    Speak Up! - View Question #427

    printer friendly version

    Question: Can I get in trouble for writing/drawing with chalk on school walls without permission?

    Answer: The first question in regard to deciding if you will get in trouble for anything is how would you like it if someone did whatever you did, if it was your home or property that it was done to. Would you like it if someone wrote in chalk on your bedroom wall? Most people wouldn't, because they would have to go to the trouble to clean it up, it might not come off, etc. Look at the question concerning toilet papering someone's home (#38 in Other). If you mark up someone else's property, you could certainly 'get in trouble' because the person who owns the property won't like it, but you could also be charged with criminal damage and be subject to fines and jail time.

    it's called vandalism, ever heard of it? You have the right to express your thoughts as long as its not on someone elses property. And did you know that toilet papering someones property isnt considered vadalism, but egging is. toilet papering is fun and it's not illegal.
