Graffiti artist?

Miami Beach graffiti artist Israel Hernandez-Llach caused thousands of dollars in damage to buildings in Miami-Dade and Broward.

If Hernandez-Llach, 18, was so proud of being an artist, why sneak around in the middle of the night to vandalize someone’s else’s property? Why have lookouts? Why run from the police? I guess he didn’t want to have another arrest. The consequences were unfortunate.

As for family attorney Todd Falzone, he does not get the real problem and does not address it.

People have to learn to respect each other and their property.

It is nice to see that Miami Beach Police Chief Oates is bringing change to the department by buying new Tasers and changing procedure in how they are used because Hernandez-Llach went into cardiac arrest after being tasered.

These are fresh ideas and a new thought process about how to patrol Miami Beach.

It is a shame that Hernandez-Llach didn’t change his ways before it was too late.
