Murderous Nutcase was a Graffiti Nobody

February 13th, 2011 by

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.

    Not only was this kid a murderous piece of shit, but he was a big time toy. His graffiti sucked and he had no respect for the game.
