Manny Castro Arrested For Chikin Graffiti
Police in Torrance, California have arrested artist and activist Manny Castro for spray-painting "Tastes Like Hate" on the wall of a local Chick-Fil-A outlet last week.
Manuel Castro was taken into custody about 7 p.m. Wednesday on suspicion of vandalism after Torrance police detectives found him in West Hollywood, police said. A news release said detectives are "still actively investigating the incident" and working to identify another person of interest who may have been involved. The message painted in black letters appeared last Friday at the eatery near Hawthorne Boulevard and 182nd Street as the fast-food chain prepared for protests nationwide over its president's stance on gay marriage. It was accompanied by a picture of a cow holding a paint brush, which is borrowed from the company's marketing campaign.When was the last time somebody was arrested for a single act of graffiti? Obviously anti-gay hate groups pressured the Torrance police into this ridiculous action. The above-linked article was just gleefully tweeted out by NOM.
