Children's Commissioner supports taggers rights
This Children's Commissioner we have is surely an idiot. She believes teens consider that tagging is a "legitimate" art form, and she believes there is history and social commentary behind what she called "these art forms". She says that tagging is done in places that young people are alienated from. That's what she told a parliamentary select committee this week.
So, its the fault of alienation, huh.Kids are alienated around parks designed for kids that taggers congregate in to get away from alienating environments prior to tagging them. Eeek! That explains why our kids parks are tagged every month.
Cindy Kiro wants to "appropriately balance the rights of property owners and the rights of children and young people". Anyone knows where Kiro lives - I`ll send a tagger around to see where the balance lies when it is her property being tagged.
