Frustrated Artists

Coxsoft Art - ASBO's Suck! (2006) with apologies to William BouguereauOne of the criticisms levelled against ASBO's (Anti Social Behaviour Orders; it's a UK thing) is that they merely push crime elsewhere. Two yobbos whose graffiti had caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to Network Rail and who were banned from local railways and from carrying spray-paint were recently jailed for three years each for robbing a man and spray-painting his body. The convicted pair's ASBO's merely diverted them from painting railway property to enforced body painting. Now that they're safely locked away, they should be good candidates for art therapy. Maybe with a touch of electro-shock negative reinforcement....
