In a video that was tweeted, Warner DePriest and Erica Caporaletti were approached by police, warned and soon arrested.

The pro-life activists say obtained a permit to assemble and a verbal affirmation that their chalk artwork was permitted; however, DC police a permit to put a message on the street was not issued.

The Students for Life of America president stated in an interview,

. . . What was happening was viewpoint discrimination . . . We have a mayor here in Washington, D.C., that painted the streets ‘Black Lives Matter,’ that allowed activists associated with the Black Lives Matter organization to then go without the permit and [in] permanent paint, paint ‘Defund the Police’ . . .

SFLA is currently pursuing legal action.
