    I hate people like this. What a drating waste. I`m all for street art and stuff like that, but this was straight up vandalism. How much money is it gonna cost to fix the train? Those people have no consideration for others.

    @koffymasheen

    Completly agree with you - street art and stuff no problem - but all this will result in is a several thousand dollar bill to the taxpayers to remove it.

    You`re correct - they have not thought out the impact of their actions....wankers!

    how much time organizing this, coordinating the effort and materials.

    Yet they can`t get a job or stay in scholl...


    Yeah, I know some hater`s gonna say "you don`t know they aren`t in school" to which I reply "Fah! When has tagging gotten anyone anywhere except a jail cell? Not exatly a road to success"

    That`s more wrong than it is fun. But still, pretty tight

    I understand they pulled all those E-Breaks and stuff, but could the conductor not override them at some point? Did he just sit there and let them do that for a majority of the time?

    Actually Gerry, tagging skills are rather honored if you do it well. People like that will usually go to graphic design schools or something of the sort after they find their art is good enough. Where would we be without them?

    Anyway, I appreciate a good tagger if it`s artistic and not the markings of a gang, and done respectively.

    w/e it was, it was pretty well thought out, and pretty impressive, morally wrong though? well someone has to spend time cleaning it and lots of train passengers will probably have their train delayed or even cancelled
    i know ive had my train delayed because of vandalism

    Step 2: Paint every wall, floor, ceiling, surface and item of property in their home a charming poo-brown.
    Step 3: Tell them I think it looks good, and they shouldn`t complain about me painting their property to look how I want when they are doing it to everyone else`s property.

    They are criminals, this has nothing at all to do with "art" of any kind.
    If it WERE art, they`d go spray their OWN cars! That I`d be fine with.

    Q:"When has tagging gotten anyone anywhere except a jail cell? Not exatly a road to success"
    A:Richie "SEEN" Mirando-one of the "godfathers" of graffiti has his own line of toy figurines and a very successful tattoo & piercing buisness here in the Bronx. He has appeared in numerous documentaries, and his art work has been featured in many art galleries around the world.
    A2:Marc "Ecko" has an EXTREMELY successful national clothing line called Ecko Unltd.
    Besides these two there are various graffiti artists that make very nice livings painting murals, such as TATS.CRU here in NYC. They may above board now, but their roots are firmly planted in the illegal underground graffiti movement of the 70`s and 80`s. hope that answers your question.

    That is ridiculous, I don`t mind graffiti if it actually looks good, but that didn`t and the fact that they also put some on the drivers front window means that he`s not supposed to move the train so he will have to wait for assistance. And they probably scared loads of passengers on the train, all for what? It doesn`t even look any good.

    Seriously? Ok I don`t mind graffiti (on BUILDINGS, not trains.) if it looks good.. but this is just ridiculous. And extremely childish. These kids needs to grow up and stop harassing other people. Those poor people probably had to sit there for at least an hour waiting for assistance. And I`m guessing they were scared s**tless too. PLUS they ruined a perfectly good train with that ugly loooking thing. Who knows how many hours that thing took to remove. And how much of the tax-payers money actually was used in the process. I say YES to good-looking graffiti on buildings.. NO(!) to things like this.

    As a person very interested and involved in graffiti here in Chicago, IMO this is a waste of time and especially paint ( even thought paint is prob legal where this is at) other ppl here are right it will be gone the day after this was done. Do the side of a store or office building or climb up a fire escape and do sum rooftops. if i was on that train I would of been pissed!?!!...I could understand why this would be fun, half the appeal of vandalism is the thrill. Look up TKO crew they have a good mix of vandalism and graffiti. Or if you live in Chicago go to the abandon candy factory on Lake and Cicero some of the BEST graffiti you can find in Chicago! ( your gonna have to climb a fence or two)

    lol, so what, defacing the property of a corporation, you`ve got to admire their coordination.

    and im sure they are very sorry to all of you who didn`t think it was that great of art.

    everyone needs to chill, its not like they were gang raping a bunch of kittens, burn a bowl down and eating some chips people, still got 2 years `til the world ends.

    ugh. Doesn`t even look good. I like graffiti that isn`t just tags of stupid street names, this is just a giant dumb tag, doesn`t even look good, and it`s a giant hazard to the train and the people inside of the train. Do this poo inside of tunnels, where a little bit of color can liven up the place, not on a train, where people like to look out of the goddam windows.
