Bikes-against-Bush creator arrested in NYC
I have been unable to find — after an admittedly brief search — any later information about Joshua Kinberg's arrest than this story from nyc.indymedia.org:
Bikesagainstbush creator Joshua Kinberg was arrested while taping an interview with MSNBC's Ron Reagan in Manhattan Saturday afternoon.
Kinberg was stopped by police while demonstrating the bicycle for the television interview. His bicycle is a high-tech graffiti writer, using chalk to print anti-Bush political messages sent by people via the internet. Apparently there was a question of whether or not the sprayed messages were a defacement of property.
Seems pretty harmless to me — not to mention protected by the First Amendment. Doesn't the NYPD have any real criminals to track down? [thanks to Mike Reusch]
