The below piece is in Santa Rosa, CA and illustrates the situation of my good friend who just served time in Jail for writing on the pole of a street sign. He was arrested by Reno cops who belittled and profiled the shit out of him, most of all for being Mexican. As you may have noticed, I deeply despise how categories make people blind to what is really going on. Despite the fact that it was his first offense (ever, not just graffiti-related) the judge found the sentence of 10-days in jail to be adequate and fairly lenient. Why is Reno so persistent to cleanse itself of emergent culture and consistently sanitize itself to the point of economic collapse?
