What do you think about police arresting and charging Keith Haring's Ghost?
Just shows how out of step they are with the rest of the city. Busting him was one thing, but the way they spread the news and unmasked him on social media was more Jackboot than Jacksonville.

Did he break the law? Yes he did. Nothing really new here. He is a very talented artist, and was recreating art originally done by Keith Haring, which were created to raise awareness. Goal accomplished. Many artists throughout time have done similar things, and have likewise suffered similar consequences. He could have gotten permission, or maybe not in Jax, but hey, artists are renegades. The charges however be lessened to misdemeanors, and he should honestly not have to do any jail time. He helped raise awareness, and wasn't hurting anyone. Cut the guy some slack. Friday, March 28, 2014|Report this
