*Stans Gone Wild* Six People Arrested For Spray Painting "Free Lil Wayne And Lil Boosie" In Protest Of Rappers Jail Sentences


Nola.com Reports

Six people were arrested by the New Orleans Police Department Monday after allegedly spray-painting graffiti on a building in the French Quarter during an apparent protest over the incarceration of several local rap artists, according to police.

Off-duty police officers saw the suspects spray-painting "Free Lil Wayne" on the side of a building in the 900 block of Conti Street around 9 p.m. and notified the NOPD, according to spokesman Janssen Valencia.

New Orleans born rap star Dwayne "Lil Wayne" Carter, pleaded guilty in October to attempted weapons possession and expects to receive a one-year jail sentence. He is currently out on bond.

The men also placed a banner across Royal and Canal streets calling on authorities to release Torrence "Lil Boosie" Hatch, a Baton Rouge rapper who pleaded guilty in September to a marijuana possession charge and is currently in prison. The group also placed police barricades and metal garbage cans in the 100 block of Burgundy to halt traffic.

When officers arrived, the suspects fled but were apprehended nearby, Valencia said. The six subjects were charged with disturbing the peace, resisting arrest by flight and criminal damage to property.

Three of the suspects were listed as homeless, two were from Monroe and the third from Pennsylvania.

A street party highlighting the imprisonment of hometown heroes Lil Wayne and Lil Boosie as examples of how the police and prison industrial complex do not work.
These artists have brought happiness, hope, and strength through music to people around the world, and we think that putting them, or anyone else, in prison is not going to make us any safer.
There will be a sound system with great music and a festive atmosphere, so come in costume, bring party supplies, noisemakers, drums, silly string, chalk, and pictures of anyone you know in prison, to celebrate the day when we can reclaim their lives from prison, as our reclaimed space spreads!
What’s Wrong with prisons:
-Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the U.S., yet we are no safer.
-Louisiana has the highest arrest rate in the U.S., yet we are no safer.
-The Angola 3 are still in prison, yet we are no safer.
-We spend more on police and prisons, yet our communities are never protected from the violence that is poverty, war, racism, sexism, and homophobia. In fact, these communities are disproportionately targeted by the very system claiming to exist for their protection.
-We spend more on police, but no one protects our communities from the destruction of our homes for private hospitals, new condos, and “mixed-income” developments.
-And on the 10 year anniversary after the WTO was shown to be a criminal conspiracy of corporate and government interests by protesters in the streets of Seattle, we still have not been protected from it’s policies by the police and prison system. In fact, those systems have continued to enforce the very WTO policies that are harming communities across the world.
WE WANT TO END THIS CHARADE.
We are not going to demand any changes, because we want a world where we no longer have to beg those in power to listen to us. We are simply going to create a space in the streets where the failed police and prison system do not operate and are not welcome. A space where we can celebrate the beginning of the end of that system, and the beginning of a new world.
We hope to spread this new world far beyond these streets on this one night. Carry it with you to your neighborhood, to your work, to your school, to your city, state, and country, and liberate space from this system by organizing with others where ever you happen to find yourselves.
RECLAIM THE STREETS!
LIBERATE TERRITORY!
OCCUPY EVERYWHERE!
