It's a disgrace to mess up what is not yours. That's the great thing of living in Asia, people respect public means.

The problem is, it happens only 1~2% of the whole, and the rest 98~99% leads to increased crimes (Broken Window Theory)

Swiss man faces caning over Singapore graffiti
http://www.mysinchew.com/node/39990
2010-06-04 15:57'

SINGAPORE, Friday 4 June 2010 (AFP) - A Swiss man has been arrested in Singapore on suspicion of breaking into a high-security subway depot and spray-painting graffiti on a train, an offence punishable by caning, police said Friday.

"We confirm that a 33-year-old Swiss male national has been arrested in relation to the case," a spokesman for the Singapore Police Force told AFP.

No further details were available pending the investigation into the incident, which took place in May.

The Swiss embassy in Singapore had no immediate comment.

Subway operator SMRT said it was helping police with the investigation, but gave no further information.

The train has been scrubbed clean but a clip on video-sharing site Youtube -- still visible at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CV4JYKBEQo -- shows the vandalised train as it left a suburban station.

The Straits Times newspaper reported Friday that the suspect was believed to have cut his way into the depot, a restricted zone surrounded by fences topped with barbed wire.

Singapore, a close US ally, considers itself a prime target of Southeast Asian extremists and lists the train system among possible points of attack, along with the airport and US-linked establishments.

Vandalism is punishable in Singapore by three to eight strokes of the cane as well as jail terms of up to three years and a maximum fine of 2,000 Singapore dollars (1,424 US).

An American teenager, Michael Fay, garnered global headlines in 1994 when he was jailed and caned in Singapore after he was found guilty of vandalising several cars. Fay was caned despite a US appeal for clemency.

Not a fan of some of the more authoritarian aspects of Singapore, but this "artist" deserves what's coming to him.
*I'm surprised they let this train run on a revenue service. In Japan they would have kept in the depot until it was cleaned.

The artist knows the risk of getting caught in the Lion City but he happens to be a hardcore bomber and does have the guts of getting up and making his mark despite the penalties and security. In fact to some of them, having caned marks is like wearing a badge of honour.

I noticed the other pieces is by Banos, he's MOAS one of the dopest train painting crews in Scandinavia.

With most cases of Japanese trains, a few of them do run with graffiti on it as with the case of some JR trains in Tokyo.

Actually not JR trains there, first one appears to be Tokyo Municipal subway Asakusa line on a non-revenue run (lights off, no passengers), and later is a Tokyo Metro train at the shed.

Nothing "cool" about: first, breaking and entering, and second, vandalizing public property. It's been proven- when grafitti is allowed unchecked, it attracts other (more serious) crimes and blight. Because this stuff says to people:"we don't give a sh*t about this place or this train, you can do anything here, hey take a look at what I did, me me me!!" Simply said: Doing sh*t leads to bigger sh*t.

I don't favor canning or such measures. Prolonged house arrests, with electronic monitoring (and real jail time if violated), would do the job.

But I guess the ultimately measure is withdrawing every car/bus/tram/train that has been vandalized from service until it gets clean, even at expense of quality of service. Fares should be increased to cover such costs. The combination of such measures would then push the general public against these people, which it is what is ultimately needed.

But I still have no sympathy for those who don't respect third parties property rights.

The laws are different in Singapore and caning is the mandatory punishment for minor felony crimes. At least its better than getting the death penalty.

There was a time in NY during the mid 80s when the MTA decided to not run its fleet of bombed trains for a whole day.

Singapore wants extradition of Briton for graffiti

SINGAPORE (AP) – Singapore said it will seek to extradite a British man accused of spray-painting a subway car with an alleged Swiss accomplice last month.

A court issued an arrest warrant for Lloyd Dane Alexander for allegedly breaking into a train depot and vandalizing a subway car on May 16 with Oliver Fricker of Switzerland, Singapore Police Force said Tuesday in a statement.

Police said Alexander fled Singapore and authorities will seek to extradite him, depending on the extradition treaty Singapore has with the country where he is eventually located.

Police declined to give details on Alexander's age, profession or possible whereabouts. He likely fled to Hong Kong, the Straits Times reported Tuesday without citing a source for the information.

A Singapore court charged Fricker, 33, with one count of trespassing and two counts of vandalism Saturday. Fricker is free after posting bail of $100,000 Singapore dollars ($71,000). A preliminary hearing is set for June 21.

"Investigations disclosed that there is an accomplice who is at large," the police said. "He is a British national and left Singapore before the incident was reported to the police."

Singapore has a well-earned reputation for severe punishments for minor crimes. Vandalism carries a fine of up to SG2,000 ($1,415) or up to three years in jail — in addition to three to eight strokes of a cane.

Singapore caned American teenager Michael Fey for vandalism in 1994 — ignoring pleas for leniency by then President Bill Clinton — in a case that drew international attention to the country's harsh punishments.
