Most Deserving Treatment

vandalism

What should be the appropriate punishment for the 'fashinable' crop of art vandals?  A man accused of vandalizing a 1929 Pablo Picasso painting – an act that was caught on cellphone video – must remain jailed on $500,000 bonds because he is a flight risk, a Houston judge ruled Wednesday.

  Uriel Landeros, 22, is charged with graffiti and criminal mischief felonies in the June 13 incident. Prosecutors say he spray painted on "Woman in a Red Armchair" at the Menil Collection in Houston.  Each felony charge carries a sentence of two to 10 years in prison.

The vandalism was captured in a 24-second video taken by a bystander and posted on YouTube. The vandal left behind an image of a bullfighter, a bull and the word "conquista," which means "conquest" in Spanish.
