none of these dudes are up at all or most wanted. again, news = tricks you into thinking that there: a. is a problem to begin with... b. that the problem has been solved.

get off your couch. go outside. is graffiti a problem really? you will eat at graffiti burger, but when the REAL THING happens its a problem. graffiti = culture. bigger cities have more graffiti. hmmmmmmmmmm i wonder why????? oh maybe because people are trying to say something. people are going to write on everything and there is nothing you can do about it. this city is one of the LEAST progressive in this sense. isnt this an "art" city? shouldnt we have more legal walls? why does ian mc i dont have a life give us some legal walls instead of buffing the places where people paint frequently. theyre still going to get painted, and even if you catch some dude who didnt go to court, theres still a bussling community of graffiti artists that are getting stronger in numbers and in talent BY THE DAY. graffiti will always be around, just like arrogant hipsters and rich white a- holes in the short north. SUCK IT UP AND DEAL.

There are branches of enforcement- but how much does it cost to put them in jail? And then they lose their jobs? How does that help?How about listing the top murder suspects? Or child abusers? Or rapists? Or tracking down whoever broke in to 2 houses of hardworking people right behind me this month? I know only 1 of these guys, but I know he has worked steadily for a long time, he's a good kid and has outgrown doing this as a form of self-expression rebellion years ago. Yes, community service cleaning it up is good because it does affect communities, and it is hard to enforce that & teach the lesson that it is important to be accountable and repair damage done to others, But, Really - how much is it costing to do all this? Couldn't we just have them on Volunteer clean up duty for a few weekends with a supervisor and spend the taxes going after criminals who are really hurting people? And there are differences- other crimes like car damage/theft, breaking in to garages and homes, cost a lot financially and emotionally, people even lose their cars because they were stolen and they can't afford to get them out of impound on a surprisingly regular basis and have their whole lives turned upside down once transportation is gone, but we spend money to prosecute these guys? Give more $ back to victims and let these guys pay to clean up. Unless the other guys are gang-related and causing other problems, I don't really get it I guess. The 1 I know is not in a gang or done anything else, and has been a taxpayer for years now...

You know a spray can looks an awful lot like a gun in the dark. Someone might shoot you graffiti "artists" in the head, which would not be a shame.

It's paint get over it. Worry about things like robbery, assault, murder, rape, kidnapping, not paint. Oh and sorry but yeah some graffiti artists are TRUE artists, lets see you pick up a can and do make something worth looking at.

Graf is not art. It's a way to pass the time coming off a coke high in the middle of the night after stabbing someone, probably sexually imposing on some misguided teenage girl at a campus party where they also probably stole someone's laptop and broke their car window. These dudes are more dangerous to the places where they are known than they are to the places where they throw up their names. They are **** holes to the community who knows who they are and they may some day fall by the sword of the people they have wronged in the light. Graf is only the tip of the iceberg. People are ****.
