Easy fix for vandalism
I just read the article about blue spray paint being bought by two intoxicated youths, leading to a tagging spree. [“Vandals give Hendrix statue the blues,” NW Friday, Sept. 20.]
Seattle should make it a law that you must have ID to buy spray paint and it should be entered into the computer at the point of sale. In addition, it should be locked up in a metal cage.
People who are genuine in their purchase don’t mind showing their ID, just like with cold-medicine purchases. It is taggers who mind, and people who think anarchy against everyone is acceptable.
It’s time to take a stand and get Seattle to make a positive move to protect property owners and renters, as well as state and city property.
Too much money is spent, and it’s an easy fix.
