Girafa Arrested!

P1050293GIrafa behind bars, indeed.

SFist has the scoop here. Complex issue. Lots of taggers are just vandals. Girafa, like Basquiat and Keith Haring, is a fine artist. Some people, with crowbars and saws, were able to take home graffiti by Basquiat and Haring, and later sell them for tens of thousands of dollars. I guess, in the eyes of the law, all graffiti is vandalism. More Girafa here. Will there be a free Girafa movement? I guess his mistake was going to San Jose, where the police priorities are different than they are in SF.
