I don't get it then....The guy takes property that belongs to someone else (he states that he does this often and takes pictures of it), he destroys it by cutting it up and it's NOT a crime? The evidence was out in the open on the street.

Sooooooo, we don't worry about things like this in the "new" US of A...the hope and change USA.

Typical liberal behavior, thanks for playing.

Can't make a point without name calling I see. Interesting

Honest question as I have no idea of the answer.

If someone steals something from me and it is recovered, but damaged and I decline to press charges against the person, shouldn't that be the end of it and the police halt with any further activity on the matter?

OK, let's review:

I don't get it then....The guy takes property that belongs to someone else (he states that he does this often and takes pictures of it), he destroys it by cutting it up and it's NOT a crime? The evidence was out in the open on the street.

Who filed a complaint alleging a crime was committed? What a person says is one thing, determining the actual evidence of a crime is another. Bottom line: was a complaint ever filed by any of the past or present 'victims'?

Sooooooo, we don't worry about things like this in the "new" US of A...the hope and change USA.

Irrelevant rhetoric.

Typical liberal behavior, thanks for playing.

Use your head. That isn't name calling, that was identifying your liberal behavior which you put on display when you lied in your post #42, when you said that I "hate cops", when I said no such thing, nor did I even suggest it. THAT is liberal behavior, you lie about someone, try to put words in their mouth, and attack them for something they never said, and then when called on it you play the poor hurt victim and claim it is 'name calling'.

Uh uh, that dog won't hunt.

Try again.

Yes, let’s review. (I do so love how condescending you are)....stealing is only a crime if someone complains. Thanks for the info.

But yes, Free Barrel Monster!

LOL! Go figure, with all thats going on in this country folks here are worrying about some guy who stole 3 construction barrels and turned them into art........LOL!

Heck, if I had an old truck I'd be running those damn things over just for the heck of it considering all the road construction we have going on here in S.E. Michigan ALL YEAR LONG!

In retrospect, maybe the guy should have picked up the barrels that were already hit by vehicles.............LOL!

I HATE graffiti, and this just sounded like it to me. I don’t think I will lose any sleep over it.

No problem, I won't either. I live in S.E. Michigan and we have nothing but road construction going on non-stop, all year long, year after year after year........I see these damn barrels every day of my life!

To see some guy actually use these damn barrels (he should have come up here and picked up the ones hit by vehicles)and create figures out of them, well, I think its pretty darn cool!

If I had his talent or if he was working for me, we could make a fortune out of that barrel art. I can just see those barrel figures with signs hung over their necks saying "Slow Down" or "Road Construction Ahead".......the opportunity is endless.........

Every monster has a creator so to free the monster is to also give amnesty to the creator...............thats natural law.

LOL when my brothers were in their teens they worked for my Uncles tile company. One day coming back from a job in Austin the traffic slowed enough that they were able to take cones out with the truck door. The cop that pulled them over was not to happy and told them they were lucky that traffic was so heavy or he would make them go back and stand them all upright again.

Your post #44:

CAluvdubya to mkjessup just....wow. You hate cops so much that even stealing isn’[t a crime if the owner profited by it.

You lied when you stated that I 'hated cops' when I said no such thing. You know that. Now you're trying to spin your way out of it.

Later in this thread when you started playing the victim card, you were whining about 'name calling' however in this latest lame response of yours, you said:

"I'm also not a pompass old fool like you!"

Pot, meet kettle. And learn how to spell 'pompous'.

You taught me well. Why should I be a silent victim to your name calling? So far you have nothing informative to say. Just snarking at me for my opinion about the thread. When I argued my point, you called me names. I follow suit, you whine some more.

Get a grip. Maybe you need a little break from the computer.

Why should I be a silent victim to your name calling?

You are clearly projecting. The only name calling that has taken place in our interactions has been directed from YOU to ME. Go back and find something, ANYthing that constitutes my calling you names. You can't do it, but feel free to try.

So far you have nothing informative to say. Just snarking at me for my opinion about the thread. When I argued my point

You didn't argue a thing, and it wasn't your 'opinion' that started this exchange, it was your LYING, i.e., you lied in your post #44 when you stated that I "hated cops", and I accurately pointed out that I had stated no such thing.

you called me names.

WHAT names? Does "pompass ass" or perhaps "old fool" ring a bell?

I follow suit

You can't 'follow suit' when you initiate the behavior.

you whine some more.

More projection. You view yourself as the victim and the only whining going on here has been originating on your keyboard.

Get a grip. Maybe you need a little break from the computer.

Physician heal thyself.

The people who DO own them are fans.

Should they have a say in what happens, rather than automatically throwing this kid in prison (which is where many “law and order” types would like to see him go)?

Boiling Pots, he did this without their consent and they said it was okay after the fact just because people said “Oooh...that is so clever! Your company is really cool for letting him do that...”

If people had said they were pissed because the guy had his ‘sculpture’ holding an offensive sign or whatever, it would be different.

The guy is inconsiderate, stupid and immature in my opinion. He isn’t a criminal, just a dumb ass.

He doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anything or anyone except himself, and thinks the world should be his canvas. If you aren’t one of the ‘law and order’ types, good on you. Just don’t project that on anyone else in any other circumstance.
