Find these ratbags

A little job for the Army…find these ratbags and dob them in.


Christchurch police have footage of three men, who allegedly left a trail of tagging around central Christchurch – including on earthquake memorials.

The video and still images show the men in areas where fresh graffiti was found on August 3. 

The sites include C1 Espresso, fencing, power boxes, traffic barriers and most controversially – on the sign outside the CTV building site.

Senior Sergeant Phil Dean says the trio covered a wide area in the city.

“We have them on footage, both stills and also video footage, of them acting suspiciously around the areas where these other tags have been recorded.

“These tags are the same as the ones that are on the CTV site.”

      find out where they live , then return the favour to their precious belongings.

        Brave assumption to think anything losers like this have will actually be theirs

          Rip there (their) pants down and spray paint there gonads.

    Taggers are cunts.. fortunately police take it really seriously which is just fantastic!

    You could always lock them up in a 0.8m3 sized space for a few days, let them experience being trapped in rubble.

    • Oooh, I like this suggestion.

    Looks like John Campbell, Duncan Garner and Guyon Espiner to me.

    yep the local cops have a big folder of all the tag signatures and over time they have linked them to a lot of individuals so you three its only a matter of time that the two taggers specialists will have you by the short and curlies. the best one we had was a stupid idiot who reached up to tag above the door but didn’t realise they was a camera looking right at him on the other side and we got a very good face shot and him in 7 days

      The solution is to charge them, convict them and then go them civilly for reparation. A bill for repairing the damage they have done will have them thinking about what they have done. Don’t waste time with criminal reparation, some soft cock judge will award less the 1% and they will just laugh at it, as well as never pay it.

      Especially as they will not have a spare 10-20 thousand and the bad credit rating will stay with them for a while.

        Young lad in Christchurch Court got handed a bill of $1500 recently to pay for tagging clean up. But it was not only me says young man.
        The Beak looked down at him and said, Here is what you do, get your mates who were tagging to have a whip around to help you pay for the clean up or see that nice Policeman over there, go and tell him your mates names and when we have you all before the court I will split the bill up between all of you.
        Thatsw how it should work.

    I have no problem on turning the can on them, in there hair, on there clothes there dick etc and push the can up there bum. They are scum and should be treated as such.

    It was good of the fat one to wear such an identifiable jumper.

  • Wilfully damaging any memorial is bad enough, but this is an especially low act. I have also blogged the photos, and encourage everyone to publicise them by whatever means are available to them. The internet is a very powerful tool for cases such as these.

    Time to bring back public lynchings

    Because they do it for peer recognition of their “work”, I placed a sign which read “The author of this scribble has a tiny penis” above tagging on my garage door. Haven’t had a problem since.
