Don't Litter Graffiti

Crime is something entirely created by society, and sometimes it doesn't necessarily reflect that societies norms. In this oxymoronic picture, someone has 'broken the law' writing a message that might otherwise be considered helpful to a certain areas residents. For example, if this neighborhood experienced a lot of littering (which is also a crime) and requested a sign from the city and wasn't given one, this vigilante may have actually benefitted that neighborhood by reminding people not to litter by artfully writing "No littering" in graffiti on the wall. Even though this graffiti is a crime, the majority of people might not see it as an eyesore, but a much needed reminder to the residents and visitors to not throw trash on the ground. Crime or beneficial art? You decide...
