Guts to say what most might be thinking

A Christchurch councillor is in the firing line for vocalising what I daresay crossed a few of our minds.
Everyone is feeling sorry for the kid and his family, but if the kid was not tagging, he would still be alive

Whilst I will not condone murder, the fact remains that the tagger victim was allegedly undertaking a criminal action, defacing somebody's hard won property and obviously had no respect for that. In the heat of the moment, the arrested man appears to have caught, fought and killed the tagger.

I say well said by the councillor, but now vociferous do-gooders will have their piece, pillorying him with equally inflammatory comments. His comment is not "silly and emotional", as I see current solutions are not working with these criminal property actions occurring everyday. Certainly endlessly wasting ratepayers taxes to "educate problem taggers about street art" is not a viable solution.

a person's life is not worth any amount of property.
