Hitherto uncovered crime - which is being ignored by police and authorities; A book on a completely new aspect of crime and punishment; As featured on BBC Radio, and in national and local newspapers; Colour photo section. Gunfire-Graffiti looks at the use of firearms to deface roadside structures and similar targets in public places. Based on investigations by the author and formal research, the book reveals what some people may think is a disturbing picture of gun use-one which passes largely unnoticed or is for some reason downplayed by the police, highways and other authorities. As the author shows, at the very least this kind of 'graffiti' is antisocial whilst it is hard to imagine circumstances in which it is not also criminal. Further, there are situations in which shooting in public can be highly dangerous. Focusing on the weapons used, from simple airguns to high velocity rifles and giving information from diverse parts of the UK, Matt Seiber paints a picture of tolerated lawlessness which some readers will find extraordinary. A former Royal Marine and keen shooting sportsman, the author writes with the passion of someone whose deep-held concern that something is amiss has met with indifference in various quarters. His approach also displays telling humour born of frustration. It is now for the reader to decide. 'Excellent, Seiber presents an interesting exploration of a much overlooked topic, exploring an avenue of gun crime that is presently lacking in research': Sarah Watson, Coventry University. 'This book is an eye-opener': Nick Ross, TV Presenter. 'Seiber illuminates an area which has received surprisingly limited attention': British Journal of Community Justice. Matt Seiber is a former Royal Marine and a keen shooting sportsman. His interest in the subject matter of this book has led to media appearances and national newspaper features. He set up the Gunfire Graffiti Project in 2008.

Product Description:

As featured on BBC Radio, and in national and local newspapers. In this remarkable book, Matt Seiber examines the phenomenon of hidden gun crime in the UK. Emphasising the perils of unchecked gun use in public places, he also demonstrates how the police, authorities and media have sought to minimise or ignore the issue. Gunfire-graffiti is the author's term for wanton gunfire damage to roadside structures - traffic signs, notices, warning signs and similar targets. His investigations reveal that such shootings are not juvenile pranks, but a regular activity thought to be mainly the work of determined individuals unlawfully using firearms, shotguns, handguns and rifles, including lethal, high-velocity weapons. Stressing the threat to public safety and the dangers involved, Matt Seiber sets out to enquire 'Where, Who, When and Why?' - and given the criminality involved in such events and the malevolent nature of covert gun use asks 'How is it that gunfire damage is being deliberately overlooked by the authorities?' The author's concerns are backed by academic research and the views of a leading criminal psychologist. Indeed, Gunfire-Graffiti raises fundamental questions concerning the extent to which unlawful acquisition and use of firearms exist in the UK, the assumption being that the greater part of roadside gunfire damage is unlikely to be the work of unlicensed or other irresponsible gun users.
