I understand that we are only talking about chalk here, but I think that we both know that there was more going on then a police officer walking up and catching someone drawing hop scotch on a side walk. When they asked her to stop she flopped down on the ground and just lay there.
And also, what does China have to do with this?

Why is it that almost 90% of the time, the people involved in these protests or the people who support them don't know the first thing about what constitutes free speech and public property?

Note that they were drawing political messages on Federal Property at a court house and refuse to stop when asked.
Disobeying a lawful order
As well as those people were clearly trying to get arrested to just draw attention to their non existant protest

I guess in China they would just execute you for drawing on the sidewalk,
but in the USA you are allowed to be considered a petty criminal for writing words in chalk on a public sidewalk.
