Don't Glorify the Taggers

March 21, 1993

Publishing photos of so-called taggers and samples of their graffiti turns The Times into an accomplice in the stated goal of "doing whatever it takes to get their signatures seen by the outside world." Publishing a glossary of terms used by these groups only further legitimizes their belief systems and actions.

Nobody really needs to know what the initials stand for and printing articles about these individuals only fuels their addiction.

I'd like to see a new "Tagger Term."

To kill time: To completely cover every inch of the Times printing plant in the Valley with graffiti.

Maybe then we wouldn't see any more gratuitous articles glorifying tagging.
