Krink på CNN

Finnes ikke embed, her er linken: Krink på CNN

For de som ikke kjenner historien; Craig Costello aka KR var/er en gammel traver i graffitimiljøet i San Fransisco-området, kjent for drippy(rennende) tags. Noen år tilbake lanserte han Krink – sølvblekk av egen oppskrift, og merket har vokst siden og utvidet vareutvalget til flere farger og artikler. Plutselig er denslags fint nok også for konservative Cnn, som tok en prat med Craig i et knøttlite innslag i deres “Small and Global” business-spalte.

Morsomt å lese Cnn’s fullstendig feilaktige, standariserte tekst som følger klippet:

A look at a former graffiti artist who went from the streets of San Francisco to art galleries around the world.

Swing and a miss!

    Fikk sett innslaget nå. For en erketypisk amerikansk måte å fremstille en sak på. Forøvrig kjedelig og en del info de kommer med som man ikke helt forstår seg på.

    I am talking about urban areas. My rule of thumb is that if the milmaan delivers mail on foot, police should patrol on foot. If the milmaan is in a truck, foot patrol probably makes little sense.Response time is largely a joke because people call after the fact. And then they may call family before police. And then the call has to get routed through an operator and a dispatcher. God only knows how many minutes elapse before the call even makes it to the cop.Of course how to prevent crime is the $64,000 question. What works depends on what the problems are. But short of specifics, I’m for anything that increases officer discretion and order maintenance (ie: broken windows), and officers’ knowledge of the people in the area they police. Police need to know, and too often don’t, who are the hard-core criminals, who are the working people, and who are those in between. Regardless of what works, we know damn well many things that don’t–sitting in cars waiting for somebody to report a crime, mandatory arrest for domestic violence, D.A.R.E.–and yet we keep doing them for political reasons.I agree some rapid response response is needed (for things truly in progress and also to back up other officers). But the number of officers that could cover that would be a fraction of the half to 2/3rd of the entire PD now waiting for the next call. Then it sure would be fun to figure out what to do with all those freed-up officers.
