criminal mischief...just like they wanted to be.

Nice touch USING children's emotions dressing up like Santa Claus, but don't let that bother you...

Defacing government property? To me it doesn't matter if it's chalk or not. Would you want people writing on your house with chalk? Would it be ok just because it washes off?

I agree an arrest is over the top. Maybe a warning would have been best..

But Santa clearly has issues..

Why didn't they just give him a warning or 5 minutes to leave the property? The kids don't need to see that. Some kids are real sensitive about Santa.

Troopers Arrest Santa Claus & Elf for Chalking Wishes At Capitol

Occupy Austin calls for Free Santa Solidarity Rally 6pm at Travis County Jail

Austin, Texas December 21, 2012: Acclaimed Arctic peace activist Kris Kringle, better known to the world as Santa Claus, was arrested early this afternoon at the Texas State Capitol. Claus was arrested while chalking Christmas wishes for the world, offered by children and other holiday merry makers.

"Today I saw the jolly red elf at the Capitol, cheerfully requesting that children write their wishes for a better world in chalk on the sidewalk. Santa said his favorite word was 'Community.' Various children wrote words like 'Peace,' 'Friendship,' and 'Grace,'" said Occupy Austin's Lainie Duro, a witness to the arrest.

After wrestling Santa to the ground and placing handcuffs on him, activists also arrested Corey Elf after he used sidewalk chalk to write "Free Santa." Both were arrested for Criminal Mischief, while Santa may face additional resisting arrest charges.

Occupy Austin stands in solidarity with Santa Claus and his elf. Three members of Occupy Austin, Audrey Steiner, Corey Williams, and Jim Bird were arrested earlier in 2012 for chalk. Though they were held in Travis County Jail, they have not been charged with any crime, raising questions about whether Troopers are arresting activists to silence them.

Occupy Austin believes that the use of washable sidewalk chalk is constitutionally protected free speech, and several previous court rulings agree. The organization demands that the Texas State Preservation Board respect the free speech rights of chalkers, and that State Troopers halt arrests immediately.

Occupy Austin called for a Free Santa Rally to begin at 6pm at the Travis County Jail (500 W. 10th St) and to continue until Santa Claus and Corey Elf are released.
"DPS has overstepped all boundaries today and I will stand and wait for Santa. I hope he's out quick, I hear he still has a lot to do to get ready for Tuesday," said another witness, Christopher Michael, a member of the Occupy Your Capitol group.

About Santa Claus

Santa Claus, or Kris Kringle, is an internationally known child welfare and world peace activist. With the help of his many elves, Santa delivers gifts to good children all over the world while cultivating a sense of global togetherness and love. His busiest night, Christmas Eve, is just around the corner.

About Occupy Austin

Occupy Austin is a standing protest against the unjust and harmful power of large corporations over the world's economic and political systems and against threats to civil liberties and democracy at home and abroad. Our Occupation began on October 6, 2011 and continues to hold marches and events throughout the city.
