Somebody out there knows their kid has some rattle cans and probably won’t do anything about it. Graffiti artists typically aren’t this stupid, callous, or disrespectful and often take pride in their “art.” This is some teenager without a curfew who probably won’t graduate and definitely didn’t get the discipline they needed. Hopefully this kid gets caught and made to clean this mess up themselves along with some rehabilitative public Samaritan work assignments.
