Rob Schimschock…(and anyone else for that matter) should read the novel (based on the life of a real artist noted for painting murals without permission) and his insights on the politics of art…The Horse’s Mouth by Joyce Carey.

Subject them to violent scenes? What about all the video games these kids were raised on? How does anyone expect them to act any other way.
This is the ‘bully’ generation now in chronological [only] adult form.

That is so wrong. I hope people show up to protect it if it hasn’t already been defaced. Down the road when the wingnuts grow up or expire maybe defaced historical figures and murals can be restored and or re cast and repainted.
