The use of technology to catch criminals such as graffiti artists is an example of good utilization. While graffiti is an art form, if it is painted on a surface that does not belong to the artist, then it is vandalism. The use of technology to catch criminals such as this one may prevent more crimes like unwanted graffiti.
Technology has changed the world. It has created opportunities that were not even thinkable throughout history. IT enables individuals to work, research, shop, etc. And in doing so has also helped millions in various ways. One great example being the graffiti artist. Through the progression of technology someone has answered for their wrong doing.
The point of graffitti is to make an unattractive or degraded public space attractive or meaningful. She did the inverse, and knowingly. Its simple vandalism of public space, and theft of that experience from the public. She should have been prisoned to send a clear message that her contempt for the rest of us isnt acceptable.
No, technology is not being used to its fullest in this instance. The banning of a graffiti artist from 20% of the United states after a Reddit user's investigation is not the best use of technology. In fact, this is an example of how technology is being wasted when it can be used for more important things.
