Brazilian Cops Unleash Street Justice On Tagger, NYC Tabloid Is Overjoyed

A video was posted online of cops in Brazil reportedly spray painting a graffiti writer’s face as punishment for tagging a police station. And the Daily News couldn’t be happier. The tabloid notes that the “wannabe Banksy” was “dealt a taste of his own medicine” and how it “looks like karma came back around.” While it’s undoubtedly stupid to tag a police station, even a newspaper like the News shouldn’t be advocating vigilantism by way of Volatile Organic Compounds. That’s cruel and very, very toxic.
