New Graffiti invades our small village

More graffiti  just spotted in Studio City
More graffiti just spotted in Studio City
This is painted over (recently as in last two days?) and of course nobody see's these crooks. This is a CBS sponsored billboard proudly showing a U.S. Marine and here it is, ruined. Why? Because nobody seems to want to put together a group to combat this crap. I've fought this in the past when I was a sitting Juvenile court Bench Officer and I can tell you that it only spreads. Look at Sherman Oaks, its all over the place. This ones on the South east corner of Laurel and Moorpark. And farther down on Moorpark just west of Tujunga, some creep put their name on the yellow bring, across from the Cantina, (formerly the Starlight room)

Can you give us any idea what this plan involves?

There is a studio city residents association, there is also a neighborhood council, but seeing as how nobody has responded except yourself in a responsible manner, there seems nothing to do. A person however that is somewhat attached to the neighborhood i.e.: Studio City can be in contact with LAPD North Hollywood to be in touch with an officer assigned tagging duties. I recently found out that there is no such group due to budget constrains. So therefor I'll just post a photo now and then . when I was with the courts, I knew that the schools had lists of students belonging to tag names. Some were on probation and subject to search conditions. Also now, many of these so called artists such as BESL have twitter accounts. But since I got nothing in the way of LAPD or neighborhood council results, I say "what the hell"

Too bad Jack, I was hoping you had a solution. As a metalwork artist I wish you guys would stop calling taggers artists. They don't even consider themselves artists. They are more like a dog marking their territory. I also have to say that Allen should think before he types. He would not want people using ALLEN as a general term for racist any more then Chuy and Chaco would for tagging.

Well, the board with the marine has been cleaned up but another marine got destroyed on Ventura blvd and I'll post a picture tomorrow. I intend to discuss this with NH PD soon. It's disgusting, it's an insult to the armed services and an insult to us in studio city

Jack, thanks for your efforts, they are appreciated. Don't take it as an insult, they're just kids going through a faze. I just accept it as my duty to keep up the neighborhood. I phone it in or paint over it myself, the sooner the better. But if you can catch them I would love it.
