    shit like this pisses me off.
    and i am quoting
    "Regardless of what you read at the Art Crimes web site, much of today's graffiti is indeed gang related (turf marking, drug oriented, or hate type) tag graffiti. Travel through any large communities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and even my little town of Pleasant Hill and it becomes quite obvious. Art Crimes is clueless. The number of persons actually interested in painting pretty pictures must be minuscule when compared to the amount of bad talent and gang graffiti out there. The gang vs artist debate is a smoke screen used to placate communities. Graffiti advocates want you to look the other way. The few who are not in gangs don't want you to feel concerned or frightened when a gang moniker or the tag from a violent crew appears on the power pole in front of your home. The graffiti advocate knows if you are concerned about the effects of graffiti, the "graffiti artist" down the street might get extra attention from the police. Tagging crews are a gang of sorts, since they are involved in illegal activity that can include theft of paint and markers from stores, violence against the public and other crews, as well as misdemeanor or felony vandalism. Graffiti vandals are indeed in gangs! Anyone who tells you otherwise is uninformed or is trying to deceive you. "

    --sometimes people are so clueless and pathetic it makes me very sad. Oh well what can you do? Any redneck, whitetrash, whatever, will read this, see me and then shoot me cause he thinks im in the crips or some shit. :eek:

    As long as there is beef, crossing out, and fighting over graffiti related business, those guys have a point. Remove that bullshit all together, and they have no case.

    Most people don't like tags - bottom line. You have to think about all of that when you're out there. Part of the enjoyment is in the rivalry between you and the abatement system.

    man that is some fuked up shit right there. graffiti is so big that it's not even possible to make generalizations about graffiti. that article only covers the bad part of graffiti which is gang shit and that is like a whole other category that writers aren't even about.
    well i'm gonna go get my 9mm and a can of paint cuz i'm gonna kill people and do gang graffiti, later

    With the extremly high number of spelling errors in the replies to this, it's no wonder the general public isn't too concerned with our opinions. And, as someone stated before, as far as the law is concerned, any group of three or more individuals who participate in an unlawful act qualify as a gang. Every single crew out there that has done any illegal work at all is a gang. Of course, they aren't gangs when judged by the popular definition, and that's where good old Dougie boy goes wrong. His problem, being misinformed as he is, seems to be that he cannot determine the difference between a handstyle put up by a writer, and one put up by a gang member. But hey, what do I care? I can't be cited for gang graffiti, I run solo. Beyond that, I really don't give a fuck what the public thinks of what I'm doing. For that matter, I don't really care what any other writers think of what I'm doing. Heh, I guess sometimes it pays not to care.

    Toy Rockers kill it

    People hate graff cause toys hit up on peoples fences and shit like that so when you gotta fork up your own money to clean it up it pisses them off then they wont shut their mouth on how much they hate graff.

    i'm thinkin that if people didn't care about graffiti than there would be less bombing and stuff, that's the destructive side of graffiti (i bomb it's just part of graffiti) but if people didn't care about graff than you could take your time and burn walls, instead of quick ass whack shit.
