Mike, the fact that you don't know what tagging is may shine some light on
why you and I have a totally different world view. You are sheltered, boy.

Tagging of course, is the gang names painted on (usually) city walls (though
in beautiful nearby Vasquez rock you still see it). It is similar to the way
dogs mark their territory. If a gang tags a particular street or neighborhood
it means "watch out his is ours". People her in Lovely LAPD land are
sometimes even shot on sight for this, but they do it anyway. Shootouts with
the police are common, as well as other gangs who's name you are spraying
over. It's more than vandalism, it signifies a whole way of life. It is one
of the dumbest things a person can do, but it takes big BIG cohones; hence it
is respected by street fighters.

I could give a shit about fur coats. Most people who feel the need to
procalim "meat is murder" really could look into helping peolpe instead. I
don't think they're animal lovers as much as people -haters; ). They want
pulbcity. No on e watching, what would be the point? Plus throwing red paint
at a rich bitch isnt really such a big crime, it's just more vandalism.

Ok Mike,
Except for catch and not release ( which is more archaic than anything else),
running red lights which could get you killed accidentally, and Billboard
sabotage, (which sounds suspiciously a lot like tagging...)
...what is 'bad' about any of those things? They sound harmless, and you
propbably like it if people *are* watching... ; - ) ; ) : )
