As a side walk chalk vandal my self I am getting a kick.


Long story short.  When I was 12 a friend and I were caught tagging the side of the school with the chalk.  A police officer saw us and "arrested" us.  Our parents were called and we had to clean it up.  No real arrest and no BS over chalk on the school.  however....

Joke was on them.  Our parents thought it was clever and perhaps a little cruel to have us use a very small brillo pad and tooth brush to clean off our naughty language.  My friend and I looked at each other as there wasn't much to start with and we realized very early that super cleaning only 1 part of a building results in only one thing.  Orders are orders and if parents and a police officer are that damn stupid... well they just became part of the prank.  I whispered this fact to my friend and we continued to vigorously scrub.  Afterwords our art was now engraved into the brick of the school and our parents failed to realize this.  Our artwork was visible for a few years until somebody felt it was worth preserving and gave it an upgrade with real spray paint.

The right thing would have been to just have us hose it down, but our parents thought it would be a better idea to get creative with the solution.  It backfired and it was awesome.

cman: 1. Guy was retarded by vandalizing public property


Yeah.  I once dumped some of my latte on a sidewalk.  I'm glad Johnny Law wasn't around, or I'd have faced a serious caning or worse for such an egregious violation.

But, every day, I walk past the spot of my vandalism, and I see the stain.  It makes me smirk knowing just how badly I stuck it to the man.

Gimme a hose and a scrub brush, I'll do it for half in about 15 minutes.

Wankers.

Or just wait until the first good rain.  Works in my neighborhood.

Oh wait, I forgot.  It never rains in Southern California.  Never mind.

It was $50 for the clean-up followed by a $5950 bonus.

teenage mutant ninja rapist: Phil Moskowitz: You people are a goddamn mess. I wouldn't set foot in the US on a dare.

yeah every damn day america seems just a little more retarted. Take it from a concerned northern neighbour, you fellas need some help. As a nation you guys need a shrink.

back in the 90's I used to love going to the states. Now not even if you paid me would I go. Which is a shame cause there are lots of cool places to see.


Sadly, as a nation, we hate/fear psychiatry.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Sir Cumference the Flatulent: Monkeyhouse Zendo: TonyDanza: wallywam1: Still no malice.

His action was done with the sole intent of hurting Bank of America.  By the very definition of the term it was an act of malice.

Today I learned that attempting to reduce a corporation's profits by advocating that consumers use an alternate service provider is "hurting" that corporation. I guess Mitt was right: corporations are people too.

/my friend

Didn't you get the memo? Dissent=terrorism.

Descent, on the other hand.....


It's the highest form of patriotic.

take_flight: redmid17: Cataholic: redmid17: Cataholic: WhyteRaven74: cman: 1. Guy was retarded by vandalizing public property

except given that chalk is not permanent nor damages the property it's not really vandalism.

California Penal Code Sec 594


(a) Every person who maliciously commits any of the following acts with respect to any real or personal property not his or her own, in cases other than those specified by state law, is guilty of vandalism:

(1) Defaces with graffiti or other inscribed material.

(2) Damages.

(3) Destroys.

Chalk doesn't damage or destroy concrete. You also notice that nowhere in the penal code is 'deface' defined in the CA penal code.

Then you go with the plain dictionary meaning.  If it mars the appearance of something, it defaces it.

Yeah but marring the appearance of something implies some type of permanence. Am I defacing a whiteboard if I draw a dick on it (and I have many a times)? Not in my view since it is easily removed.

Drawing a dick on a whiteboard is not "defacing". Everyone knows it's not a dick, it's scissors.


Oh they know what it is. It's always a real big veiny, triumphant bastard.

It's all the gubmint regulations that make it cost $6000, you have to get a water dumping license, file impact assessment with the EPA, pay a contract janitor, because the union ones can't work on the sidewalk, etc.  These things add up.

If this was on a public sidewalk then Bank of America was not responsible for cleaning it up, since it's not their property.  They only cleaned it because it embarrassed their business; then went straight to their cronies in the justice department to get them to make an example of someone who dare try to embarrass them.
This guy should first sue the city for selective persecution, then sue Bank of America.
