Graffiti Artist Banksy Arrested In London; Identity Revealed In A Reddit AMA -

Banksy foi preso? A notícia é uma farsa


London, England — The elusive graffiti artist, political activist, film director, painter and long time fugitive that for years has gone by the pseudonymous name of Banksy, was arrested early this morning by London’s Metropolitan Police. After hours of questioning and a raid of his London art studio, his true name and identity have finally been revealed.
The City of London Police say Banksy’s real name is Paul Horner, a 35-year old male born in Liverpool, England. The BBC has confirmed this information with Banky’s PR agent Jo Brooks along with Pest Control, a website that acts as a handling service on behalf of the artist.
London Police Chief Lyndon Edwards held a press conference to answer questions about Banksy and how Horner was finally apprehended after all these years on the run.
“We had a 24-hour Anti-Graffiti Task Force monitoring different groups where Banksy was known to frequent. We received word that around 2am a group of individuals left a flat speculated to be one of Banky’s art studios. This group was followed by agents and once vandalism had occurred, we then arrested the group, 5 men total. These individuals all had ID on them except for one, and that is the one we believed to be Banksy,” Edwards said. “We then raided the studio where this group was last seen leaving from. Inside we found thousands of dollars of counterfeit money along with future projects of vandalism. We also found a passport and ID of a Paul Horner who matched the description of the man that we are currently holding.” Edwards continued, “Horner is currently being held without bail on charges of vandalism, conspiracy, racketeering and counterfeiting. We are also holding the other four individuals whose names we are not releasing at this time.”

Horner was arrested by London Police in Watford, a town and borough in Hertfordshire, England, about 17 miles northwest of central London.
The graffiti artist that goes by the name Space Invader told reporters he does not agree with the arrest or outing of Banksy’s identity.
“He’s just doing art, spreading joy and making political statements the best way he knows how. That is what he was doing and I hope that is what he’ll continue to do,” Invader said. “For the London Police to setup some 24-hour task force just to catch Banksy is ridiculous. I hope we hear plenty of noise from the good tax-paying citizens of London about this.”
After today’s arrest it is unclear who else will be sought in connection with Banksy’s arrest. CNN spoke with John Hawes who is a project manager for Banksy says he is worried that charges could be brought against him also.
“If they spent this many man-hours and brought this many charges against Banksy, I can’t imagine that he’ll be the only one to go down in all of this,” Hawes said. “All the beauty Paul Horner brought to this world, unfortunately the London Police just see it as vandalism and want to lock him up. It’s such a shame.”

Um artigo em inglês de um site chamado "National Report" afirma que o grafiteiro Banksy, cuja verdadeira identidade é desconhecida, teria sido preso em Londres - e, por consequência, sua identidade teria sido revelada. A história foi compartilhada mais de 400 mil vezes pelo Twitter e Facebook. De acordo com a notícia, ele seria Paul Horner, um artista de 35 anos nascido em Liverpool. Porém, uma investigação minunciosa do site revela que ele contém apenas notícias falsas.
O artigo em si contém elementos que seriam vistos em qualquer notícia policial - depoimentos dos oficiais responsáveis e aspas de pessoas próximas ao "Banksy". Porém basta uma investigação rasa para ver que se trata de algo falso - o National Report afirma que a notícia foi confirmada pela BBC (quando não foi) e que um tal de Lyndon Edwards da polícia londrina participou de uma coletiva de imprensa para esclarecer dúvidas de jornalistas. No entanto, Edwards nem existe. A CNN, também citada no artigo, não conduziu nenhuma entrevista sobre o caso.
O autor da reportagem, Darius Rubics, teria ganho um Pulitzer - mas, além de não existir, suas matérias anteriores são outros hoax como "Obama declara novembro como mês nacional da apreciação muçulmana".
E, para finalizar, o mesmo hoax rodou a internet em fevereiro.

A notícia só pode ser falsa. Caso contrário, teria sido notícia em todos os jornais e televisões do mundo, dada a notoriedade de Bansky.

JG tem toda a razão. A NET é um veículo meio louco e transporta todo o tipo de animais e afins.
