Begoggle: Bslim: Standard Operating Procedure for NYPD manual dictates that he be summarily executed. Afterwards he will be cuffed, raped with batons, shot for resisting while his lifeless corpse moves during the rape. Sent to Rikers, raped, beaten, then shot again while trying to escape. The police union will then stage protests to defend the heroes.

And when that doesn't happen will you apologize for being an idiot?
Nah.


You first.

Gunny Highway: oh_please: Gunny Highway: I am sure there are people out there that dont like him but Banksy is awesome in my opinion.

So, it's ok to just go around and spray paint other people's property? Do we have judges on when that's cool and when it's not? If it's called "art" by the panel, then you're a hero, but if the panel doesn't like it, you go to jail:

"Sorry, Dante, this is just tagging, in my opinion...it's trite and derivative...cuff him, Officer."

"Aw, man, it's MINIMALIST! You just don't get it! See, it's reduced to its necessary ELEMENTS! It's raw, man!"

If he was arrested and charge, I wouldnt have an issue with it either.  I like his art.  I feel bad for the owners of the property.

That is allowed, correct?


You feel bad that the owners of the 'vandalized' property received hundreds of thousands of dollars in free equity?

I would pout if that happened to me, too.

Cubicle Jockey: Latinwolf: Painting on someone's without their permission, that's vandalism.


As said towards the beginning of this thread, Banksy's vandalism is the equivalent of someone throwing a 20lb gold ingot through your window pane. Yeah, your property was damaged, but are you really unhappy about it?

I assume the neighbors complaining about the broken window are just annoyed that it wasn't theirs that had the gold thrown through it.


Apples and oranges, at this point you're doing nothing more than kissing his ass when you attempt this excuse.

In the meantime, the owners of the wall Banksy defaced yesterday are so pissed off about it, they've covered it in plexiglass and are putting a rolling door in front of it to protect it at night:

I'm all for this, and think it should extend to all artwork.

"Nice painting, pass. You over there, what is your art? Crapping into tin cans, sealing them and then selling that off?? Book him."


/look it up
//yes, I know not all art was accepted at the time it was done
///yes, I know some art is meant to be controversial
////doesn't mean there isn't a lot of crap out there that isn't an affront against humanity
:;/:/ the art of slashies

Are you aware that you just described a critically acclaimed TV show from the early '90s

We gotta catch Banksy. He's gonna take us seriously when we do. Show him who's boss. Security rules the message, Banksy!! If it's extra-official, it's terror. We decide, Banksy! Individualism cannot be risked in this country, Banksy -- we're founded on control!! You better get in line, boy.

ArcadianRefugee: Slaxl: "Art is art, and nobody's a bigger supporter of the arts than I am. I just think there are some places for art and there are some places [not for] art. And you running up to somebody's property or public property and defacing it is not my definition of art. Or it may be art, but it should not be permitted. And I think that's exactly what the law says."

Haha, that's the best self-contradictory ramble by a politician I've heard today.

Not self-contradictory at all. Allow me clarify:

"Art is art, and nobody's a bigger supporter of the arts than I am. I just think there are some places for art and there are some places [not for] art. And you running up to somebody's property or public property and defacing it is not my definition of art. Or it may be art, but even if so, it should not be permitted because it is being done to someone else's property without their permission. And I think that's exactly what the law says. Actually, that's exactly what the law says; it's called vandalism."

Clearer?


Art is art regardless of the legality of it. Art can be vandalism, and illegal but that doesn't mean it's not art.
