Some of the major points around this is does it matter where the graffiti is drawn or who by or is it as simple as its on a public building and no matter how artistic it looks its vandalism.
Points for Graffiti being and art.
There and many views on whether graffiti should be considers art. Graffiti can be acceptable in the modern day with over eighty percent of teenagers that think it is acceptable and it is used to express their feelings through art furthermore there are many people who believe that,

considered vandalism by some people because it may contain some offensive implications and as art by others as it beautifies the walls and improve the appearance of the buildings. However, it is a significant issue since it touches upon the fundamental right of freedom of expression. It is essential to shed light on why graffiti should be respected and considered as art rather than accusing it to be vandalism.
Opponents of graffiti argue that it is vandalism. Judge Hard claims, "the trouble [of graffiti] is that it is has been sprayed all over other people's property without their consent and that is simply vandalism” (Akbar). This argument is flawed. Firstly, while it is true for private

Parents of teen vandals should be held responsible for their child’s act of vandalism because, as parents, they maintain accountability of their children.
Due to the consequences of their child’s act of destruction and lack of morals and values, parents who maintain by law, total accountability of their children owe it to their community to pay for all costs incurred. The repercussions of family embarrassment may, in the long run teach not only the children how to obey authority through implemented rules and regulations, but it may also cause the parents to ultimately learn that their parenting skills need to align with acceptable standards of society. When faced with hundreds of dollars

Art: the ultimate form of self expression. But, what constitutes an art? And, who decides? These very questions plague society as it tries to decide and define the official status of graffiti--art or vandalism? Because it has found its way into art galleries and because of the community of artists who challenge and inspire each other, graffiti should be considered art and as a way to express oneself.
The origin and history of graffiti is not what one might expect. Believed to have been created by a Philadelphia high school student named Cornbread in 1967, it was a bold effort to catch the attention of a girl (De Melker). In this same time period, graffiti sprung up in New York as well. It

Graffiti is a unique form of art that is a relatively new in comparison with other genres. It's urban origins date back only a few decades. This style of art is characterized by artists who write nicknames or initials in creative lettering, most of the time done in public places. While some may see it as vandalism, it should be recognized as a valid type of artistic expression. Its history is hard to trace back due to fact that documentation on the topic is not readily available. Experts on the topic don't spread far from those involved in it personally. Nevertheless its evolution is easier to trace. Graffiti is fascinating and should be given the respect it deserves throughout the art

IntroductionGraffiti and vandalism are a major blight on communities. Vandalism can lead to important services, such as public telephones, being damaged so that they don't work, or removed, for example bus shelters, to protect from further harm. Vandalism can make the environment untidy, and graffiti can be offensive. All of these things contribute to an air of decline, and can lead to people fearing crime more.Acts of vandalism can include breaking windows, smashing up payphones, and graffiti. Many incidents of vandalism and graffiti are not reported. This is often because it is against private property and the victims do not consider it serious enough to tell the police, or think that the

Throughout the ages art has played a vital role in our life, for it is universal and everywhere, so we experience daily basis the houses we live in to the movies we see. Even in ancient culture, from the prehistoric period, art has played a crucial role by encouraging cave dwellers drawing on the wall of caves to record history. Most art is created for a specific reason or purpose, since it has a way of expressing ideas and beliefs, and it can record the experiences of all people, yet not all people agree on art styles; thus, while some people can consider something art, other may not like the same thing and regard it as a vandalism, and that is actually the case of graffiti. Graffiti is

I believe that Graffiti is most certainly a valid art form. The question as to whether any forms of graffiti can be considered art is a controversial area. Is it vandalism when it is placed on the side of a building or a car and art when it is on a canvas on someone's wall or in a gallery- what is the difference? Graffiti, in its more complex forms, can be considered art because it clearly contains artistic elements, it communicates the artist's expression to the viewer, and the traditional art community has already accepted it. The objective of this essay is to explain how graffiti art overcomes the concerns of illegality and vandalism and can be considered as a true art form.Graffiti has

Valley should serve as a visual cue to city officials that anti-graffiti programs and legal penalties in the Las Vegas Valley are ineffective, and must be handled with a sense of urgency; especially in light of the falling home values across the valley.Assembly Bill 14 (passed late in 2007) was one such law intended to curb the growing amount of graffiti related vandalism-the law sates that vandalism that causes more than $400 in damage is automatically considered a felony. The law also states that any type of vandalism to a public facility is considered a felony as well. Additionally, taggers (practitioners of graffiti related vandalism) can be apprehended before they deface property in the

A curfew is needed for people who stay out late and cause mischief. Towns without a curfew have higher crime rates than those who refuse or do not have a set curfew. Three things that I believe can be hindered by adding a curfew are vandalism, kidnappings, and drunk driving. These types of deviant actions are mostly done late at night and a curfew would immensely help the rates of these three crimes go way down. (http://wcr.sonoma.edu/v1n2/males.html)Vandalism is a problem for many towns across the nation and the rate could be cut immensely with the help of a strict curfew. This curfew would help keep a watch out for people who are up to no good. Graffiti has been a popular way to express

Recently there has been several incidents that've been discussed on the news about gangs and young teens fighting; although fights are commonly known to most people as using your fist and only your fist, teens today involve weapons which can have very deadly consequences. These gang fights usually occur when policemen are obscure or at late hours in the evening. In some areas in the U.S where curfews are not reinforced community vandalism is present. Vandalism is at an all time high among teens; vandalism includes damaging property, stealing street signs, egging homes or cars,

general impression that the community does not care. As more acts of vandalism accrue the worse they become. These neighborhoods usually experience vandalism followed by more severe acts such as mugging.The community level, disorder and crime are usually inextricable linked, in a kind of developmental sequence. Social psychologist and police officers tend to agree that if a window in a building is broken and is left unprepared, all the rest of the windows will soon be broken (269,Kelling)According to Wilson if one broken window is left unnoticed it is likely that more windows will become broken. The longer the window is left unfixed the worse the community perception becomes. As the community

Statistics demonstrate that more than one million people are arrested for drug abuse in a single year, meaning that drug use is a widespread problem for law enforcement. It is clear that drug abuse contributes to property crimes as well as violent crimes such as theft and assault.For these reasons, all drugs should be legal, inexpensive and easy to obtain.One of the most compelling issues concerning drugs is that they encourage crime. Crime is a direct result of drug abuse, as it is often committed to supply the habit. Drug-related crimes include violations of the law such as possession and trafficking, vandalism, assault and domestic violence. A crime such as

But unfortunately, official attempts are often in vain.The reason these artists enjoy painting walls results from "the adrenaline rush involved in expressing yourself illegally, which in our case just happens to be via graffiti. To me graffiti is just another form of art, and art is all self expression, legal or illegal" states local Perth artist Dave K.

We all know what Graffiti art is; well we think we know because of the “modern” graffiti art that is still occasionally seen. However Graffiti Art has been tracked back all the way to the time of 1851. Firstly graffiti comes from the Italian word “graffiato” meaning scratched and was later called graffiti through the media as we see it today. ‘Additionally early forms of graffiti were seen back in ancient Italy at the ruins of Pompeii’ in 1851. “Painting on sidewalks, and other forms of graffiti, is still common in Rome today. Whereas Romans consider graffiti as a form of urban art, many westerners consider it vandalism unless property owners give consent to the graffiti artists.” (Cyprus

Graffiti as an Artform
The value of any message or work of art, whether it is hanging on the wall of a gallery or a subway, lies on the intensity of the artist’s or vandal’s beliefs. Graffiti is an uncertain issue in respect to its virtue. While the voice of the individual must never be lost in a society of shouts growing larger and louder every second; graffiti is such a public medium that its integrity must be of great concern. Graffiti is a vast wasteland of indefinite opinions. Foremost graffiti is illegal and a form of vandalism, it invades peoples privacy and destroys their property. However, graffiti can be a means by which one may permanently express one’s self. It

insurance claims on vandalism. The claim in 1994
fell to 4485 claims. The article states that the decline is from establishing a
School Watch programme, which increases the level of security of the school,
following the same objectives as the Neighbourhood Watch programme.
Joining the two enterprises, we will see the level of graffiti drop dramatically
in our community as well as our schools.
I believe that such projects as the Legal Street Art programme can convert the
offenders from resisting to joining the community. Thus giving them a chance to
wipe their slate clear, and start off new with a more positive, and prosperous
aspect towards life.
As the old saying goes, 'prevention is better than the cure' so if these
organisations receive appropriate funding and support, we will see a substantial
reduction of vandalism in the Bayside area.

Graffiti originated in the 1970’s, just as the hip-hop scene began to explode. The first modern graffiti artist—referred to as a writer, lived in New York City, and had the nickname Tacki 183. Tacki 183 was responsible for creating an underground artistic revolution that has influenced popular culture. Graffiti has spread across America and over seas. Some of the most widely revered writers come from Germany, England, and Italy. Even at its inception, graffiti was considered illegal. It was thought to be vandalism at the time, and it still is today.
Even though graffiti has gained massive popularity and acceptance, many people are still ignorant about what it actually

Many students start acting violently when they drink. A drunken person can get mad at another person more easily than a sober person can. This leads to several reports of assault by an intoxicated person. Sexual assault also occurs from someone drinking too much. Men can take advantage of girl more easily if she is drunk. Since alcohol increases a person's risk taking behavior, they will become more likely to cause damage to other people's property. Most go on a rampage by smashing mailboxes or breaking car

Sadly, cybercriminals did not stop there as the motivation behind coding computer malware took a turn for the worse with the introduction of the web threat era. Cybercriminals began coding with one goal in mind, profit. Fueled by sabotage and profit, the growing social networking market has most recently become the target of social malware.

The proletariat are rigidly controlled and alienated from the rest of society. This explains non-utilitarian crime, like vandalism or gang violence, where the people who commit them are seeking some form of freedom or excitement. They are forced to work in boring jobs for long hours and low pay, as both of these factors mean more profits for capitalists. The jobs are deskilled so any proletariat workers who speak out are easily replaced. Capitalist culture is also materialistic, putting emphasis on being successful through obtaining money and

In today’s world, there are many social issues, like poverty, vandalism and unemployment. However, prejudice has become the most dramatic one. Prejudging people for their appearance is a common practice that humans perform. People are not only ridiculed for their color, but also by their religion, sex or age. Therefore, I consider that racism, ageism and sexism are the three major problems in our society and we need to cease them immediately. Much of our world’s history were based upon racism. In the 1600’s, white men used Africans as slaves and treated them as they were not human. "Colored" people were not even allowed to use the same drinking fountains as white people

On college campuses today, there is a lot of violence. Violence occurs for many reasons, its unfortunate but true. One of the main reasons that violence accurs is because 90 percent of violence on college campuses is alcohol related. That is one of the many reasons why violence occurs.
There have been reports of increased violence on U.S. college campuses since the early 1980s. Alcohol-related problems have included vandalism, fighting, injuries, and rape. However, as in the past, crime on campuses frequently was not reported to authorities or not divulged by institutions. Therefore, it is difficult to know if there has been an increase in incidences or just increased reporting. Roark

We hope that the people who commit the crimes “get what they deserve” and we have a common belief and hope that justice can occur in the form of a jail term, a fine, probation, etc. We have this “hope” for others because we know that if the same situation occurred in our lives, we would like to have some comfort in that the “system works.”

People are simply not conscious of these crimes taking place.In many cases, individuals know of the crime being committed but still do not report the matter. This can happen when there is no apparent victim (e.g. prostitution and certain drug offences). Frequently, however, the victim is powerless (e.g. of child abuse sufferers) and is either too afraid or is unable to testify against their tormentor. Some offences are seen as too trivial to report, for example, shoplifting, small acts of vandalism and minor brawls. With certain incidents there is a social stigma attached and the victim would be unwilling to press charges

Through the use of employee monitoring, the amount of money lost to theft can be dramatically reduced.While electronic monitoring in the work place may contribute to employee stress, the benefits are far greater then the disadvantages. Not only do companies save money from employee theft, sabotage, and vandalism, employees can feel more confident that their coworkers who don't pull their own weight will be terminated. When the company and the employees both benefit from increased profits I would call this a win-win situation.

The disturbances that occurred in Clacton on Easter Monday 1964 showed how the media coverage blew the situation out of proportion and created mass hysteria and panic.

All the schools would have to do is switch the little kid's bus times with the high schoolers bus times. This is good because it would not cost the administration anymore money. Sports would be affected too, because the practices would get out later, which may affect an athlete's grades. The school buses, that take the team to other schools for competition, would have to leave earlier from school, possibly affecting an athlete's grades even more.

Graffiti art originated in the late 1960's, and it has been developing ever since. However, it is not readily accepted as being art like those works that are found in a gallery or a museum. It is not strictly denied the status of genuine art because of a lack of form or other base aesthetic

in childhood and adult criminal behavior. Children were divided into four groups. The first three groups were based on where conduct problems were displayed. The first group was made up of children who displayed conduct problems in school. The children’s behavior was rated by their teachers in the sixth grade and again in the ninth grade on a three point scale. For the second group a child was considered to have a conduct problem in the community if they had been referred to the Child Welfare Committee as having conduct problems, (such as theft, larceny, vandalism, and substance abuse) before the age of 15 years old. The third group were children who displayed conduct problems in both the
