    How injured have you gotten doing graf?

    Discussion started by Sun Dialect - Oct 12, 2001

    I was about 18 and I was bombing a freeway retaining wall on the I-78 in Tri-City near Vista, in So Cal. We had killed the wall earlier that night and came back to wreck it more for good measure. We had done like five fillys and tagged the shit out of the upper retainer wall. We went below to the retainer wall right next to the freeway (groung level) and did some throw-ups. That night we had probably spent 3 housr total including both missions. Our luck was running out quickly. We finished up the bombs on the lower retainer wall after being honked at and seen by a million people. We made our way up to the top where we had entered. We spent a little more time bombing the upper section before leaving...We returned to the spot where we came in. As I came around from the wall to hop the fence I saw 7 highway patrol cars lined up with all the cops out of their cars chilling and waiting for our stupid asses. I heard one of them say that's them "Get em'". Shit went down! We started to run to the bottom retainer wall where we had been bombing earlier and to our surprise there was a motor cycle cop patrolling the spot where we had been tagging. We decided to continue down to the freeway anyways. The cops up top were swarming and we had no where else to go accept right into the path of the motor cycle cop. So, as I was running and jumping down this 75 degree angle cliff I made a wrong move and ended up jumping into a drainage ditch off center at a weird angle...I broke my ankle in two places. Needless to say our asses were going to be hemmed up if we didn't keep going so I kept going and got to the freeway. We ran right in front of the Motorcycle pig and I dropped all my cans in the west bound lanes...We jumped the divider and got across the east bound lanes and then proceede to jump the fence into some bushes...Our plans were to take the frontage road to the Mall and get our homie to take us back to the car. Taht was parked near the scene...To our amazement the cops uptop never spotted us and how the Motorcycle Copper didn't see us I will never know? It was one of those nights you thank your lucky stars and are very happy for your freedom. We escaped the cops and a huge fine and jail time for the killings we did that night...I hobbled my crippled ass a few miles to the mall with the help of my good friend. We woke my homie up at 4 am and got him to drive us back to the crime scene where I then proceeded to drive my friend home with a broken ankle...the car was std. transmission and I had to use the clutch with my ankle. Shit hurt bad. We got him home...I got the car back into the drive way before my mom woke up (I borrowed he car like usual). I went to sleep for an hour then I told my moms that I broke it in my sleep. Sleep jumping??? Don't ask. It worked and now my ankles healed and I got a story to tell...so tell me yours.
    Peace

    My mission was to wreck shop on Washington just westward of northpark by the airport in S.D. It was COLE and me, my girlfriend at the time(one of the dopest chicks) decided to go with us. The target was a elementry school wall that faced towards the street, now this is on a hill so when your driving down the street you look up 150 feet on the side of the cliff and see the schools wall and some homes in the community. We got to our locale and got can ready, shaking quietly!!! We started our outlines and quick fills to set the pace. Looking at it we decided to go big and add charecters. We had already been there for about an hour and we were finishing up and my girl tells me she sees a dog. I think you know what kind of dog it was. "K9". I grabbed my backpack and the few cans that were left astray (never leave evidence). My homie ran to the 18 foot fence and scaled it like a cat running from dogs. My girlfriend hops it like its something she has beendoing for years. Well I dont get so luck and my ecko jacket with these cool little rubber cords gets snagged on a link, I do a nice windmill down to the groud. My beanie flew off when I hit the ground. I picked it up and started to run more when I jump the second fence and cut the shit out of my hand. My girlfriend leaves withouit us, me and my homie have a three mile walk in the middle of the night through shitty as hillcrest "San DIegos GAY COMMUNITY. Both of us with backpacks and paint on our fingers, me bleeding. We get to my friends house and the only good thing that hapened is a nice cold beer. Then my girlfriend comes over and nutures me back to health. The next morning we go scope our steez. COLE arrows CATS arrows and on top it says FITE THE SYST. Sun will know...

    Still loked, theres all the new stores in south o. The Walmarts, targets, etc. etc. The valley has shown the most promise, and of course the usual spots on the freeways. They destroyed that old storage place at the 76/5 connecter.

    I knew THE dude that fell off the heaven here in Seattle. Dose®.. he was in my high school. It was in the papers and shit.. that kind of shit doesn't happen here as much as it might in Cali.. He was from L.A. and he claimed CBS, but we didn't really believe him. He didn't die.. somehow. He managed to get away (well, NOT get away.. he got caught) with a broken arm and a body full of bruises and gnarly gashes and shit. I don't know how that guy did it.. that's a long ass way to fall!

    i was doing a roller along the missisipi river. i think it was christmas eve. there were boats going up and down the river, but nothing special, but all of a sudden, one flashes a spotlight on me. i grab my bag and the ladder and run. since it's on the river front, it's rocky as hell. i guess my fott got caught and i fell smack on my face. luckily i didnt break anything, just had a big ass scrape along my face. and i didnt ghet caught, so i guess it turned out alright. shit is still runnin, but i've yet to go finish it, ha ha (this is like 2 years ago). other than that. of course cuts on my hands from fences.and other little stuff.

    one night my boy and i decided to go paint these freights that were layed up a few blocks away from our house, i swear there had to be atleast 50 of those big gray fuckers all seemed to be brand new....anyways, this was like the chillest spot to paint freights in the city, so we went down there four or five days straight and bombed the hell out of em. so one night as usual we're down there bombin away, and a union pacific locomotive comes down the tracks slow as hell with all of its lights off...(when they go slow, you cant hear em)finally that fucker gets close and i see it, all of a sudden four or five rail workers jump off with flashlights yelling"do you see em" i took of into a bush...but on the other side of the bush was a 15 feet drop off...reminder: it was pitch black i fall down this thing bumping into trees finally i stop rolling down this hill...it took me 5 minutes to get back up that hill...i couldve died....when i got back all of the rail workers were gone and my boy says"where the fuck did you go"

    peep the bushes before you jump into em...they could be occupied by a hobo...........:rolleyes:

    I was painting with a friend on a 2nd story ledge...just finished my piece when we must have set off a silent alarm. An ADT security van showed up...the guy was yelling, "what are you doing?"

    Our only choice was to get down and confront the dude...there was no other way out. We had to jump from a fire escape to some scaffolding about 4 feet away. My friend jumped and climbed down, and the security gaurd was scared and didn't do anything, so my friend started running...meanwhile I was hanging from the fire escape by my hands.

    Somehow I jumped to the scaffolding, grabbed hold of a bar with my hands, but my feet continued to swing forward so that I was parallel to the ground...I slipped and landed flat on my back from 18 feet off the ground and I could barely walk.

    I ended up limping away while the security gaurd watched, absolutely horrified by seeing me fall. I went to a hospital and ended up with a broken elbow and never got in any trouble for it.

    Shot at, slapped in the head with a lead pipe, body cut all to shit, etc.

    Not a bad shake for a guy who barely does illegals.
