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.

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.

Texas State Troopers are pure ASSHOLES. Happen to see the video of the female trooper sticking her finger in the bum hole and vagina of two females at a traffic stop for throwing out a cigarette butt?

Texas State Troopers undergo training as hard or harder than marines and many of them are actually ex marines whom have no other thoughts than to serve the word of their superiors.

Yeh, natural wild pigs they are, or well... at least the pigs are GOOD for food; while meat of these demons is not healthy even for dogs list they will go-rabies.

But my point here is that they know for a fact that they are unredeemable, and they know deep inside that if they stop doing what they do, they will start burning in hell strait away.

Yes, almost everything is illegal in America. Drinking raw milk is illegal, collecting rain water on your own property is illegal, writing on the sidewalk with chalk is illegal, marijuana is illegal, online poker is illegal, children setting up a small lemonade stand is illegal and protesting against war will get you labeled as a domestic terrorist.

Only a couple years ago, I used to think people that were skeptical and distrusting of government were nuts. Now, with Santa Claus being arrested in front of children, Patriot Act, NDAA and drones patrolling our skies, I don't see how anyone could trust the government. Officers, like the ones featured in the video of the OP, will obediently follow orders, without giving the orders a second thought. If Americans allow themselves to be disarmed, Americans will not be able to resist when "they" start rounding up families into concentration camps. Don't ever think that it can't happen here.

Yeah but that was the whole point of it, the guy is actually an occupytard, and it was one of those public buildings you don't do political actions outside, he used the kids as a human shield, hoping the cops wouldn't bust him and the whole overdramatic reaction was also manipulative. THis is political theatre, not a simple santa.

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.

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...

As long as they are not righting something obscene, people should be free to write on the sidewalk with chalk. It's not like it's permanent, a bucket of water or light rain will take it out.

Ba-humbug to the police who arrested Santa. Or any person with chalk for that matter.

No, This is a law of a local municipality. As a tax paying citizen in my current city, I also do not want anyone "Chalking" the public buildings that I pay for.

Also, given Occupy's reputation, it was just a matter of time before that Santa started drawing vaginas for "womens reproductive rights" or Che Guevara shit. I can promise you that this santa had malicious intent. The video was clearly chopped to make it seem completely innocent.

The real shame is that the asshole in the suit was trying to influence children in order to further his own agenda.
