I feel that who ever is doing it should be responsible. If they get caught for this.they should pay for the signs and paint the graffiti that someone else did too. Have the parents be responsible to stop their child from doing this by helping out.

Two things you have to do here.

1.Make the fines really high(>$1500), and prison time, and work cleaning the stuff up as part of the sentencing. Double the time and the fine on each arrest.

2.-Deport the illegal Mexicans who started this crap.

3.-Never eat tacos again.

not all graffiti is gang related. those little markings those taggers do are called tags. theres is a difference between graffiti and taggings

The notion that tagging is somehow art is absurd. Graffiti is not tagging and the blight that is plauging honolulu right now is not graffiti but tagging. The childish srawl of someone's name or nickname in black letters does not come close to the true art of graffiti witnessed in New York in the 1970s or the berlin wall. To equate the two is not just wrong, but a moral insult to the true graffiti artists
Agreed!
I also want to point out that HPD wants to focus on Graffiti instead of REAL CRIME. HPD is the most Failed Police department in the United states!!! Perfect example: The Lady who was shot yesterday by her ex boyfriend... and about a month ago when a Man Stabbed a Lady to death in Ewa and again the Samoan guy who Killed his wife.. the List goes On. All the Men had restraining orders all had a LONG list of crime that the Police were aware of but did NOTHING!!!!
I am so Sick of HPD. Instead they want to focus on Taggers!!!

Parents need to BE PARENTS and Dicipline there children.
HPD needs to be POLICE officers and DO SOMETHING!!!

You have Strong words! Do you have any Facts?
I would love to debate you.

First of all...
Who Is illegal? Mexicans are NATIVE Americans...
Whites are never called illegal but the ARE NOT Native Americans...Nor are Asians and Blacks

And if your speaking of Oahu in General...
Its the Philipino and Asian Kids that are doing the Graffiti...

We Cut our School Days Short we dont Hire Top Knotch Teachers and more then half of you Clowns dont Spank your Kids.... Spank our Kids!!!

Mexico lost the war, after they stole it from the "NA-indians" that were there. The Spanish conquered them, and then bailed. They gave up their hold on the states, by treaty. Rip their dictator "presidente" of the time all you want. It's like New York. Dudes in control at the time sold it for $26. Then, it was a gigantic frozen swampland. Nobody wanted it, so it got sold, for some blankets and beads. hard to get at the time. THERE WAS NO MONEY THEN. People traded what they had to trade. Same thing in Alaska...Ruskies wanted to unload it for $7.2million. Seward saw that as a bargain. The morons like yourself of that time, laughed at him all day long...for years. the Russians announced bravely that they sold a wasteland to the dumb Americans. Then they discovered gold, and a bunch of other minerals, and the timber, oil, etc. Now they want it back. Native Americans want NY back. Mexico says CA, AZ, NM, etc. was stolen....ha!, they should talk...their country is one of the biggest basket cases in the world right now. All they do is steal and sell drugs and prey on their own people. Just check the news once a year, so you will know something about it. It is in the news everyday. Troops are being sent on both sides to stop the kidnappings, drugs, killings, and be-headings. Hawaii was KK's experiment. First he conquered his own people, then tried to give it away to various nations, none of whom wanted it, including Russia, his first choice. When the French started to move in, we took it and made it what it is today, for better or worse. So stop cryin' over the way the world changes over time. It is what it is...and you are part of it all. Your taggers there...I think you are right though. No problems who it is...it just needs to be dealt with asap.

Guru,
You seem to think your words are facts... Truth is Nothing was sold it was taken. The borders were set out of Greed by the white people. Native americans were honest people that welcomed the new foreigners. Europeans brought Hate and Greed along with Sickness... while you get brain washed by your media the truth is right in front of your eyes. Crying! You want to say what you feel because you were probably taught how to hate and Steel from your parents.
Hawaiian land was never Sold either.. Hawaiian land was Taken... there is signed documentation from the Royal Family stating they do not agree to the Spanish/ White Scam for the lands..

Nice try Guru... like i said come with Facts!!
News does not exploit White Criminals. Nor does it point out the total number of immagrants for each Race... Facts AAre they Need to Deport Asians and Whites

Alice, seeing how the people who judge you are probably kids... maybe we should take another yet more aggressive approach. Make the Kids AND the Parents of those kids do it. The parents need to be held accountable as well
