run, bout it, run and if they catch you dont say your tag name, if you have to tell what you write make something up that wouldnt have any damage(minimal pernalty)
i just keep painting. if the person who saw me is coming my way, i start putting the cans in the backpack. if they come too close, i start walking away. if they pass by me and say nufin, i take the cans outta my backpack and re-start painting. Though i don't advise anybody to do this. last week, while doing a graff, some guy passed by me in a car, slowed down, stared at me, and kept going. when I was about 100M from the spot on another road than the one that lead to the spot, a cops' car went to the spot I was at. really fucked up :P

this is gonna sound like bullshit, but half an hour ago,
i was out tagging, by myself, and i see this mailbox next to some bushs,
i walk up casually, and i hear something shuffle in the bush next to the box,
i didnt notice at first, so i pulled out the mop unscrewed the cap, and i double check,
the bush and guess what it is. A FUCKING SKUNK. was in those motherfucking bushes.
i was like OH SHIT and jumped back like 2 meters. i dont think he was going to spray me,
he just looked scared. i literally LOL'd.
just got back.
but seriously just walk away like everyone else says, they get faster, you get faster. Unless it's someone in a uniform, hopefully then you're smart enough to run right away.
I was tagging the front roof of a shop right in the middle of the town centre here, and a bunch of drunks from the pub opposite started shouting 'OIIIIIII!! WTF!!!!!!!!' and I laughed like fuck, finished my tag and was gone.
Gave me butterflies in my stomach man, great feeling.
most of yall is fucked jus let em yell at ya and shit and then tell em to fuck off before you fuck em up and do another tag then leave
Run!!! if they catch you lie!.. me and a buddie were at a freight yard and he was piecing and i was taking pics.. soon enough all of the owrkers went on break and started driving down the road... on guy stoped so we booked it to my car and they waited at the end of the road ..luckily i had all the camera gear so i said we were taking pictures and they jsut let us go. So somwhere on a train there is a unfinished piece.
wear a disposable jacket/long sleeve shirt, in case you have to ditch it. hop 5 fences, chill. smoke a cigarette. pretend like you're on the phone. leave your paint somewhere in the bushes and once the scene cools down then you could chill the fuck out and jerk off when you get home.
happened to me last weekend. i was just going to town on this abandoned construction site when i noticed some kids across the street (about 8-9 years old) with flashlights. they shined them at my friends and me and went and told their dad we were out there. we didnt realize they told him. sure enough out the door comes some fat stupid redneck tellin us if we were ever caught "sniffing paint" again he would follow us home and call the cops. its a horrible feeling being caught by anyone. moral of the story... dont live in houston
man one time me and my boys were painting under some bridge that has a walkway for people, and we started painting and my friend forgot about looking for people, and next thing we know theres some old black lady standing right beside us. I almost shat myself and was about to run, but all she said was "make it a good one." And she luckily just walked away. I love you old black lady!
yak she mesh
Yo...every one said something that is total B.S. to anything and everything BUT really getting away. Like any of you ACTUALLY ran from any one if you we're ever caught.
iight...Here's some good tips...
RULES TO RUNNING/GETTING AWAY
#1- Keep your face concealed and away from all seeing eyes.
your face is like your I.D. on the street. Regardless, if it was a cop that SEEN you doing it, as for example IN THE PROCESS of doing what you we're doing, then you just wanna run...
Honestly, Run. But think smart of whats around you. Don't matter how FAST you think you CAN run, you should run smart. Run to HIDE not to run a Marathon.
If it's just a Bystander, Then pretty much ignore them, or Just Be out. If there not a Cop, Your pretty str8, but get out of there before they DO call cops.
#2- If they DO apprehend you, and ask you the stupid question, "WHY'D YOU RUN?" Or "WHY WE'RE YOU PAINTING THAT "BLAH BLAH BLAH"" Just play it off. that, You we're just painting. or just say beacuse it's what I WAS doing. Just try not to be a total smart-ass But keep your mouth shut the rest of the way into the Police Department (AFTER they read you your rights) if they end up taking you into questioning.
If they caught you IN the ACT of doing something, Thats all they can charge you with, doesn't matter HOW many times they SEE that same Tag/Throw-Up/Burner/Etc. With out !!ACTUAL SOLID PROOF!! your ahead of the game.
And if they SAY they got evidence, Ask to see it. They're supposed to show you.
#3- "YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT" So just shut up...They TELL you that first so just do it, and no matter what the COP'S may say, you don't HAVE to talk to them. It's your choice if you wanna stay silent. Hell, They can't arrest you again anyways for keepin your mouth shut?!
But if anything Main Keys to getting away if your spotted.
CONCEAL YOUR SELF AT NIGHT~
KEEP EYES AND EARS TO WHATS AROUND YOU~
AND REMEMBER...Your face is like your I.D...Don't slip up and get seen.
P.S.-Wacth out for Cameras... Thats the worst shiit.
THis is for my writers, and for Toys lookin to make it big.

my tip for getting out of a bad situation.
whenever you feel like you wanna run, walk silently. that is of course if you're not getting caught in the act. i had paint and slaps in my bag as these kids were burning in the back of a laundrymat, the kids ran inside while i just chilled there all nonchalant. of course they approached me, found my sakura, paint and slaps, and i said i found the bag over by blah blah blah and blee blee blee. i told them "if i knew there was something in there don't you think i wouldn't have stuck around like i did?" they mentioned that i had a good point, they took my paint let me keep the slaps and sakura. then they whacked me off violently. just kidding. but seriously.
LMAO. thats fucking great.
this old man booked me once, but its not the old man you wanna fuck with. its thoes fit ones that will knock you out in a spilt second, the ones that are always joggin' around and shit..
i got booked by one like that, best thing to do is act politely and suck up to them or say some bull shit like ' ill clean it next morning' or some stupid shit like that, and if they ask you for your name try to change the subject or give em some bull. if they follow you, thats your deccion right there..
in my case, i ended up bumping into the same guy like 10 times. every time i saw him he like chased me and i like hid in the bushes or skated the fuck down a hill.
stay up guys, take it easy and dont get booked
in my town ders alot of undercover cops cuz my town is like a tweaker town so dey need em to bust tweakers... dey also do a good job at catchin taggers too...
i usually ride a bike because u can go thru little spaces dat cars cant get thru... plus if u can bunny hop high u can bunny hop ovr liitle fences dat cars cant get past...
my friend wanted to go tagging with me this moarning so i finish my peace and 2 guys came so we booked it but they just wanted to talk but u never no we ran acroos the parking lot dived in the bushes hide from security and then did another bomb
