Cell Service Shutdown Raises Free Speech Questions

This is a violation. We pay a huge amount for cell phone service. Its ours. No one has the right to disconnect it from us. As long as we pay for our service, we have the right to use it how we please.

"restrictions that he says are in line with Supreme Court precedent that allows the government to put limits on the time, place and manner of protests." This restriction defeats the purpose of protesting if we are limited in our time to stand for what we want.

Graffiti Artists Want To Disassociate From Crime

That's why Writerz Blok is such a great idea, a safe place, where you can be an artist around good people and get inspired by other artists.

Yes, vandalism isn't good, but in no way should all street/graffiti artists be labeled as gang members. Tagging and graffiti seem to have taken on two different shapes. Street artists express themselves through their colors and skills, gang members don't express themselves and feel that violence, prostitution and the drug trade is the right thing to do, and is the only way out.

Street art is a much healthier alternative. I'd rather see graffiti than a guy on the corner selling dope to my kids, or selling them off for sex.

The point that this article is making, is the association that if people get rid of graffiti than crime will be less, and although street art done without permission on an owned property is vandalism, this is ultimately NOT the crime the police are after.
