[The Daily News reports that very few subway graffiti artists are getting arrested lately], and those who are do little or no jail time. So everybody grab your cans and take to the streets! The article reads:


“Late last year, NYPD Transit Bureau Chief James Hall said cops made 28 arrests for major subway graffiti attacks - defined as hits that take trains out of service. But the list of suspects that the NYPD's press office subsequently produced at The News' request has the names and arrest dates of just 15 individuals.”


According to City Councilman Peter Vallone (D-Queens), known for his graffiti intolerance, some judges don’t take graffiti cases seriously.
