This Graffiti Writer is Spreading the Message that ‘Not All Cops Are Bad Cops’

In the wake of the execution-style murder of two policemen in Bedford Stuyvesant and the bevy of anti-cop resentment lately, one graffiti writer is out there with a pro-NYPD message. DJ Pumpkin – a prolific tagger across the Lower East Side – is spraying surfaces with the note “Not all cops are bad cops.”
We first discovered the positive vandalism in Freeman Alley late last week. DJ Pumpkin scrawled similar sentiments on the Rag & Bone canvas at East Houston and Elizabeth over the weekend. That tag is more of a memorial for the officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos who fell victim on Saturday afternoon. Both were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley (from Baltimore) attacked.
