Graffiti Tagging: Los Angeles Style

Student arrested in bus tagging – Los Angeles Times

A 15-year-old sophomore at the Santee Education Complex in South L.A. was arrested late Tuesday on suspicion of being the student who scrawled his nickname on the outside window of a city bus carrying Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Schools Supt. David L. Brewer, among others.Santee Principal Vince Carbino, who was also on the bus Monday, said he believed the youth had no idea that dignitaries were aboard — but looked stunned, hid his face and stopped his tagging when he saw a photographer on the bus taking his picture.

Check out the picture after clicking through. The kid is tagging the windows of a bus with people on it. People including the mayor. That’s bold.

Sadly, the mayor doesn’t think the kid needs to be hit hard for this crime. I bet the people who’ve removed hundreds, if not thousands, of tags by this one kid have a different opinion about that. A vandal is caught red-handed and you’re not going to make an example out of him?

  1. I love the idea of creative sentencing…something along the lines of making this kid paint a 1000 defaced/aging school buses back to school bus yellow.

    It might even teach him an employable skill!
