Yesterday I saw public land become a crime scene. Hands handcuffed, they forced, the tall body, twisting arms, pushing head down, bending neck sideways, squashing and crunching bone density to sit small, fit into a vehicle: the backseat of their white car. How will this tall person sleep on a 1’-11 3⁄4” x 6’-3 5/16” white-jail bed?

The Jailbeds project is happening right now all over LA. Organized by Justice LA Now to fight the LA jail expansion plan. Watch out for the art beds, they are being dropped off.

The pics above documents the one dropped in Santa Monica.
