Artists and Criminals: Great Minds Think Alike

To be interesting, sometimes the artist is the bad guy....
Do you think that something is permissible simply because it makes an artistic statement?
Do you think that crime is always wrong?
Do you think there are gray areas? Perhaps located in an unused section of a Rhode Island shopping Mall?

Is it only wrong if you do it, but if you plan it out and don't execute it, then it's okay? Like Janice Kerbel's Bank Job?
What if it's on public property?

This kind of art will make you think. It's uncomfortable, maybe, and antisocial, but it does play its own role in society, I think. So does Bob Kerr.
