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.

Dave, quite honestly you need to give up blogging forever because you evidently have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. This isn't the 1950's anymore and ideas like yours about how to deal with taggers are as dead as the dodo. Did you know women in NZ can vote and homosexuality isn't illegal? That is how uninformed you sound.

Perhaps you need to explain further. I never made suggestions on how to deal with taggers - what do you suggest. I welcome criticism, but I welcome your views even more - even if you do hide behind anonymity.

its very difficult to deal with vagrant youth, when i had problems i literally had to shift into the office block, and wake up at night when they wanted to burn and smash the place, confrontation did not work, i actually had to plead with them to be fair to me, for instance i would say you can skate around here but is it ok if you don't smash all our windows, they sort of agreed,
