$400K for a stencil cutout that a 3rd grader can make in 30 minutes? Where I live $400K will buy a new 2000 sq ft house with a swimming pool, 2 new Cadillacs and enough left over to take a world cruise. What some people think is valuable I will never understand.

He wasn't paying for artwork , he was paying for children, the art sales are how the money is laundered.

That I believe is correct and I believe there are other artists that are selling their "work."

Come to think of it, all the folks paying for Karas art are suspect.

All the high priced art is for nefarious purposes, money laundering at the very least.

Here's what an artist has to say: http://www.mileswmathis.com/launder.pdf

Do you know where I can find a stencil of a rebel solider stabbing a Confederate flag into a black teenager? http://www.g-zine.si/wp-content/uploads/KW_VMG_2015-f-810x300.jpg

I have nothing to contribute other than this semi-relevant funny pic.

The researchers here are a compliment to us all. This is the real world we live in. Thumbs up for yet another good thread.

Side point: It's funny how the "teenage" mutant ninja reptile-turtles love PIZZA and are each named after ARTISTS. Isnt it?

Every thing in entertainment and media has gotten to the point of having extremely disturbing double meanings that one wouldn't know if one didn't accept the fact of vile evil being a reality on our planet....
