Anthony “Chopper” Garcia was arrested in 2008 in Los Angeles after a homicide investigator was flipping through snapshots and saw a picture of Rivera’s chest tattoos. Displayed proudly across his chest is a depiction of a 2004 liquor store murder during which Rivera shot and killed another man.
Each key detail was right there: the Christmas lights that lined the roof of the liquor store where 23-year-old John Juarez was gunned down, the direction his body fell, the bowed street lamp across the way and the street sign — all under the chilling banner of RIVERA KILLS, a reference to the gang Rivera-13.
As if to seal the deal, below the collarbone of the gang member known by the alias “Chopper” was a miniature helicopter raining down bullets on the scene. (Los Angeles Times)
This week, Garcia’s cooperation in prison has led to the arrest of another man linked to a gang murder that the same investigator didn’t think would ever be solved. Now if they could only tell me what my tramp stamp means. It’s an arrow with “Entre aqui”. Damn, I love a good mystery.
“Notorious Los Angeles graffiti artist, Revok, was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday (April 21) on an outstanding warrant.
According to the L.A. Times, the graff artist (real name: Jason Williams) was preparing to board a plane to Ireland when police took him into custody on Thursday morning.
The warrant had been issued for “failing to pay restitution to victims of previous vandalism crimes,” said the paper.
Revok is currently being held in the Los Angeles County Jail in lieu of $320,000 bail.
Authorities claim he is a member of the notorious graff crew, MSK (Mad Society Kings).
In 2009, Revok was placed on parole for a felony vandalism charge in Indio. That same year, he was arrested at least two other times. Once in Australia where he had been on a vandalism spree over the course of a few days, but was caught by authorities at the airport as he was trying to leave. Cops said they knew he was leaving the country, because of tweets he wrote on his Twitter account.
Revok was arrested again in late November 2009 for “illegally possessing vandalism tools,” specifically spray can tips. Due to his probation, Revok was prohibited from possessing any type of graffiti contraband. He was arrested at a graffiti event, where he was the guest of honor.”
This is pure bullshit when a graffiti artist (legend) gets hit with a charge like this while cops have killed, raped, humiliated, and have taken advantage of people and get a $50,000 bail. People in the US need to stand up for shit like this. Reblog the fuck out of this if you find this completely bullshit.
