For Stephanie Robinette

Stephanie Robinette, a breast-feeding mother, sprays cops with her breast milk as they attempt to arrest her in Delaware, Ohio.

I was traveling back from a graffiti festival in New York City and stopped in Ohio for the night. While enjoying a morning coffee I noticed an article on the front page of the local newspaper. Stephanie Robinette, a schoolteacher and mother was arrested for charges of assault with a bodily fluid. I thought now that’s really something to look forward to if I ever decide to become a mother. She became my new hero and I made this to honor her courage and resourcefulness.
