BLOG ENTRY Dec. 12, 2014 The murder of Delbert Rodriguez.
This is just crazy, I was in town painting literally 1/2 a block away from where this went down, and a friend was there and took the pictures you see of the kid under the car being used without permission in all these articles, he also has video of the aftermath from across the street. Within 24 hours of him posting the picture on his Instagram his account was deleted by because the Police pressed them to delete the “evidence of an ongoing Police Investigation”. Where I come from that’s called a cover up… If you know anything about Instagram, a picture that violates its rules ( that will get pulled by IG) can sit up on your feed for weeks before its finally yanked and all you get is a silly warning. The fact that my friends whole account was deleted within 24 hrs. is proof enough for me that the Miami PD was trying to manipulate the story that would unfold as the sun came up the following day. Now seeing as how they keep trying to cover their asses with confiscating nearby surveillance footage and saying he was wearing all black and he was behind parked cars etc etc is all fabricated noise that cops know how to do to put things into their favor. They went out of their way on a damage control campaign attempting to keep things together b4 it got out of hand. This might have worked in the 80s or 90s but today there’s too much free distribution of information. This is why all of these accounts of bad cops are surfacing now, because the ability to lie and present false stories is being taken away from the PD.
And before any of my readers on here say some dumb shit about “if he wasn’t committing a crime….blah blah” let me explain something here, this is the LARGEST street art festival in the WORLD currently, where artists from everywhere, amateurs up to professionals come and paint walls for free throughout the year, this poor 21 yr old kid, was doing what any kid on the come up would do to try to channel his creativity into becoming someone he might admire one day. He was basically trying to use a language that he admired but didn’t yet fully know how to express himself with, but was going thru the motions that many many many success stories before him followed… This could have easily been me at 21. So before anyone says shit about graffiti being a crime, think about how cool you all think I am today, my “amazing art and funny drawings and crazy characters” and how cool everyone wants to be talking to me in person and asking me about what I do, and how did I get to where I am today. I get this from “adults” every single day of my life, but we all conveniently put aside that in the eyes of the law and the Gov. I was a criminal like this for easily OVER 20 yrs. while everyone else I grew up with went out and did the “normal” routine to, I went a different direction to finally be able to be in a position where companies, musicians, artists and celebrities now support me. People envy the end result, but don’t want to admit it’s trials and tribulations on the path to success… Everyone wants to kiss Banky’s ass today, but no one wants to talk about the years when that guy was a Graffiti vandal writing his name with spray paint on people’s property. Graffiti is art, and the truth is nothing is ever “damaged” that can’t be covered with 2 strokes of paint. Paint goes over paint always, Period. If a wall is white, and it’s going to be painted white again next week, my name on it isn’t “destroying” shit.
There’s so much to be said about this, I could go on and on….
but mainly Im disgusted this shit keeps happening… I’ll leave off with this-
Killer cops roam free. CIA torturers get promoted & NSA spying continues. Whistleblowers rot in prison. Jails open as schools close……
