Guess who spend an ass ton of money getting her building painted 2 weeks ago, and guess who showed up to work today to find the new white walls adorned with graffiti. Me!
And guess what, there is not a damn thing I can do about it.

Sometimes I think I should open a business in Rochester Hills. They have dogs there, right?

I'm really sorry to hear this, Blondy. Maybe some of the Graffiti encouraging lovers on here would like to come over and help you to paint over it.

Besides, you can't move to RH, because then I won't have you in my neighborhood when I return.... and that would be sad.

Something I always wondered about... In Guadalajara, Graffiti is everywhere. and I mean EVERYwhere. But in the nicer parts of town, the building owners dedicate a section of the wall to graffiti. Amazingly, the graffiti stays in this zone... I always wondered if this was something that could work in Detroit inner city.

The best thing to do is use a color that covers in one swipe with a roller. If you cover up the graffiti as soon as it appears, the offending little punks may decide it's not worth the effort, the time, the cost of the spray paint, and the risk of getting caught to do it.

The best thing to do is remove it as soon as possible, that will discourage more from appearing. Cities need to get tougher on this issue...Windsor is currently looking at a bylaw that would prevent minors from buying spraypaint.

If they wrote their name or the name of their gang on your wall, you should write "sucks" or "sucks big time" right below it, like Rudy Guliani's trained team of police artists in that one SNL skit.

Was the wall they tagged really visible, or facing the side/alley?

If Detroit politicians, judges, cops, etc. would get really tough on the graffiti criminals, the city would be a better place. They are the same jerks who are the perpetrators of other crimes from petty theft to murder. Lock 'em up for a month when caught and if they run ... shoot 'em.

But Blondie, DO NOT write "sucks" under their tag, many of them will retaliate in a worse manner than graffiti.

Been there, done that.

Here's how some progressive US cities are doing it:

All spraypaint is locked up. At Home Depot, the paint guy can "buzz" the gates on the spraypaint to let you in, it isn't a hassle.

Then, the cities have a "graffiti response team" that one can call anytime, funded thru donations from Home Depot (provides paint & spray equipment) and car dealers (provides vehicles) along with volunteers. Calling the # often means that the grafitti is gone before the next sunrise which means when Junior comes back to show his friends, things are already navajo white. It has virtually halted graffiti in those cities.

It has been several years since I was there, but the worst graffiti problem I've ever seen anywhere is in Zurich, Switzerland - outta control. Perhaps someone who's been there recently can comment.

Forget the laws, Detroit and other cities have worse problems that they're ignoring & need to work on. A citizen's group works and if responsive enough will halt the problem.

Super d is off in the fact that he doesn't know what dogs have to do with it. And who gives a shit were the tagger lives. Big deal. It happened on Blondy's building and that is a problem for the area she is in. It is on Two major walls by the way. Her attitiude is just fine. She has a right to be pissed off.

Pacy and River Rat - Did you ever catch part of Paint Cans and Politics - Almost all of the taggers interviewed were from the suburbs.

Don't be so naive to believe that most or all taggers are from Detroit.

They are one of the reason why I love the neighborhood my business is in. They are one of the reasons I would never move to R'Hills!!!

Cafe & Pacypacy get it. Forget where they're from. Make sure they don't have something to come back with their friends and look at the next day

Blondy, for now hit it with a can of spray paint, worry later about making it look right. Just get rid of "the showpiece" ASAP.

Blondy,

There once was talk, not long ago, to lay down the law on these taggers. That period was short lived and fell to the wayside. It has been decided by the powers that be that it is more important to go after people who talk on cell phones instead of enforcing basic traffic laws or destruction to personal property.

Put up a fence around your building, right up against the walls almost (like 3 or 4 feet) and let the dogs wander in and out of the building. Nobody will touch your building.

The discussion on cell phones took damn near no time. Enough with the fucking idiocy that they spent all of their time on it.

There are laws against garfitti on the books. The issue is not with the CC but with DPD's inability to catch taggers or sadly not caring enough to use their time to stop taggers and the priority that the Prosecutors go after taggers.

Duggan made it a priority and was willing to enforce and fine the shit out of offenders. The DPD and prosecutors need to enforce this. How is it a CC issue.

I am by no means a defender of CC but people tend to think if the news makes something as a big issue that CC spent a ton of time on it. Not always the case but listening and believing the media around here is not the smartest thing.

Contact Kym Worthy to inquire as to why graffitti is not a priority in her office. They won't catch all or the majority but make it punishable by fines and 2000 hours of community service painting over grafitti. Make the risk so sever that it may make some of these little fucks think twice.

Jt1, do you sincerely believe if a Detroit Police Officer observes a graffiti 'artist' in the act, he/she is going to yawn and ignore it?

And do you really belive a tagger is going to do his work when a car's headlights are anywhere within view?

Nope. But once the lights pass they are back at it.

I repsect many officers in DPD but I also know some that do not hide the fact that they do the bare minimum to get a pay check. As I was once told "There is law then there is Detroit law"

He went on to say that unless there is a call or a violent crime he will not waste his time to get involved.

Sad but true. Of course he lives in Clinton Tonwship and has a sick level of contempt for the city.

A person can get away with almost anything in Detroit.

1. Drive w/o a license
2. Illegally dump garbage
3. Break-in to a house
4. Break-in to a car
5. Cause a car accident and take off
6. Hit a light pole and take off
7. Shoot people in the middle of hundreds of thousands (Hart Plaza) of people and get away
8. Burn a house down
9. Throw garbage out your car window while driving
10. Graffiti any building anywhere and get away with it.

And, believe me this list goes on and on and on ...

When I was in high school, a good friend of mine did graffiti art in Detroit. He did some really cool stuff. I'm sure he still has pictures of it. It would be cool to blow up and frame some of those photos. Oh yeah, and we went to Ferndale High.

So was it a cool big ass mural or just a tag? You should post some pictures if it's well done. :-)

Blondy, paint over the graffiti ASAP. They may scrawl all over the wall again, but just be persistent. As one forumer stated, it won't be worth the time and money for the tagger to buy more spraypaint. I repainted the loading door 6 times within a 3 week period behind where I worked before the tagging finally stopped. It's been 2 years now, and has not been vandalized.

If there's one thing most graffiti kids respect, it's better graffiti. Take for example the graffiti-style mural that covers the 2nd street laundromat, the busines is closed but the art is still preserved.

If you hired out the wall, or even offered it up as a 'legal' wall, you'd probably get some talented kids to put up a large-scale production for not much else than the cost of spraycans.

For the mst part, kids involved in the graffiti subculture respect very good pieces. Of course, that doesnt mean some crackhead or idiot wont come by & scribble on it, but the graff kids are just trying to get their name up there. What better way then to be allowed to paint a larger-than-life mural, liek the one that exists by the train station at 16th and vernor?

just a suggestion, now I'll anxiously await 7 replys teling me what a bad idea that is, but if you paint it white I promise you you will have the problem again sooner rather than later.

andylinn, what is your experience? nevermind, let me answer that...none. i know about turdl, hughes, skrew, esau, and others...their real names, where they are from, where they live now, where they work...and you are absolutely incorrect.

i'll give you a hint...many live in the wayne state area...and hang out at a particular place on the east side of woodward, north of downtown.

Well Well__'y-t' try'n to dismiss me, blaze me, like the young brothas' say.

I could go there, naaaw! cause you know we(Blacks) are the inventors of signify'n....right?

but I'll save that brilliant talent fo' some other day!

dig what they be say'n bout me...that's right! 'they be'......

that's an ebonized articulation predicated upon the intricate association of Black grammer in which Black people survived upon. dig it!

Nevertheless check what they be say'n bout me....

Jelk stated

quote:

"I realize Super_d probably couldn't spell non-sequitur, but perhaps you should look up the words meaning"




eeer! do you actually know??...cause yo' statement ain't got no relevance, and is actually incongruous to what my statement is about!__ and I didn't even have to look it up! can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y?__go figure!


quote:

"Crackerass" Jelk. Super d is a "crackerass"





quote:

"actually he's both a crackerass and a crackass"





quote:

"Stupid_D what the hell are you talkin bout?"




'y-t' even called me stupid_d, talk'n bout disrespect!

It amazes me about some 'basic white people' is that they rile up__ and it is somewhat interesting when we (Blacks) correctly perceive that there is the inability of some 'basic white people' to acknowledge our intelligents, our fundemental authenticity__now, I know some of ya'll gonna say what I'm spitt'n is fraudulent, or distorted__ that's your hubris, your unabashed temerity, to somehow have the ability to pass judgement on me as a human being__like you are GOD! pleeeeeeaze! get hold of yo'self!

But I can almost dig-it, when 'basic white people' have no other recourse from which to retain redress or offer a sensable counter, they naturally recidivate unconsciously or perhaps consciously into their inherited transmitted idiosyncrasies of white approval.__I guess ultimately, there is a problem with problem perception...this is why I will continue to reject the litmus test of conscious recognition of 'white is right'.

but I ain't tripp'n, it is what it is!

Thank you, ya'll may return to the topic at hand now:-)

Black-atcha!

I always thought super-d was just a kid playing a joke on everyone with this "Saturday Night Live" personna. That is how I think of his posts. I have never taken them seriously nor given them any merit. They do make me laugh, but they are getting a bit tired.

Blondy, You and I have discussed it before...Orange is the way to go. Do your whole building in orange. If they tag it again, one coat should cover it.

There are what, 10 cops left in Detroit? With all the cut backs I would be surprised if anyone gets a ticket for speeding. I think y'all are gonna have to do some neighborhood watch shit if you want to keep an area clean of Grafitti.

Be careful about painting it orange, people might think it's supposed to be demolished.

There is some merit to the idea of doing a big graffiti mural (solves a signage problem too) but I don't think that will go a long way toward promoting the idea that this particular stretch of Cass has evolved out of junkie-whore territory.

Super_d, we all know you are a white boy from some far out burb trying to keep it "real". Hey, I bet "big Tone" is your fat friend from grade 9 who you used to listen to Winger with.

Keep it real homey...I'm sure the worst schitt you got stirred up in is when you lit a bag of shit on fire on your neighbours porch. Or was it the cat up in Old Mrs. Johnson's tree that you tried to get?

btw: What's up with mixing the Brit-Jamaican slang with American street lingo while trying to sound like Farrakahn or Jesse Jackson? Go mimic Ali G some more you white bread poser.

I heard somebody speak of an "anti-graf" squad in Detroit before - Is there such thing ? There just cant be, cause the stuff goes where it pleases.

If somebody from DPD sat down and put their mind to it, it would be a short timespan to russle up ALL the writers. It would require some computer skills and lots of nightshifts is all.

All of the writers I know of live in the city. Most people I know who live in Detroit, especially on this forum, were certainly not born in Detroit. Trying to suss what that matters.

Skrew does not live around here, so yeah, don't include him in that list. He just visited for a short time, bombed the hell out of the city and jetted. Although I can add at least 5 more names to that "writers living in Detroit" list.

As far as being from the burbs, as in, growing up there and THEN moving to the city: why the fuck does it matter? Just because my parents thought it best that I should be birthed and raised in the burbs, does that mean I should be faulted after I move back into the city limits? It doesn't matter where you're from, it's where you're at.

I also agree with the person who brought up the 2nd St Laundromat. Honestly, it's a good idea and he's right. But if you got toys or gang-bangers scribbling on your walls, I feel sorry for you as they don't typically respect good graffiti and will just mess it up again.

Ever think about putting up a camera system, at least a faux one?

as i recall, he was from the west coast...san jose, i'm thinking. he did jail time out there for vandalism, then bolted. taught a lot of taggers the art of graffiti in the "d."

anyway...i guess people are complaining about the prominent stuff they see downtown, but what about the gang stuff everywhere else, on houses and businesses throughout the city? that stuff is not done by burbies, former or present - and there's a hell of a lot of it. and seeing "folks up" and various other symbols in blue paint adorning your place of business in the morning is not as comforting hughes' pillowy font.

Sometimes they don't distinguish between the two at all, Thecarl, and I'm sure you know that. To some (maybe lots) Esau's roller bombs are the same thing as SUR 13. I agree with you though, you make some good points.

Saw a movie recently set in Barcelona (L'Auberge Espagnole) and was amazed at the grafiti on the walls - I've heard Paris and London are like that too, however I believe Melanie Griffith has the offending buildings painted over when she films there.
