"FUCK APD" graffiti spotted in Edgewood Courts, police investigating

383 Police were in Edgewood Courts this evening, taking photographs and asking questions about some graffiti that says "FUCK APD" on a wall near the playground, according to bystanders.  Copwatch received a call at 7:40 from someone who said police were at the playground photographing people.  The sidewalks also sported graffiti in the same color that said things like "1500 block".  By the time copwatch arrived, police were already gone. 


A few blocks away, at the corner of Foote and Wesley streets, the COPS unit of APD, responsible for making a show of "community outreach" was stationed all day with two vans and multiple cars, and a table set up.  No one approached or spoke to them that copwatch members are aware of.

Re: "FUCK APD" graffiti spotted in Edgewood Courts, police investigating

This appeared the morning of May 8th? that's exactly one month after they beat octavious up and pepper sprayed the kids. Which means today, the 9th, is one day after the riot.

Advice to the vandalists:

1) All materials should be wiped down with rubbing alcohol prior to the action. This is the only way you can be sure all finger prints have been removed from your tools. After you rub the tools down with rubbing alcohol, you should only handle them with gloves on.

2) Dispose of all incriminating evidence afterword. The mob is famous for dropping guns at the scenes of crimes. This is because if you are stopped by cops a few blocks later, you won't have evidence on your person. This is hugely important. If you use a rock, you avoid the risk. But if you're using spray paint or a hammer, for instance, it's best to leave the evidence at the site. In a recent attack on a Nike outlet in Portland, for instance, the vandals left their baseball bat at the scene of the action. If you end up getting home with the potential-evidence (not advised) then you probably don't need to destroy the tool if it's a regular household item. Regardless, if your house is raided, everything that could possibly be destructive will be seized.

3) When talking about plans to attack or vandalize shit with your co-conspirators, don't do it around cell phones or computers. These technologies can be used to eaves drop on you and you don't want that. Furthermore, after the action is over you should check in with your cohorts to discuss how you all feel and if there are relevant next steps (posting a communique, calling news, follow ups etc.). Other than that, you should not talk about the action again. Even with the people you did it with. David McGowan was convicted when he reminisced in the vaguest sense imaginable with a former alleged ELF cohort who had turned informant.
