The “vandals” in their 20s who violently hacked at two trees in Inwood’s Isham Park have been captured. Apparently, they were¬†“bored” and “throwing the ax at the tree for sportsmanship and fun.” They were charged with criminal possession of an illegal gravity knife, criminal mischief, possession of a graffiti tool and making graffiti. Wait, what? This? If graffiti is still “writing or drawings scribbled, scratched, or sprayed illicitly on a wall or other surface in a public place,” then the NYPD’s understanding of “writing or drawing” is getting highly abstract.
