Borf arrested in NYC?

The CityPaper reports that John Tsombikos, aka Borf, was arrested in New York City on November 15 for vandalism. Should this be true, it would seem that this cannot help Tsombikos when he is sentenced a week from today for his D.C. vandalism. Borf tags have also been spotted in Boston. Still no reports of Borf tags in Great Falls, Va. where Tsombikos lives.

    If only I had Borf’s parent’s money & car, I could drive out to Great

    Falls and tag his town with “FORB.” Justice? No, but at least

    then his folks would understand how wrong it is for them to enable him.

    Like Like I

    said before, they should get the smae same, or more punishment as he –

    they’re bankrolling his vadalism.

    The dull streets of DC? What city do you live in? K Street is ugly, yes, but this city is alive with real, vibrant communities that don’t need vandalism to make them more “hip.” All I have to say to people who support graffiti is this: when can I come over and vandalize your house?
