    crash teams are still around? i thought they got shut down...

    gang patrol- usually programs like this, they go around photographing graff (cuz we all know that all graff kids are in gangs... we all ruthless killas and shee-it). now when they finally catch you, they have pictures of everything of yers they could find. Now yer not just getting charged with the one piece you got caught doing, yer getting charged with eveything you've ever done. however, in my experience, this shit rarely holds up. if you actually go to court, and they've brought up yer gang patrol profile, just say you bite... "oh yeah, uh, those old ones aren't me, this guys just my hero. i wanna be just like him..."

    Yup, I heard bout them fooz, they try to keep tabs and bust kats on some ill shit, but as it was mentioned, it wont hold up, this only werks if you cave in and confess! So if they pull that shit, just denie it! Say shit like..."Paint!?! What paint? i didnt do that! Oh the paint on my hands? well, its from huffing! Yeah, dats da ticket!" (lol) id rather get caught on some dumb shit then give up my lifestyle. But if your caught redhanded, well get a good lawyer, is all i can say.:D

    I haven't been caught since 1985. Lucky for me. I had just started rocking a new name and I was still a minor.

    Cops kept asking me if i knew who DEMO41 was. (it was me :D ) I said "I never heard of him".

    The days of paying fines and community service are over now that I'm no longer a minor and Graff is a felony.

    All graffiti is flicked and catalogued for the specific purpose of coming down REAL hard on a muhfucker. The stakes have risen for the art of destruction.
    Are you down to stay up?

    I am.....

    gang pats / graff squads are just dumb and gay , there evidence never holds up because its not proof , it is only circumstantial at best ........just dont get caught .....problem solved / avoided

    well if you think about the definition of a gang, its just a group of people, with some type of similar interests. crews in essence are nothing more than gangs. while we all know they are not all about violence and shootings and drugs (which unfortunately does happen a lot inside graffiti as well), it is easy for the media and the government to villify graffiti and writers just by calling them out as gang members. and it makes the local law enforcement as well as average joe schmoe civilian want to do as much as possible to catch writers.
