Ding! San Diego Chalker Acquitted and Idiot Prosecutor Condemned by Mayor!

SAN DIEGO - A 40-year-old man was acquitted Monday of 13 misdemeanor vandalism charges that stemmed from protest messages written in chalk in front of three Bank of America branches in San Diego.

Jeffrey David Olson's attorney argued during the trial -- which garnered national attention -- that his client was engaging in a legal protest and was not maliciously defacing of property.

Olson could have faced up to 13 years behind bars if convicted of all counts. Jurors began deliberating Friday.

.........

The prosecution of Olson brought condemnation of the City Attorney's Office from Mayor Bob Filner, who called it a waste of time.


wow, San Diego!

1. Thank God. Putting messages in washable chalk in front of the offices of abusive

corporations is probably one of the few methods of peaceful protest we have left.

14. Oh god!

You can actually SEE the woven base at the part. He needs to update the color match, too.

Frankly he wasn't my first choice, but I'm glad I ended up voting for him. Just getting rid of the red light cameras made me a lifelong supporter.

Oh and WELCOME TO DU!! :wave:

17. And they are doing their best to try and bring him down.

The local stations have floated the idea of a recall already.

18. They won't get any traction

He's doing a great job, he's active in the community, something the local media is not. The Mayor was at a dedication to a peace park in my neighborhood last Saturday (North Park). He has massive support from the community that the press is overlooking.
