Zero tolerance watch

Kids, graffiti is bad, mmm-kay? But Jesus H. Christ, arresting a 13-year-old for writing “okay” on her desk??? The poor kid was handcuffed and placed under arrest in front of her classmates in Dyker Heights, then chained to a pole at the 68th Precinct Station House for three hours.

The real shame is that she got busted for such lame graffiti! Back in my day (in the dark ages when we used punch cards for computer class), kids made the effort to write bad-ass graffiti on their desks, using racial and sexual ephithets that would make Don Imus blush. If this is the sorry state of teenage rebellion today, we’re in serious trouble.
