Reported today where POLICE in a town called Guadalupe near Monterrey Mexico caught and spray painted the heads...shoes and rears of 4 teen 14-16 yrs old taggers in order to teach them a lesson.

The police should get a raise.

There is a lot of taggers here in Baja where I live. Seems they are hurting for money for food but no problem getting paint. One person is covering up the graffeti in my sub division. Appears the person doing the spraying is getting tired of his CRAP being covered over and does not return as often as before...so it does work.

Heard of one cop here that hassles a teen who had been caught tagging so the cop gets on the kids case when ever he sees him.

HIGH FIVES to the cops in Guadalupe, Monterrey.

Here, In Las Vegas, you only need to call a hotline number to report some grafitti in your neighborhood, and they'll be out in a day or so to paint over it. It's very costly to the city (close to $3M a year) but it gets the job done. Only problem is the paint doesn't oftentimes match the color of the wall, so you see different patches of paint color on the walls all over the city.

Interestingly, when I travel, I look for the countries where there's an abundance of grafitti and the countries with so little. Mexico has an abundance of it. Why? Does it say something about their country? In Central America, I saw very little of it, at least where I traveled to, and I travel to a lot of off-the-beaten track type places. My biggest surprise in South America was Chile, where I least expected to see it. Chile rivaled Mexico for grafitti. Interesting! And not in Ecuador or Bolivia where I expected to see more of it.

A round of applause to those police officers!

Graffiti does not rule when the CRAP is done on your own home or on your mothers house by some other person.

Some feel that their CRAP done on some other persons property is POETRY while they don't like it done on their own MOTHERS house.

If the person thinks their CRAP is so PRETTY then do it all day long on your own property ...respect other peoples rights.

I have to admit there's some grafitti that's artisitic and a welcome sight to your eyes. Out of curiosity, on a recent trip to NYC, I rode the train through The Bronx and it was Winter, drizzly, grey, trees shorn of leaves, and what stood out on that trip was some of the brightly colored grafitti, mural-like, I saw there. I have to say it brightened up the trip and it almost changed my views on grafitti.

BUT, on my many, many trips to The Tijuana/Rosarito area I saw no artistry to the grafitti, only black scribbling, nothing more than an assault to your eyes.
