The Sucklord Got Arrested Accessory Pack for Charity

    Of course The Sucklord would come up with the most unique item to auction for charity.  Beyond being something that is surely interesting, it might be one of the most compelling pieces of protest art I've seen in recent memory.  It's raw and poignant and irreverent and uncomfortable which is everything great art should be.

   The story behind it is that while participating in a peaceful protest, The Sucklord was attacked by a police officer and required hospitalization before his arrest.  The reason he wasn't more seriously injured is because another officer stepped in and stopped his colleague from continuing the assault.  This collection documents what it takes to enact social change in our country, which we have seen happen on different levels in response.  It's something different from someone who is known more for his tongue firmly planted in cheek approach to art, but also something I could see as hanging in a museum one day as an important statement of social change.

    If you want to own this grouping or artifacts, you need to head to this link and place your bid on eBay.  One hundred percent of the proceeds are being donated to the Brooklyn Bail Fund to help out people that find themselves in the same situation.
