    The very talented Molly Crabapple drew/wrote about her arrest at Occupy Wall Street on September 17th for CNN. Check out her phenomenal drawings of her cell and of protesters and read her account of her jail time.

    At 1 Police Plaza in New York City, our cell was 5-by-7, freezing cold, with a padded bench just long enough for three of us to sit on. A fourth woman was curled on the floor. In the corner, there was a non-functioning sink and a toilet. When one woman needed to use it, we formed a line to block her from the male officers. In the 10 hours I was held, there was one meal: Four slices of bread in soggy Saran wrap, a packet of mayo and a mini carton of milk.
