Art as a Mental Disorder and Criminal Act

Dear Editor,
The campaign against freedom and common sense has reached new obscene heights with the arrest of Takeshi Miyakawa. He was arrested after installing his artwork in various locations around New York. Even more insulting, the court actually ordered a psychiatric evaluation! Is art is now a criminal offense and a mental disorder? We should not tolerate such blatant abuse of power. It is another step in the destruction of civil society, following the Republican war against women, under the guise of moral rectitude, democracy being sold by the courts to the highest bidders, and the Democratic administration that’s supports indefinite detention without charges This could easily be seen as a conspiracy against the public being waged by money-hungry politicians and the extremely rich. The endless mantra of fear, ”if you see something…” , has produced a truly insulting twist. Just a week ago, records were set in auctions here in New York with Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” was sold for $120 million, Rothko’s “Orange Red Yellow” went for $90 million and the police think it is important to arrest an artist. I can only hope that the NYPD and the Bloomberg administration will come to their senses and apologize. It boggles the mind to think that in New York, art capital of the world such a travesty of justice could be allowed to pass unchallenged.
