LOS ANGELES (AP) - One man got stabbed. Another got shot in the chest. A 6-year-old boy was temporarily blinded when he was spray-painted in the face.

And they were the lucky ones among those who have had run-ins with graffiti "crews," or gangs.

Graffiti vandals turn violent in LA

This has been happening all over Southern California for years. Gang members marking their territories like wild animals. These people are extremely ignorant and violent. You never want to confront these morons when they are spraying their graffiti.

FINALLY A PAC (Political Action Committee) that is fighting AGAINST illegal immigration!

Its gang members who tag not gangs of taggers. They are gang bangers first who happen to be taggers NOT the other way around.

Sometimes I think they should just send out notices to all the law abiding citizens in those neighborhoods and then perform napalm raids. That goes for the 1%'er neighborhoods too.

They just all need to be rounded up and publicly flogged. That would be good entertainment and teach them a lesson.

Cement whipping post in the public square, nylon rope and a cat-o-nine infused with glass shards.

Excellent.
You're already assuming that every person is illegal.
And you're certain that all of your ancestors were absolutely legal?
Might want to be sure before you accuse.

It doesn't have to be dangerous. I've been in the "less desirable" areas of L.A. a lot. Just be aware, that's all, and don't do anything stupid.
