Tagger Jailed

At Leeds Crown Court today idiotic tagger Joseph Binney was jailed for three months for a 14-month spree of criminal damage, spray painting trains across England with his Orgie and Aids tags (title link). He will serve that term concurrently with a two-year prison sentence for violent disorder after the Trades Union Congress protest march in London last March (CLICK). With this plonker out of circulation for a while, railway companies will save thousands of pounds. He isn't a graffiti artist, merely a thick tagger. Artists like Banksy enhance a neighbourhood. Taggers just make a mess, which is often gang related and a warning not to trespass.
