Re: “Seattle’s graffiti law reinstated by Court of Appeals” [Feb. 2, Local News]:
Thanks a lot for bringing this crucial problem to gentle. A lot of the town is in shock to see how graffiti has been allowed to desecrate our streets, highways, onramps, tunnels and personal property over the previous a number of years. It ought to by no means have been tolerated to this stage, and it’s fairly unlucky that many elements of Seattle now appear like outdated industrial rust-belt cities. What’s equally unlucky is that it’s now spreading to our brand-new, yet-to-be accomplished downtown waterfront. The brand new Corten metal planters have been tagged a number of occasions, as has the brand new aquarium.
It might appear that the town may ship a robust message by initially concentrating on among the main repeat offenders. One in all these vandals has tagged their identify dozens of occasions in and across the Mercer onramp and tunnels. Surprising how just some vandals may achieve this a lot harm to at least one metropolis.
