Lock up spray paint, cut down on graffiti

OlympiaMarch 31, 2014 

I would like to address the graffiti problem in Olympia that seems to be growing. When I lived in California 20 years ago, all spray paint was locked up in stores. You had to be 18 years old to buy it. As an adult, it was frustrating, but I saw a definite decline in violators. Yesterday I saw a local ad which gave you a free can of spray paint if you bought two. That just doesn’t seem right.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
