Seven young men were indicted for painting graffiti around Lubbock, and the code enforcement manager says in his ten years with the city, this is the first time he`s seen a graffiti case go this far.We didn`t have to go far to find the vandalism. Just right next door to the KLBK station some local “artists” made their mark on an abandoned building. And with summertime just around the corner and kids getting out of school, we could be seeing a lot more.
“They got their information off My Space personal websites, and ID’d them right there” says Code Administration supervisor, Stuart Walker.
Congruencies in their work and giveaways on their My Space pages, that’s how police caught the seven vandals. Police had been trailing them for nearly two years and cleaning up their work was no easy task. The vandals may have used just a few dollars of spray paint but it cost the city big bucks. So much that they have a full time employee dedicated to finding graffiti and cleaning it up.
“We budget $45,000 for graffiti removal” says Walker.
That includes a full time employee who responds to complaints, and all the supplies to clean up the mess. But there are other ways to keep Lubbock clean and it doesn’t cost a thing.
“Keeping them active involved if their spray painting somebody’s fence” says Walker.
In 2005, there were 1,500 cases of graffiti and that doubled in 2006. They say this year it’s gone up and down, but it depends largely on the weather. Not a whole lot of people want to go out and graffiti if it’s raining or snowing.

peter vallone jr vs kiko vs ny graf scene
ce a urmat se poveste pe blogul revistei animal:
As reported in today's NY Daily News, KIKO, a 28 year-old graffiti writer, was sentenced to 6 months in prison and forced to pay a $25,000 fine for his recent tagging spree in Astoria. Fanatical anti-graffiti critic and name recognition councilman Peter Vallone Jr., who once proclaimed, “I want this punk, and I want him bad… Catching this guy has been a personal vendetta of mine for a few months now" is credited with supporting some of NYC's harshest graffiti laws ever, some of which were recently struck down as unconstitutional. He has used this issue as his personal soapbox for the past year or so, totally generating more press for himself than anything else he’s done. Although we do think KIKO should be punished in some form or another, specifically public service, we don’t think that any graffiti writer should ever have to serve jail time. In the long run this hurts the community more than any tag could. If anybody wants to do any peaceful
acum orice pusti cu un pix poate sa ii faca o vizita lui vallone, sa ii tot ureze de bine :)

in caz ca nu stiti despre ce e vorba, cautati overspray 1.0, o sa aveti ocazia sa il vedeti pe cope2 la treaba pe un perete curat-curatel. toata ideea dvd-ului este de a prezenta writeri din ny, ori care se ridica si prezinta interes, ori deja consacrati.
si apropo de dvd-uri, can't stop fanatics 2 a aparut deja, poate pune cineva mana pe el, sa vedem si scenele alea din bucuresti.
