THAT IS SO POO BEARED UP. PEEP DIS. COPS POO BEARED UP. WHAT DO COPS DO? USE THE MEDIA TO PORTRAY SOLE AS MERELY AN ARTIST AND NOT JUST A VANDAL. NOW, HAD SOLE BEEN CAUGHT HE WOULD BE JUST THAT. A VANDAL. THE COPS ARE THINKING THE ONLY WAY OUT IS TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE A MISTAKE AND SUGAR COAT IT THROUGH T6HE MEDIA. NOW SOLE DIED DOING WHAT HE LOVED. I THOUGHT I NEVER MET HIM BUT WHEN I TALKED WITH FLASH THE OTHER DAY, IT JOGGED MY MEMORY. I REMEMBER HIM AS A VERY NICE CAT. HAPPY. NOW IN MY EYES, HE WAS AN ARTIST. EVERYONE IS. BUT TO A COP YOU ARE A VANDAL. A NUSIENCE. PAPER WORK FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS IF THEY CATCH YOU. SOMEONE TO GET THEM OFF THE STREETS FROM CATCHING REAL CRIMINALS. UNTIL YOU ACCIDENTALLY JUMP FROM A ROOF INTO A DOO-DOO-BROWNTY RIVER. THEN YOU ARE MR. NICE GUY. MY POINT IS THAT THE COPS ARE USING THE MEDIA TO SAY THEY ARE SORRY THAT A PERSON WHO WAS WELL KNOWN, RESPECTED AND SO FULL OF TALENT WAS KILLED IN PURSUIT. IT'S BULLDOO-DOO-BROWN! YOU TELL ME THIS. IF YOU DONT KNOW HOW TO SWIM, WOULD YOU RISK GETTING CAUGHT OR JUMP INTO A DOO-DOO-BROWNTY RIVER? I THINK SOLE HAD THE SMARTS ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER THAN TO JUMP INTO THE RIVER. AND NOW THE COPS USE THE MEDIA SO THEY WONT LOOK LIKE THE BAD GUYS. THROW SOLE UP ON A HIGH PEDESTAL AND THE COPS SNEAK AWAY UNDER IT. THERE SHOULD BE A PERMISSION WALL DEDICATED TO SOLE ON THE POLICE STATION WHERE THE COPS WHO GAVE CHASE ARE FROM. R.I.P. SOLE, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. IT WAS A PLEASURE MEETING YOU THOSE COUPLE OF TIMES. PEACE...MAD CREW

May 10, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- People have been stopping to get a closer look at the work of a British graffiti artist known as "Banksy." His art is displayed on the side of a building at the corner of Randolph and Peoria. It's an image of a baby stroller tumbling down a staircase.

Banksy's work is often satirical art on topics like politics, culture and ethics. His work is seen all over Great Britain and has now been popping up in various places in the U.S. and Canada.

Chicago police are looking into the graffiti.

5 arrested for graffiti on Navy Pier Ferris wheel

CHICAGO (MCT) Five students who attend a Southwest Side career training program were arrested after defacing the Ferris wheel on Navy Pier while riding it Tuesday afternoon, police said.

Brienna Davis, 21, and Eltakus Cook, 19, both of the 3300 block of South Kedzie Avenue, were charged with criminal defacement of property, police said. Three juveniles were also charged.

The five are accused of scrawling graffiti, including the words "Job Corps get baked," on the seats of the ride, according to police.

Authorities discovered the defacement -- all written with a gold-colored marker -- and they were arrested at 4:48 p.m., police said. The five attend Job Corps at the Kedzie Avenue address.

Job Corps is a no-cost education and career technical training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 through 24 improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training, according to their website.

A representative for the program was not immediately
available.

Chicago city officials say graffiti-removal crews are taking a new approach to the job.
It's known as "blitzing" and involves a ward-based grid system where officials map out service calls before dispatching crews.
City officials say the systematic approach increases efficiency and productivity by reducing travel times between jobs and fuel costs.
The approach has been used by Chicago's Department of Streets and Sanitation for tree-trimming and tree-removal. City commissioners say it's reduced the backlog of service calls.
City officials say graffiti-removal crews in the first week visited 18 wards, blasted more than 1,000 pieces of graffiti and painted over 1,400 others.
