Molly Crabapple Gets Out Of Jail, Gets On Al-Jazeera

We reported how, yesterday morning, cartoonist and comic book creator Molly Crabapple was arrested as part of the Occupy Wall Street protest in Manhattan’s financial district, up until she was in the police van. This is what happened next;

love you all. God jail is boring. #s17 #ows

The women’s section was totally threatened with a night in the tombs for singing Solidarity Forever.

On line to get my things on the way out, I was in between a reporter for the Boston Phoenix and an elderly couple, one of whom was a priest

Seriously, I am reading over these tweets and I fucking love all of you. THANK YOU

So, here’s how it went down. I’m standing on the sidewalk. Officers start grabbing the arms of women, pulling them into the street

At first I thought they just wanted us to cross, and were being forceful. I ask if I’m free to go, and my hands are cuffed behind my back

I got the hottest jail support. fucking overwhelmed, guys. There are other brave people in jail now who are going to need #jailsupport too
