revenge?

Recommended Posts

last year i had my first solo art show and it was a great success. sold alot of work, made all my money back and had 4-500 people at the opening. a week later i go to kick it with the gallery directors and shoot slides of all the work and the back door of the place is wide the fuck open. i had an installation in the front with lots of art supplies in milk crates resembling the studio i had at my house... all paint was stolen, 4 paintings also were stolen. this was 13 months ago, and yesterday i ran into an old friend and he broke into this story immediatly.....

 

he was taking an art show down and heard this kid bragging about breaking into a gallery and racking a bunch of shit off some "egotistcal faggot artist" then dropped my name. my boy grips a stool and is about to confront him, but it was his birthday and there were a bunch of cops around which i understand. the kid goes on to explain he only broke into the building and stole my shit because I SNUBBED HIM WHEN HE CAME TO THE OPENING, you know solo show, 3 hours, 500 people, you can give everyone 45 minutes of your time right?

 

so anyway, i got a list of all the people in the show my boy was taking down and the kid is one of them. im sleuthing each person out on facebook if i dont recognize the names so maybe a face will pop out. but if you were me what the hell would you do? i was thinking of knocking on dudes door, macing him and rolling through the crib to find my works, i kinda wanna ruin this dudes reputation within the local art community too and whenever i find out who it is the gallery is gonna prosecute him(dont give me no stop snitching shit this faggot stole shit i fucking spent over 100 hours making, im gonna fuck his life up as bad as possible)

 

SO ANY IDEAS?

Gather information to help the police out. Turn it over to them and the gallery.

Don't fuck up your freedom because you felt like knocking his jaw about his face

after entering his house w/o invite.

 

If you need some help gathering more info, let me know. Oh, and sue him. That

will make his life shit.

Well your cover is blown, you may not know him but he knows you. A home invasion with assault is most likely not a good idea unless you are really that kind of person and can pull it off.

 

Maybe just confront the guy and try to talk it over with a hint of threat and blackmail.

i think getting a breaking and entering charge and burglary would set dude straight more than me jumping him or something, the thing that killed me was i lost 600 bucks because i sold both the pieces

Yes, This would be wise. You can always sue him for lost money civilly.

Not this time, man. This sounds like a situation where if we do anything

it could fuck yinz up.

I could be wrong but all this talk of trying to sue this individual does not strike me as possible. He committed a criminal offense not a civil one. For you to legally get anything out of him he first needs to be convicted in a court of law of the criminal offense of stealing from you or the gallery owner.

 

Does the gallery owner even give a shit or is it just you?

 

Sometimes you just have to walk away, you can try to take legal action but unless you live in mayberry I kind of doubt the police will really give a shit about 2 thousand dollars worth of shit taken over a year ago.

Yinz has a witness who heard kid admitting to stealing his shit.

 

 

Yinz, talk the police and an attorney friend. See what your options are as far as statutes of limitations. I'm guessing that since the gallery was broken into, they care. He said that they will also press charges.

 

 

If it turns out you have no legal options, break this kids face. I'm not talking sending him to the hospital to get stitches. I'm talking plastic surgery and bone reconstruction.

Indeed, without police interest in perusing this yinz is out of luck less he choose to take matters into his own hands which is un-advisable.

Still well within the statue of limitations I would imagine but things do get stale as far as evidence etc.

i figure he gets charged and even if he gets off his name is dragged through the mud within the art community and that would hurt more than any punch could. there will be civil action if i find the shit too, its all up in the air but im pretty confident i can figure it out

The fear of having his reputation hurt could motivate him to give what he has left back. That being said revenge is not always about just getting your shit back but extracting from the one who harmed you what you feel is appropriate.

Do not pay an attorney a fucking dime unless you have to. We pay taxes to have law enforcement and this is firmly within their purview.

You have to have some friends or family who know an attorney. That would be the first step.

If not, attorneys sometimes give free consultation.

 

If you do know one, spend some scratch and take them out to lunch. That way you accomplish two things:

 

1: Free advice which would be better than some consultation in an office.

2: Butter the attorney up in case you need him/her. They will remember you as the nice

guy who payed for their lunch.
