Metropolitan Police Department officers are shown in this video screen capture, just before they arrest two pro-life demonstrators with Students for Life of America in Northeast D.C. on August 1, 2020. The demonstrators were chalking the public sidewalk Saturday morning, an act an officer in the video said violated a law against defacing public property. For their part, the demonstrators claim they have done sidewalk chalkings every Saturday for the past few weeks without incident, and that the arrest is in violation of their free-speech rights.
