They should take the little twit and make him do 1 day in jail for every dollar it takes them to clean his tags off. These little twerps think it is funny destroying all this property by spraying them. I'm sure the parents were aware of his tags, maybe they should be held financially responsible. I'm also sure that they would be the biggest complainers if it happened to their property. No wonder, New York City & Long Island look like a sewer compared to other cities.
Throw the creeps in jail or maybe make them paint the jail with a brush and a bucket.

graffiti is soooooooo stupid. i agree with kate, it's not "art" it's nothing even remotely close to "art." Can I give an example?

I grew up in ronkonkoma. There was a deli at the end of my street that had a beautiful mural of the lady of the lake painted on its wall. that mural was artwork. SO what do the douchebag graffiti losers do? they come and "tag" the mural, again and again. That to me proves that graffiti losers do not even understand what art is. kind of like 90% of hip hop doesn't understand what "music" is.

Even funnier to me that this kid is probably a spoiled little east islip rich kid. it's so hard living on the mean streets of east islip. Maybe this graffiti is rebellion cause daddy bought him a toyota instead of a porsche.

Why is a 16 year old walking the streets at 2AM? Where are his parents? Make this kid clean up his own mess then send him to jail to clean toilets. There has got to be some punishment here.

"we live in sick and perverted society where the lowest common denominator calls all the shots! Unfortunately, they do call the shots"

Exactly. And we have to get them out of the White House as soon as possible.

Just the other day driving down Sunrise in East Islip there was graffiti everywhere!! It made me so sad!! And thought why do these people want to make the place they live look so ugly. I grew up in Islip and have always been proud of the way it looked compared to other towns. Sad. And the kid should have to go clean it himself!!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING, GIVE HIM COOKIES AND MILK AND BLAME IT ON THE GLOBAL WARMING. LET HIM PICK UP GARBAGE ALONG THE ROADWAYS FOR A YEAR WITH HIS NAME ON HIS BACK WEARING PINK PANTS AND SHIRT.

This young man should get a reduced entence for good behavior and put in a high profile lockup with a semi private room. What's good for the slut should be good for the slob.

The police are absolutely correct to crack down on quality of life issues. This boy is 16. He is old enough to know what he did is wrong. His parents should have to pay for full restitution. How dare he break into someone else's home? If the parents had to restore all damage, maybe they'd keep the kid in at night doing homework where he belongs.

Do tell ... how does a 16-year-old become well financed, well educated and politically powerful? It sounds like he's just the opposite. Your comments are ridiculous.

This is exactly the trouble. If residents don't clamp down on this nonsense, with the help of prosecutors, your town WILL be QUEENS in no time! Long Island is the last stronghold! Neighbors unite!
