JerseyTim: Ha, it's synonymous with Anonymous.


On the rooftop of a building in a [FLORIDA] metropolis,
RNC beset by image synonymous with Anonymous,
prior to a rally monotonous and full of pompousness,
for the party of the pachyderm and Wal-Mart hippopotamus.
A pile of random masonry is, granted, somewhat ominous,
but hardly represents a vital threat to Tampa's populace.
They'll be rounded up, locked down, then released on own recognizance--
a practice of state dominance that is sadly not anomalous.
My somnolence and apathy for this story is, yet, bottomless.

A bizarre image was spray-painted on a downtown building in Tampa, just days before the Republican National Convention.
The image resembles a picture from the movie "V for Vendetta.


Jesus, it's not "bizarre", and yes, it is from V For Vendetta, are you people retarded, or did you just phone this in while getting a BJ at the bathhouse in the other story? Seriously, you're acting like this is some great mystery... It's just a farking graffiti artist, he even signed the farking thing.

THIS. THIS is what the decline of the printed newspaper is bringing us, shiat written at a second grade level, welcome to the future.

I have always understood it as "good game" but that is from seeing it when I would be playing games. Charlie Brown might argue it means Good Grief.

I wouldn't be surprised if it has other interpretations

Gordon Gekko?

There is no farking "Left" in the United States.

The Democratic party is pro-business, pro-corporation and have never, ever, had the dismantling of corporations on their party platform. They are to the right of center, and are more pro-business than the average American taxpayer. Their values are pretty much in line with, though not locked on to, mainstream Christianity.

The Republican party is pro big-business, pro inherited-wealth and inherited position. They are opposed to a person born to a lower or middle class background having the opportunity to innovate or bring themselves up in the world. The GOP is the party of stomping anything low that is still moving.

If you want to find a real socialist or communist, somebody that could really benefit from redistribution of wealth, don't look at American politics. Look at the people that made wealth possible, but have no voice in government, nearly zero rights in the courts and are only spoken of in English for the point of slandering them; look at the people picking produce in the field. 18 hour days, $2.00 or less an hour, paying 1/3rd of their income in taxes, kids are in school for five weeks before being moved to another district. Unless you're debating one of these folks, you're not talking to a socialist. If you can picture being in their shoes and still being a Republican, you're insane.

Every time I hear somebody that's not a field worker a "Liberal", I consider the speaker to be an idiot. Probably one that's never had to work.

Those are the individuals that left those items on that rooftop," said Chief Jane Castor of the Tampa Police Department.

There appears to be no evidence of correlation between the construction materials and the graffiti. They just happened to be observed at the same time in the same area. Being a police chief one would realize this but instead she makes an unfounded claim about exactly who left them on the rooftop.

That's some desperate blowhard bullshiat.

I'm thinking that the pile of bricks was there before and has nothing to do with the Guy Fawkes picture. Why would anyone stockpile projectiles and then made sure the emplacement was discovered?

Or the whole thing or part of it is a plant to give a pretext to crack down on protests.

"To the right was piled up these big bricks, like street bricks. I mean, they were heavy and there was maybe about 12 of them. So, he [officer] said 'Was this here before?' I said, 'No, no, this has got to be that group called the Anarchists,'" said Papia.

Because anarchists are a united group.

ringersol: So... plenty of pictures of some graffiti but ... no pictures of the ominous pipe and bricks?
That sure seems... odd.

I mean, the ominous pipe and bricks are the only things that make this anything other than a street artist doing their thing.
You'd think they'd have been documented.


Ahh, the old Pipe & Brick Gang. Sounds like something from a '40s Dick Tracy comic strip...

beezeltown: Guy Fawkes (the "model" for the image) failed miserably in his mission. Can't figure out why they keep posting his image...


Not only that - it's good that he failed. He wanted to create a Catholic theocracy in Britain. Fawkes was a religious extremist.
