Two kids vandalized cars at a car dealership in Sioux Falls, SD causing $40,000 in damage according to Keloand.com. When the owner of the dealership, Mike Schulte, found out that the vandals were only 10 and 14 years old he changed his mind about pressing charges. When he met the 14-year-old boy he decided to change his life and give him a part time job and better transportation to set him on the right path instead of branding him a criminal.

The BrandalismProject, is a self-declared anti-advertisement art movement and has claimed responsibility for over 600 fake advertisements recently installed throughout Paris. The driving force behind the group's effort is the beginning of the UN Climate Change Conference.



"Amidst the French state of emergency banning all public gatherings following the terrorist attacks on 13 November in Paris, the 'Brandalism' project has worked with Parisians to insert unauthorized artworks across the city that aim to highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change," BrandalismProject said in a statement.

The project is a collaboration between 80 artists from 19 different countries and the targets include AirFrance, Dow Chemicals, and Volkswagen, which is getting a lot of attention for perpetrating an environmental fraud.

Grace Brett has had it with your un-yarned cityscape.

That's why the 104-year-old joined a group of 'guerilla knitters'. The group launched a public demonstration of civil disobedience by decorating various public places in small Sottish towns with knitted, self-made crafts.



The Daily Record tells how she got involved with such a radical display of art:

Grace, who has six grandchildren and 14 great-grandkids, was the oldest of the yarn bombers called the Souter Stormers.

Among the landmarks they decorated in Selkirk, Ettrickbridge and Yarrow were a red phone box and a statue of Sir Walter Scott.

The yarn bombing was part of the Yarrow, Ettrick and Selkirk festival. And Grace helped by creating knitted balls which were hung outside shop windows.

She said: "I liked seeing my work showing with everyone else and thought the town looked lovely."





Here's a video interview of her exploits:



Man blames Black Lives Matter for vandalizing his truck, but the twist is, he did it.

Yuck.
A man in central Texas reported his truck was vandalized by Black Lives Matter supporters Sept. 9, because he had decorated the vehicle with messages saying "Police Lives Matter".



Well, according to the local FOX News affiliate, it turns out that was a complete lie.

Scott Lattin, a disabled veteran, told Whitney police on Sept. 8 someone tagged his truck with "Black Lives Matter" and other graffiti because he displayed pro-police messages and symbols on his pickup.

But on Friday afternoon, Whitney police arrested Lattin on a misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.



Apparently, Lattin made the police report about the spray painting, then further vandalized his own truck before the news got the story.

Smart move.



"We had initial video when the officers took the report and then when we saw your story on Channel 4. When we looked at those two videos, there were some differences in those and that led us to take the investigation into a different direction," Bentley said.

Bentley said when they took the report there was no damage to the inside of the truck. But when FOX4 showed up, Lattin showed that the glove box was ripped off and the seats slashed.





Police arrested Lattin for making a fake police report and the damage totaled the vehicle, adding up to $5,000.

So, I guess the joke's on him??

Really, it was only a matter of time before someone stuck it to one of the major carriers. This incident reportedly occurred Saturday in Manchester, England.

Bonus: Don't miss the T-Mobile employee cowering in the corner until policeman arrive to handcuff Angry Guy.
