this is nonsense. Felonies are dangerous crimes and spraypaint is no danger to anyone.
What do you mean felonies are not dangerous crimes? People who have been convicted of a felony are usually habitual offenderís crime or someone who has done something greatly wrong that requires them to be convicted of a felony, assault with a deadly weapon for instance. No, a felony may not be required in this case, but the fact the bum was defacing property is an issue to dealt with.

But you can agree that this is not a case where he needs to be thrown into the same group and be labeled a felon. For actions like this retribution should be cleaning up all that he has done and extensive probation but no, not felony charges and jail time.

And as for one of the first comments asking to deport him...please, shut up. How can you make a generalization like that? Because of his name? Thanks, thanks a lot.

I agree, a felony for this is nuts. I agree, he probably is a citizen and the generalization due to name should not be tolerated. He just doens't want to work

This guy has shown he doesn't care about laws or other people's property (at least 20 separate properties defaced by this mope.) He should be charged with a felony and face jail time.

do people that tag buildings think people even care who the hell they are?
no, they don't care if anyone knows who they are. hence the aliases.

and for all the other people that complain so much about tagging, try doing something yourself. the kid didn't kick your puppy or anything.
