New Graffiti Laws

GRAFFITI will become a specific offence and people under 18 will need to prove spray paint cans are needed for work when they are purchased, under new laws introduced into the Victorian Parliament yesterday.

But the proposed laws have been branded “heavy handed” by Liberty Victoria for reversing the long-held legal principle of the presumption of innocence.

“The presumption of innocence has a very long and honourable history and I don’t think it is a good idea for politicians to jump in on the spur of the moment and reverse it just because there is public irritation about a particular form of conduct,” Liberty Victoria president Julian Burnside, QC, said.

What bullshit.

  1. Yet another case of politicians blowing hot air over minor issues instead of focusing on what really matters (climate change, the water crisis, etc), but I don’t see how this will change things. Whether or not “graffiti” is a specific offense, it is still up to the judges to decide on the punishment and they have mostly been lenient in the past. As for the paint, well, as long as you know where to shop you’ll be alright. What worries me more are the plans to introduce spot fines of $2500 (!) for anyone found carrying spray paint on public transport without being able to prove it’s for legitimate purposes…

  2. Support the graff scene, buy paint for under age kids! It’s whats going to happen any way. Why don’t we just outlaw aerosol art?
