Vitiating Acts #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z
Raising his hand, he instructed the group to hang back.
He circled around the block and asked them to move only when he was certain that nobody was watching them.
The guys spread out and stealthily moved towards their target.
At his signal, the group covered the cars and walls with graffiti and hate messages.
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Crime Stories in 55 Words.
Today’s story, V is for Vandalism…

More than often such the perpetrators of such vandalism get away with it. Good one, Shilpa!

Good one Shilpa!! We find these vandals in every city, every town…..rightfully defacing what isn’t even remotely theirs.

They have seen so many buildings… Even trains defaced by grafitti. They do work stealthily.

An unexpected twist in the tale, again! You are brilliant at it, Shilpa!:)

Phew I was actually relieved that nobody was harmed and it was just graffiti! You’re quite good at this. Even with the image I didn’t guess the end 🙂

So much of this happens these days. When will these hate crimes stop?

Love your expertly crafted flash fiction. Another great one! Those awful vandalizing graffiti artists are everywhere in every country, it seems. Some even think of themselves as great artists and have groups.

I actually love the graffitti when its done on walls; love how it springs up in unexpected corners of the markets and lanes where one frequently visits.
Vandalism on the other hand is such a big no no!!!
Expertly told as usual Shilpa!!

Oh my….that’s terrible that these self-appointed morale brigade walk away scot free after such acts.

I actually feel we have less of this in India… probably because there are too many other ways to show hate rather than just hate-art! 🙁

A lot happens in Bangalore too. Vandalism is not right but sometimes, there is art and not a hate message. That’s the part I like 🙂

This happens so often and they get away with it easily! Why dont they realize that they have no right to do that?

I expected they were planning some robbery or some other crime but this was a different twist. Another good one Shilpa. 🙂

Vandalism is considered a criminal offense, and rightfully so, but I saw this Dance series – Step Up – and one of those movies featured a dance crew who used this kind of graffiti art and harmless vandalism as their “signature”. It was actually quite creative, even though they were on the police wanted list.
Anyway, I got tied up with work yesterday, so couldn’t complete my V post. Do visit it today @ A to Z of Happiness: Values. Happy AtoZing!

very common in our places, the culprits sending hate messages are never caught.

This kind of graffiti is disturbing. But some can be quite artistic.
