The company who owns the property doesn`t want to press charges. That should be the end of it. "We have a job to do." Yeah, to be dickheads. Let it go if everyone involved doesn`t care. I don`t see how they can legally press charges if the property owner refuses. Times like this, this country sucks.
Sure, it was illegal that he stole them ... but the construction company doesn`t want to press charges and they even want him to replicate the statue. I really don`t understand why the police want to prosecute him anyway.
Also, don`t the police have better things to do with their time (like harass skateboarders and beat up little old ladies?). I`m just asking...
If they say that it was okay the kid took the barrels, then how can it be theft?
after all isn`t graffiti a crime? and isn`t that what Banksy does? without any kind of punishment? even though it is now widley known who he is?
and when an original banksy was ACCIDENTALLY painted over by a council in Glastonbury in England the person who owned it reported it too the police
Banksy F*** up
Thank you! Glad to see there still are sane people online.
I thought it was really cool, but yeah, he broke the law...why should he get a pass?
Justice shouldn`t be blind to tatented people like that because they get all their creative juice from the thrill of doing something they`re not supposed to.
The fact that they punish them so harshly just incite dumb kids to revolt and mimic those street artists.
But didn`t the construction not want to charge him because they liked it?
hehe, illegal erection..... OH NO!! 16 YEAR OLD MOMENT!
If he stole canvas and paint from a store, and made art with that, it would still be wrong, but art.
