Breaking: Russell Kanning Arrested on Chalking Warrant


Russell arrested in NH, 2006

A report this morning by Kat Kanning relays the unfortunate news that Russell Kanning has been arrested on federal warrants on what are likely chalk related charges (or failure to pay fines related to chalking).

Suddenly alone in a truck stop in MO. We had a headlight go out. They found warrants for Waco and NH chalking incidents. Background checks hadn’t found the warrants, so Russell thought they’d been dropped. Too late at night for me to talk to anyone. They say there’s no bond, they’re dragging him off to TX or NH.

Russell has been arrested and ticketed for chalking FREE BRADLEY MANNING on a retaining wall at the federal building in Concord, NH and he was arrested in Waco, TX while chalking in support of Nazry Mustakim, who was facing deportation at the time but has since won his freedom to remain in the US. Kat was the first person videorecorded being arrested on FreeConcordTV in the blog’s debut video Federal War on Chalk Begins.

  1. Wow. Another chalking arrest right after Santa was arrested for chalking in Austin.

  2. How soon before we hear calls for a limit on how many pieces of chalk a single box of chalk may hold?

  3. Chalk doesn’t write on things, people write on things. We need to ban people.

  4. I hear Bradley Manning has been released too. Guess Russell’s chalk did the trick đŸ˜‰

  5. I know Santa went out on an impulse to buy the chalk and in the same day used it to commit the crime. A 72 hour waiting period would allow Santa to cool off before receiving the chalk. This should go a long way to stem this latest crime wave.
