BLURB

To ensure a harmonious and adept society, justice must be enforced on every level. No longer can we leave these crimes unanswered. Defacement, vandalism, criminal alteration of historical monuments. What is physically lost to society by this wanton destruction pales in comparison to the waning of our civilized culture. How can we knowingly veer towards the path of unrestraint when our future—our children’s future—depends on the thoughtful persistence in retaining our values. We must deal those who would devalue our societal and physical structures a harsh reminder—yet we are instead rewarding these very deeds. Keep It Spotless ironically reaping a monetary reward of $1.8 million, but at what cost? We must indeed keep our walls, and our morals, spotless. I will be the restoration of our lax and failing system. I will clean our walls, and restore prudence. I will bring down the hammer of justice. [Mychaelangelo Norkus]
