Tagger, 42, Found Dead on Subway Tracks
nbc ny ^ | 7-5-2014

Posted on 07/05/2014 2:32:07 PM PDT by Citizen Zed

Police are investigating the death of a graffiti artist who was found dead next to the third rail in a Brooklyn subway station.

Police say Saturday Jason Wulf was found by MTA workers just after 9 p.m. Wednesday at a station on the R line in the borough's Sunset Park neighborhood.

The New York Post says the 42-year-old Queens man was known by the tag "DG" and had been leaving his mark on subway cars and buildings since the mid-1980s.

An online fundraising site has received $10,000 in donations to pay for funeral costs.

If he was only a productive member of society he could have paid for his own funeral. But still ... Ha Ha!

Will his family be disappointed when I paint my tag all over his gravestone?

Forty-two and still illegally spray-painting graffiti instead of working? I wonder how many types of welfare benefits he received?

When you get older you can’t move as fast. When people figure that out is when they’ve grown up.

42? Pathetic. The last mark he left - a skid mark - aptly summed up the body of his works.

Absolutely no doubt whatsoever his family will sue and the Marxist Bill Duh Blasio aka Warren Wilhelm, will immediately settle with an $40 million dollar pay out of taxpayer money. He did that with the Central Park 5 rapists - Rape a woman, become a millionaire, and paid $98 million to settle a fake racism claim by black firefighters..Gee you’re hired, where’s the racism?

Meanwhile the dept of transportation when it comes to traffic cops is about 3% white or how about hospital workers union, again white members average around 1% even though the white population of New York city averages around 44%.

“When you get older you can’t move as fast. When people figure that out is when they’ve grown up.”

Tomcats and old men die of exactly the same cause. They don’t allow for the effects of aging. The tomcat jumps the six feet between rooftops, a distance he’s made hundreds of times over the many long years. But eventually, he ends up a foot short. I’ve known any number of elderly men who said, in effect, “I’m going to chainsaw up that entire oak tree this morning.”

Yes, as was said here, whatever they
spray paint as a memorial on his
tombstone, I want to spray over
that with “Whoever doesn’t know

Would that be ok?

I’ve known a lot of men, usually retired, who get carried away with trimming trees. I heard Mr. T, in real life was accused of this in his neighborhood. Maybe it’s part of a middle-aged crisis, where some guys try to control every single thing within sight, and the wife has long stopped playing that game to their satisfaction.

Oops.

I am not familiar with the clothing brand but at 42, this DG character was way past the expiration date for a “defacing public property” stage of life.

Some poor soul had to use a squeegee to clean up DG.

Bummer. Normally the price of your art go up when you croak. When you paint buildings and train cars they are so hard to sell.

Heh, or "Darwin Guy". He should have been thinking, "What's in a name?", especially one in quotes.

I’ve known any number of elderly men who said, in effect, “I’m going to chainsaw up that entire oak tree this morning.”

Or more likely, shoveling the driveway. Every winter, I hear of older men dropping dead in their driveways on account of shoveling snow. In my younger days, I'd shed down to a T-shirt and knock out my driveway in one session in zero degree wind chill. Eventually, it would take me 2 or 3 sessions in hat, scarf and gloves. These days, I pay somebody to come plow and watch them from the window while I'm sipping my coffee.

Getting old sucks but because I didn't waste my life spray-painting graffiti on subway cars and brick walls, I have the money to pay somebody else to plow my driveway (and mow my lawn).

It’s not the voltage that gets you, it’s the amps.

How many amps are there?

Enough to push a train.

What do you want to bet the family members who receive this free cash could care less whether or not this thug gets buried or not?

I'm sending them a can of orange spray paint......

I am certain that you have heard the old joke about the two bulls on the hill. The younger one says, “Let’s run down and breed a couple of those young heifers.” The old bull says, “No, let’s walk down and breed them all.”

Sorry, I should have quoted / italicized that. It wasn’t a question, it was movie dialog. For the bonus round, name the movie.
