Graffiti artist ” vamp ” causes £250,000 damage & faces 3 years in jail ?

I did a post roughly this time last year on graffiti artist Vamp , today the tabloids have published an article of kristian holmes a £60,000 surveyor leading a secret life who was living the live of Britain’s most prolific graffiti artists , talking numerous trains out of service & posing as maintenance Network rail workers wearing high visibility jackets to avoid suspicion. He was arrested in 2010 with police searches finding vast amounts of evidence spray paint nozzles etc , One of the prosecutor’s quoted the total damage caused was around £250,000 ( ridiculous ) .. but anyway to the main part of the story Mr Homes a father of two  being jailed for 2 & a half years for graffiti ? Also what frustrates me even more is Stuart Hall who caused decades of abuse only gets 15 months ? train surfaces can get cleaned but you can’t wipe away abuse . Really though what are they trying to say .. Free Vamp !!
