'Hoodie' statue provokes outrage (Link)

The artist said he hoped to provoke discussion on "the problem of youth".

But people have hit out at Angus Council for spending £1,500 on the two-foot sculpture, called "Nike".

Apparently, the artist was successful, given that there were objections about this glorifying "ned culture".

An image of this statue can be seen here.
