    I would like to understand your position more, as I think there is merit in aspects of street art. However, your defense of graffiti in many of these threads consists of only telling us that we’re old, we’re outsiders, we’re out of touch, we don’t get it. Well, make us get it. Make us understand if you want to defend it. A prime example- you don’t refute that there are a lot of adults or people of relative privilege who are tagging private property.

    I am not clueless. I remember how you used to beef with pbj, now they are your friends? You are a clown Coreroc.



    Rob Garrison must be back from Chicago for the holiday’s. He’s been leaving his tag all around the city the last few days.

    Columbus Graffiti Sends Gang Messages With Symbols, Designs
    Thursday November 15, 2012 11:21 AM

    COLUMBUS, Ohio – Gang-related vandalism can be found spray painted in various areas of Columbus. Much of it is meant to send a message, according to experts who decode the graffiti.

    “You’ve got Bloods, Crips, People Nation. You’ve got Nortenas, Sorenos. There are some Latin Kings,” explained Franklin County Sheriff Deputy Charley Brown.

    We are dealing with graffiti issues in Olde North (although no graffiti from that area appeared on last night’s news). The threat of court or jail always prevented me from defacing other people’s property when I was a teen, but I wonder just how effective it would be in our situation. I often suspect bored kids from New Albany or Bexley are doing it, mimicking the gang symbols they see in the paper or on the news. If these kids are caught, deep-pocketed parents will see to it that the matter disappears.

    Real gang members would not be deterred by threats of imprisonment. The possibility of getting caught adds to the thrill. In our worst neighborhoods, and in gang circles, going to jail is bar mitzvah (“Today I am a man!”) and exponentially increases the “street cred.”
