Glad to see this douchebag got caught. He'll probably get off with some probation.

Good job by the police. Lock him up - people like that are a blight on society, causing so much damage to other people's property. It's time to start cracking down on these scumbags.

on felony count for 20 buildings vandalized? Why so easy on him? This is a very big problem in Chicago.

I'm so glad to hear the cops went after him and he's being charged with a felony. This is a big problem and it seems to be getting worse. Glad to see Chicago taking it on.

They should make this punk paint every wall he tagged. Maybe after all the labor he puts in he'll think next time he vandalizes.

I caught a kid tagging my building once. After I chased him down the street, and beat the crap out of him, I took his spray paint, held him down and spray painted his genitals. We haven't had much of a problem with graffiti since then. You may call me crazy. I call it swift justice.

Cravat,

Maybe this guy is Preston or vegan (I actually clicked on this article in hope of seeing that either of those two taggers got caught). I would love to see those *ssholes get thrown in the can or, as the Las Vegas mayor once proposed, get their tagging hand cut off.

LOL, I'm cracking up that the Trib censors took out my description of these losers - a combination of the word soapscum and handbag. Umm, didn't realize that was somehow a verboten swear word! Talk about heavy-handed. As for "yuppie condos" - hmm, they mentioned businesses as well. I'm sure the Korean laundromat folks on the corner near me don't think of themselves as yuppies.

Besides removing the paint he tagged on other folk's property. How about 3 hours of community service for each of his identified offenses in the area where he did his tagging.

beat the crap out of him? swift justice? read a little about the graffiti artist TIE ONE and tell me if this story doesn't sound similar...
a little perspective might be helpful.

Little shi***t should clean Lake Shore Drive with a toothbrush to get the message across to other morons who think private property is there own.
