Bad Graffiti of the Week

I recently found this gem at 1st & Warren Place:

Here's what I think happened: some dumbass was fighting the Power and sticking it to the Man with some rebellious spray painting, thinking about how much he was expressing himself when all of a sudden, somebody screams, "Cops! Run!" And the masterwork is left unfinished, just like that famous painting of George Washington by Gilbert Stewart or The Adoration of the Magi by da Vinci, except this is bad graffiti and those are works of art. Also, Stewart and da Vinci probably weren't running from the cops. Well, maybe da Vinci was. But otherwise, all works are remarkably similar in every respect except all of them.

This bit of badness has been up for several weeks now and my only question is why the Horton Smith Law Office people haven't done anything about it. Is there a city-wide shortage of white paint? Or is there more street cred attached to having bad graffiti on the side of your building? I have many other questions but I'll save them for some other time.

Perhaps they are regarding this as evidence in part of an ongoing investigation.
