Well nice, because I'm picturing your brains on a white canvas... illegal, or art? Oh wait, it's art!

I can only hope it was one of those Flatmo monstrosities. They all need some upgrading! Good work and thanks! I'm happy for the improvement!

Ah you all are sooo mean. This guys has rights. I am sure there is some kind of liberal grant to fund his defense. Who knows maybe he will get a doctors note explaining that he has to paint graffiti and ruin other peoples property. It makes sense, in Humboldt that is...lol

Stupid ass, guess welfare should start buying these no loads art supplies too.

this is a classic example of a stupid graffiti writer giving every legit one a bad name.
There is only ONE kind of "legit graffiti writer" - the kind that GETS PERMISSION from the property owner before painting it.

you know graffiti doesnt have to be done on a building. just because this person chose to write his graffiti on a building illegally does not make graffiti any less of an art,(i saw his and think it sucks for the record)graffiti is a style of art, not just the act of illegally writing on a building, but only people who clearly have zero appreciation of art and artists, and have zero ability to express themselves thru any sort of visual medium, would be as stupid enough to say some of the things ive seen here.

If it's art, then perhaps the lad could learn about respecting art.

I'm surprised that he was arrested.
The Sheriff's department won't arrenst anyone vandalizing mailboxes!
And if they know who vandalized a mailbox and the person admits it but offers to fix it, there is no arrest.
These people should have these acts recorded with an arrest.
Artwork my arss!
The Sheriff's department do nothing about what they call petty crimes. There is the "good ol' boys system in the Eureka Sheriff's office.

Personally I love a tasteful display of community art but what kind of jackass thinks he can pull the "art" card when he tags over legal murals? Some pathetic excuse!

Best said...it's art only if it's legal.
Ask permission or get a permit or go die somewhere.
I love good art. Maybe I can have him and tie him upside down on a crucifix and spray paint him.
Set it up on the courthouse lawn.
Now that's art!

Nobody has a right to deface another person's property. Art is not a valid excuse for vandalism. Other writers here agree. Don't you?

I have exceptions with police but in their defense there are only so many on duty (individual cops don't work 24 hr shifts). There are only so many on the force in a large area. Though we do not like petty/vandal crimes, police are involved in more serious crimes most of the time.
They don't always rush off to nab a vandal if they are in the process of being at a serious accident or robbery, shooting, etc.
They cannot be everywhere all the time.

To the idiots whining about the cops: Do you really think the police are everywhere there is some crime happening? If so, there would be no crime, they would just arrest someone as soon as they started committing a crime...get real, they can't just sit and wait until some moron starts doing something and never patrol their beat... Those who complain about the cops are the first ones to call if someone's dog c raps on their lawn... And to the other idiot in Chico: I grew up in the "valley" and that is the real hole - why do you think they all come over here to cool off and take a vacation? Not everyone here is a loser that just mooches off society and commits crimes all day...they just give a bad name to those who don't... If anyone had any type of morals anymore, they would know you don't get to just ruin other people's property just because you think you have some right to do so...

To the idiot cop worshiping freaks: just try calling them the next time somone craps in your punchbowl. Since you are usually the ones on the horn over every little thing.I am just sick of paying through the nose for a service that is not provided to any recognizable degree. and then hearing how under funded and overworked the cops are. That is the biggest load of sht ever peddled to you boneheads and you suck it up like it's honey.You guys are as dumb as they come.
