If you haven’t heard by now, a real freak broke loose this last weekend and went on a murderous rampage. Early coverage of the story did not mention though that he had prior arrests for graffiti:
(CNN) — A New York man fatally stabbed three people, slashed at least five others, hit and killed one man with a car and hijacked two vehicles before being wrestled to the ground early Saturday while trying to break into the cab of a subway car, police said.
Maksim Gelman, who is unemployed and known to authorities mostly as a graffiti artist, was arrested aboard a northbound train in Manhattan around 9 a.m. Saturday, about 28 hours after he allegedly began a spree that spanned three New York City boroughs, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
So just what did this a-hole write? At press time, no one seems to know. One all city street bomber only had this to say: “He was a nobody in the graff game.”
I knew there had to be something to this guy when they said he crossed tracks while running from slashing yet another person on the subway.
