Graffiti // Friday, July 27, 2012
Ket, Noxer and Tres painted a permissioned mural with the word “Murderers” and plainclothes NYPD officers have taken it upon themselves to buff it. The mural consisted of several tombstones and coffins with epitaph names that included the NYPD, the EPA, Halliburton and Monsanto, to name a few.
