The Sentence

The Justice of one vandalism case increased the sentence, calling the original sentence "manifestly inadequate". He also commented that "[w]hile some might regard graffiti as a stimulating and liberating activity that adds colour, spice and variety to a staid environment", such actions were "offensive to the sensibilities of the general public".

Fie on such judges!
Ayush Basu: There are a lot of people in Singapore who would agree with you, Larry.

I would like something like this on the outside walls of my new house, Ayush, but Na would not be pleased.
Ayush Basu: I cannot see why she would not approve, Ray

grin
This is great, Ayush, I do hate people telling me my opinion....
Ayush Basu: Thank you Frank, same for me.

but that's not graffiti, that's a mural, there's a difference
Ayush Basu: The judge I am referring to ruled in the case of a graffiti related vandalism case Elaine, this artwork is on a street in the heart of the city that has several bistros and bars nearby.
No offense to me Ayush...I simply call it Art!
Ayush Basu: All the works that I have posted so far were sanctioned and performed by skilled artists. The ones performed by vandals are usually taken down by the authorities very quickly.

Don't you love it when politicians speak in the name of the people..
I hate public figures who claim to know what I think!
It is so hard to change things.
Quite an energising mural. The guy must at least be 20 ft tall.

I guess, what remains true is when you re-paint the walls of someone else's property without their approval, that would be vandalism. To decide that graffiti in general is against the public's sensibilities, is a wild act of stretching his own judicial powers beyond the limits of his/her appointment. That stretch is offensive to the sensibilities of the general public and should be eradicated.
