In the second one, the guy was daft enough to let the camera get a partial shot of his face. I'm sure an anonymous forward to the BTP and the Met would suffice.

As for the first video, there is still enough evidence in there for the TOC's and the police to correlate their evidence and secure a few convictions.

Scum.

Sent his email to Youtube. Won't make a pennyworth of difference but it is worth a try.

Why are you allowing videos of graffiti vandals to be broadcast on the net? This is a very irresponsible attitude to take IMHO and by broadcasting them you could be prosecuted as 'accessories after the fact'. Do you not monitor the content of your uploads from folk?

When I uploaded Underground Seth to YouTube it was up instantly, so I presume they just check the videos in a queue one by one, and if it is offensive then delete it, rather than just having it off anyway.

Looks like UK graffists are a lot than Singapore. All I can tell you till now there is a bridge decorate by graffists (legal ones and paid by the goverment), also Singapore Historical Museum is also have some graffti which are legal but the the museum will take the graffti off when the event is over. Here there is no way that the graffists can vandalise our trains and depots. 7/24 of security camera, depot are filled with lots of security alarm.

Just out of interest saw a newspiece the other day (From a few months back) about how Rickmansworth was being turned into 'An army style fortress' The newspiece also stated that this was effective in deterring graffiti artists. Does anyone know the 'Hotspot' is on the Underground. After looking at various footage I see quite a few D Stocks being sprayed, I would assume this is Upminster?

Cheers

SPAM THIS EMAIL ADRESS

NOW!

Its the admins address of the site the video above came from

SPAM IT!
That's just as bad as being a graffitist yourself; indeed it's hatemongering and starting a flame war! Spam is hardly funny, indeed I've abandoned many an e-mail address because I apparently need viagra, women’s lingerie, German beer, drugs, and my many bank accounts with Alliance & Leicester, TSB, Sainsburys, Barclays, Abbey National and NatWest need my information.

If you want to do something better than spam, take a dump onto a shovel, place it inside an envelope, and post it to the bugger, that'll pee him off. ;):D

Do you need that many, and is there actually anything to put in them? :p

Here we go, label them all chavs because they're teenagers who DON'T have the same interests as you lot. Not being funny but I wouldn't class them as chavs, all I'll say is at least they're not standing on street corners and bus stops getting gurned up and attacking members of the public, they're doing something with their time, as controversial as it may be.

Now time to watch me get slated :lol: I speak to a graf. artist from London on MSN (got to know him through other means, he only mentioned it one day and I found it quite interesting). He knows a few of the notorious NT crew, and they all seem sound - not the typical vandals, they see it as "art". I don't share the same view tbh, but he is a really interesting geezer to chat with, got some stories to tell.

BTW - the comments left on that youtube video - I *really* don't think they'll care what class of train it is, can't really see them thinking "oh noes, we got the class number wrong, what are we doing we should stop this at once" :lol: Fair play for speaking out though.

They are no better than hanging around on street corners, because what they are doing is illegal, criminal damage, and a nuisance generally. So in fact, they are worse than street corner veg.

If they want to do it so much, then surely they can accept paying the bill that runs into thousands of pounds per train to have their 'art' removed.

Or of course, we can hope a 'tragic' accident occurs while they are train surfing - not that that is particularly easy nowadays anyway with things like IC door covers!

Personally, legal or not, company policy or not, I'd applaud the guard for laying the lot of them flat out on the floor.

It's not until they get killed in some nasty way that their parents come out moaning about the railways having become experts on rail safety over night!
