Wacky Nevada Legal Adventures, Part 3,255

Ted Marshall owns a warehouse in downtown Las Vegas. He has a barb-wire fence around it to keep out vandals, but apparently it doesn't work very well, because he has had to paint over graffitti six times. The most recent vandal, however, painted something Marshall kind of liked, so Marshall decided to just leave it there.

So the City of Las Vegas fined him $900.00. Meaning the city is, basically, worse than the vandals. They can use government power to victimize him.
