Not only are rival gang members angry about the graffiti... family men/women are getting upset with it to. Mission accomplished. They've annoyed you all. I just look beyond it. Ya'll are doing exactly what these so called artists want. Leave it alone.

I've lived on Mount Hope and would like to know where exactly on Mount hope do you see grafitti? Over by the projects near the Ford Stree Bridge? I highly doubt that with the residence there, it was suburban/college kids that did that grafitti.

So in essence, it would be just great with you if people just decided to go and "tag" your house or car or something of that nature, right?

the problem is not WHO, the problem is HOW to stop it , we can argue who forever .

I agree even though I have contributed to the contrary. I wasn't specifically pointing out who but then I'm sure that it all isn't done by just one singular click either. So, with that in mind, how do we get rid of the problem? I know that in certain places that I've lived, they've actually put an age on when you're allowed to buy can of spray paint but that may have curbed the situation but not eliminate it.

paint restrictions is not the answer,(hobbist) we can do this , when caught (pic) in the paper , embarrass the family and charge the family for the clean up / have the abuser help in the clean.

maybe then just maybe the parents will take control again

I totally agree with you in the fact that I am a hobbyist and I also believe that there should be a good amount of public humiliation in forcing the "artist" to clean up his "work". With the act of restitution in place as well.
