Great idea and a great start, but unfortunately, as fast as they take the graffiti down, it will go back up. The weak ones who do the graffiti obviously don't have any respect for property, so they will continue to do it.

Maybe these childish "gangs" need to pee in the area to mark their territory. Since that is what animals do, and these pathetic, weak childish "gangs" are nothing but animals...

Look Everyone,
It's easier to wage war against "Gang Graffiti" than the Gangs themselves, so give 'em a little credit, huh?

I'm not amused... I VOTE to Bring back the Bratz Patrols. Defacing property, vanlizing memorials all are disrespect of other people and thier property and right to commune by Intimidation by young punks... That'z real tough. Catch them & send them in to Iraq, girlz too. Wansterz, wanna-be thuggerz... preying on the weaker,,, that'z real tough.
When they do everything sissified they think iz bad & run to hide like the true cowardz they iz.

It would be nice if they did what they said they would do.
So far I havent seen anything happen (after reports were made) and theres certainly much more to worry about in south-side and wilson "1200 block" than "Downtown".
I havent noticed the so-called gang activity or drug dealing downtown near the circle yet.
The hot spots are already known as 1)south-side projects area and nearby, 2)Canal Park/Lehigh Manor area of Center street, 3)1200 block west ward area, 4)C.R. Fanny's. Obviously these places are famous for shootings and deaths. but someone thinks we should focous on the circle,Duh. Lets waste more taxpayers money and time whilst blowing smoke up their ass.
