I was driving to work this morning and noticed a friend's business on Rising Sun Avenue was once again trashed by graffiti vandals for the second time within three months. This time, it looked like they were there a while at it wasn't just the typical scribble that takes two seconds. The dork hid behind a car as his did his uninspired "piece" that looks like everything else I've seen in over 30 years. My friend told me that his place wasn't tagged for about 7 years before the first incident. This is normally a safe, clean neighborhood and there is no place for this nonsense. Solvents were already applied to remove the tah and city agencies will be by to power-wash the remainder.
Major League Graffiti Vandalism:
I was driving to work this morning and encountered major league graffiti vandalism all over the neighborhood in red spray paint and black magic marker. Most of it was from the same idiots. It wasn't there when I left work last night at 9 PM, so it had to have occurred sometime between then and 7:30 this morning. I won't grant them the warped sense of fame they desire by mentioning their tags here, but here's a list of the locations vandalized by the knuckleheads:
NW Longshore and Rising Sun near 6800 Rising Sun Avenue - crossing sign and signal control box.
Stop sign - NE Longshore and Bingham.
6921 Rising Sun Avenue - garage door and air conditioning unit.
SW corner Brighton and Oxford Avenue - street sign post.
7000 Oxford Avenue - electrical meters.
NE Tabor and Oxford - No Trucks sign and gas metering box.
SE Tabor and Princeton - directional sign and reflector cluster.
701 Longshore Avenue - utility pole.
SE corner Oxford and Glenview - electrical box.
6529 Oxford Avenue - Oxford Auto Repair - truck.
6401 Oxford Avenue - Rite Aid - concrete light base.
6301 Oxford Avenue - Shop Rite - trailer.
Thanks for the info... sent to the graffiti team for removal
