A clean sweep

February 02, 2009

Re "7 alleged L.A. taggers arrested," Jan. 29

At a time of very tight funding, it seems truly criminal to have to pay to clean up the work of taggers.

There is another solution that is very simple and will not cost much at all. Hopefully some judge will give these people some wire brushes and tell them to go to work. Their sentence would be served when the unsolicited painting is cleaned up.

A guard or two might have to be paid, but that, in the case of the Metro Transit Assassins, would be a lot cheaper than the almost $4-million cleanup cost cited by the Army Corps of Engineers. The taggers could take their breaks in their BMW.
