I hear people say that graffiti is not vandalism, it is art, it just depends on how and where it is applied. Joshua Vasquez, 22, from East Los Angeles, decided to expand his artistic horizons. He went to Commerce, California. He stepped up to the glass door of the Commerce Aquatic Center and began scratching graffiti onto it.
On the other side of the glass (read that: can see through it) door was about 100 cops attending a class. The lecturer was telling them about "the importance of having backups when engaged in foot pursuits." At first, everyone thought the guy was waving to them through the glass. Nope, he was an involuntary demonstration of the lecture -- when he opened the door to scratch the other side, he was confronted by about 40 deputies and cops who chased in on foot until Vasquez collapsed. They threw him in the back of a squad car, where he kicked out the rear window. One of the arresting officers ventured that Vasquez might have mental problems. NAW, YA THINK?!?
