Instead of trying to clean up the grafitti, picking up the gang members on vagrancy and loitering charges would help get rid of the problem.

Reading is a filthy dump! There is crime againts good citizens practically every night and the police and mayor of that city is so incompetent and money hungry that they spend precious time that should be spend trying to catch criminals, just giving parking tickets to good aviding citizens. The streets are dirty and gangs are the ones that control this city now. Every morning good citizens wake up to find the glass on their cars broken and their cars a mess inside. Please!!! Those are probably the crimes that were publicized. What about the one's that the community doesn't now about????

Guess it wasn't too smart to start calling these vandals "grafitti artists".

Kind of encourages the behavior.

Your right it does. Seems like we should just set into repairing the damage and not put them centerstage. Referring to them as Vandals is also a badge of honor for them. Fix the damage and watch the site closely,I think they will return to remark the territory.
