Dutch graffiti doofus

Netherlands Man Charged with N.Y. 'Graffiti Tourism'

NEW YORK (AP) -- Authorities say a Dutch man who came to New York as a ``graffiti tourist'' has been indicted on charges of spray-painting a subway car and leading police on a dangerous chase along the tracks.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said Thursday that Robbert Boxem faces charges including criminal mischief and reckless endangerment. The 23-year-old could get up to four years in prison if convicted.

Defense lawyer Marco Wright didn't immediately return a telephone message.

Brown says Boxem uses the graffiti tag ``KRAE'' and apparently came to New York for an international graffiti event known as Meeting of Styles. He lives in Zwolle, Netherlands.

Boxem was arrested Sept. 9. Authorities say an arrest warrant was issued Thursday after he missed a court date.

Send him to Riker's Island!

I'm sure 4 years in prison amongst members of the "hip hop generation" will knock some sense into his skull. Or maybe his buttocks.

The graffiti is cool and colorful.
what is the big deal?
yes if it's on a building or a window.

How about I break into your apartment, and paint the walls with what I consider "cool and colorful"? Then you'll have an idea of what "the big deal" is.

Moral relativistic idiot.

Boxem is about to spend time in the big box. Take his crayons away!

Actually "The Meeting of Styles"
is a long time well respected aerosol art event which is held annualy and has nothing to do with ILLEGAL GRAFFITI tagging.

Legal permission is granted by the owners of the buildings that some pretty impressive art is put up on.

This Dutch/doofus/vandal
should have his balls sprayed red then turned out naked, for example, on the streets of Dix Hills
(Huntigton, L.I.)
where the local mob bosses know what to do with a pair vermilion sprayed nuts!

WADE NICHOLS: Moral relativistic idiot.

I take it you're a moral absolutist, then? Do tell what your standard is, how you formulated it, and why anyone else should follow it.

Why should Wade even be asked that? Graffiti is a crime and this asshole committed it. Case closed.

ANONYMOUS: Why should Wade even be asked that? Graffiti is a crime...

Well, Wade didn't call the previous anonymous a "crime loving idiot," or some such, he called him a "moral relativistic idiot." (I can only assume that his choice of words indicate that he's against moral relativism.) So I'm inquiring into the nature of his sense of morality. Valid question, I think.

More of the usual obfuscation from Ridgewoodian.

He completely avoids commenting on the illegality of painting graffiti on a subway car, but instead, targets moi. This allows him to:

1.) Exhibit his liberal bona fides, showing how "tolerant" he is

2.) Allow him to avoid the issue entirely, by attempting to portray Wade Nichols as a "thought criminal", rather than the moronic Euroweenie who broke the law by spray painting a subway car paid for by public tax dollars.

Don't let pseudo "intellectuals" such as Ridgewoodian fool you. In his twisted view of the world, free speech is a crime; graffiti is permitted, since it doesn't "harm anyone", and it's like, so postmodern, or something....

Wade-- Fine, graffiti is a crime. 99.99% of the time people shouldn't engage in it. Happy? Now, you still didn't answer my question, which had nothing to do with graffiti or crime, which are only marginally interesting subjects, but was about morality. You called that other person a "moral relativist" in such a way that I'm led to believe that you believe that that's a bad thing. So can you enlighten me as to the basis of your morality? Or were you just singing through your anus again?

A double dose, plus a second helping of obfuscation from Ridgewoodian! Ridgewoodian! - the guy who keeps going back to the buffet table of obfuscation constantly!!

Here we go again, off on meaningless tangents.

Indeed. I couldn't have said it better myself.

I don't really understand Ridgewoodian's "point" here either. Once again, he tries to pin someone in an intellectual corner.

In Ridgewoodian's jihadi-like zeal, he's simply trying to set me up as some sort of Taliban-like moral absolutist. He'll eventually get around to asking me: "What if a starving man stole a slice of bread from Gristede's, do you think he should serve time in jail?"

Does Ridgewoodian really think I favor jail time in this instance? Of course not, I have compassion! I would favor chopping off one of his pinky fingers, that should be sufficient punishment.

Why shouldn't he be arrested? He could easily go to a food pantry. Anyway, at least a starving man would be stealing out of a basic necessity. A graffiti douchebag just des so because he is an asshole.

Wow, way to set up straw men there, Wadiepoo. Glad to hear you're not Inspector Javert or Mullah Omar. Of course, I still don't see what a man of first rate intelligence - which I know you are because you've told me so, many many times - finds so obscure; I thought my question was quite clear. I'm not hiding behind any particularly technical jargon and my point is not to entrap you somehow but rather to more fully understand your thinking and the thinking of those like you. If moral relativism doesn't work for you - and it seems not to - then what is the basis of your morality? This is a question that we all have to ask ourselves. Some of us ask it continually. Is your answer so shameful that you have to be coy about it? Or have you just really not given it much thought and were you letting your ass do you talking for you again?

Who the hell cares about moral relativism? The topic here is graffiti. I don't know any culture where it's acceptable for someone to destroy someone else's property. There is no reason to ponder whether or not there was some higher meaning to this act. It was wrong. Period.
