Lets say what Reefa is, a Vandal - Criminal, who was on drugs, resisting arrest and running from the law.  The reason he died from a non-lethal taser.   He was on drugs.  Good riddance to bad rubbish.

honestly look at it... it says pigs gone wild there is no misspelling done here as for the word reefa that is how he wrote it every street artist has their own individual name that they take pride in, that was his. There might be another street artist with the actual name reefer and street artist respect each others names as to not copy one another and if they do they add their own flare to it so instead of downing a kid who might I add has just been killed, you should be giving your condolences... R.I.P. Reefa, who's I personally made sure his art was published once before...

This should bode well for property values...

@DaveMB I didn't realize the penalty for vandalism is death. He was a kid, where's your humanity?
