    “Taggers” were once considered “lite-weight” at least that’s what I thought. NO MORE. You just have to STOP and THINK B4 you put yourself in harms way..use the cell, snap a pic, get the heck out! Sometimes we react without thinking..with good intentions. I hope this guy is o.k. Box cutter…looks like that would be more ‘slashes’ than ‘stabs’.
