graffiti is a direct expression of the individual, the way your style is, is an expression of you, people that bite in graffiti, are generally people that bite in life,

 

people with angry tags are angry people

 

childish tags childish

 

sloppy are sloppy

 

 

theres alot more you can read into this, but knowing who does the graffiti, you'll understand alot more.

 

its the same as signatures. you can just tell alot about the individual by how they write, even if there biting, unless you dont know that there biting.

i can see how having grafftiti on somwthing causes more graffit to be put on it , but thats onkly cause people figure that the own doesnt care enough to buff it. the thing about graffiti causing breakins and shit ithink is dumb, becasue if theres a shitload of graff in an area then the people prolly can afford to buff it, therefore they dont have any money, so why would you rob someone whos poor? and you usually dont see graff in nice hoods like the burbs anyway

I suppose the impression of neglection can cause criminal minded individuals to feel safer to do crime.. fit in better with the atmosphere.. if your ina location where things are well maintained it leaves an impression that people care about the area enough.. enough to try and stop criminals from doing shit.... but usually poorer areas that are less buffed have more crime robbery casue poor.. both beacause of poverty and not the casue of each other.. wait a minute what ami saying why dont poor peple just go rob in richer negbourhoods? oh yea so i guess what i was originally asserting was right becaseu more mainatined can look like harder to pull off crime or that peopel care about crimes (at least one crime being graffiti) so mr. criminal minded assumes would care about other crimes too.. anyway this issue isnt particulary intersting

i find it funny that the government and/or police actualy spend any time dealing with graff, just get a few council worker on the buff, simple as that.

its just not a big deal at all and the government should deal with real politics like abortion and terrorism while the police should deal with real crimes like murder and fraud

they spend money trying to rid the city of graf so that people dont think the area looks poor and prices can go up, more money into an area more business, its all about the mighty dollar in this country or sometimes it seems like CUNTry

any petty crime you deal with, there are always people saying "why don't you spend your money catching murderers, drug dealers, etc..." graffiti is a gateway crime.. and the broken windows theory is pretty much true... just admit it, you are committing a crime stop trying to justify it! if you get caught, then deal with it... keep painting...

Can't stop graff in a big city no matter what. There will be 20 foot high barbed wire fences with guard dogs with laser beams strapped to them or somethin and someone will still pull off painting a train or a wall or whatever the surface is haha. That's one of the best parts about graff, it's like solving a puzzle to get to a risky spot.

"One motivating factor behind the new bills is a slight resurgence in subway graffiti, with writers using etching acid to create indelible marks on the train windows."

Since January 1, a raft of new restrictions have come into force, including raising from 18 to 21 the age at which it is legal to possess "graffiti instruments," such as etching acid, aerosol paint cans and broad-tipped indelible markers.

 

 

When NYC's theft rate increases, this will be why. . .
