Woman Charged In Snowball Fight Gets Her Own Facebook Page

freemariaMaria Louis Lewis, the woman charged with assaulting a police officer with a snowball, has officially become a political least on Facebook. Free Maria! has at the moment 229 members. As one member put it on the Free Maria! wall:

"you're not a *real* political prisoner until you get a facebook group."

So true.

The gist from members: This. Is. So. Fucked. Up. Here's a sampling from Maria's freedom fighters:

* "From snowmaggedon to Greece, fuck the police!"

* "Missing you! Stay strong & organize with them prisoners."

* "pshhh felony charges.....FTP..... you dont bring a gun to a snowball fight"

Aside from posting support, the Facebook group may want to pivot toward providing, um, legal support. Like tracking down witnesses, collecting donations for attorney fees, etc.

Unless, Louis Lewis doesn't need any help at all. Maybe her case will be thrown out. We're checking on her status.

UPDATE, 5 P.M.: Her name is Maria Lewis, not Louis.

    I went to the 'Free Maria' facebook page and it's just as I thought, by looking at her so-called supporters. Nothing but a bunch of spoiled white trust fund babies, who think it's, COOL and TRENDY to live in the big city.

    The type who think, black people are so interesting and how amusing they are to me, just like something out of National Geographic.

    The type of people not from here but from some small ant hill town in the mid-west, isn't interesting and fun to be here amoung all these diverse people, wow how narley!

    The type after telling a racist joke, then will go on to say that, I'm not a racist, I have alot of Africian American and Latino friends!

    The type who feel that they can break the law to suit them and then curse the police by calling them, "PIGS" and other things when laws are enforced.

    Most are here getting a higher education, are not a permanent resident, I say and alot of people who LIVE HERE PERMANENTLY SAY, GO BACK HOME TO MOMMY AND DADDY!

    Rick, you live in a dream world.

    If you don't think it's cool to live in the city then don't live there.

    I have many friends with trust funds and not one of them lives in the city, they own condos in Ballston and Bethesda. You don't know any trust fund kids, so you're just full of s**t and a liar.

    So now that it's accepted you're a liar, I can ignore your ignorance.
