Graffiti unnecessary on campus

Tagging is stupid, unnecessary, and more importantly illegal. The people that do it are ignorant and have no respect or consideration for other people’s private property.

Taggers should realize that they are not only destroying someone else’s property, but that they can face severe reprocussions since it is illegal.

Those who watch the tagging take place and do nothing are just as guilty. Like any type of crime being committed, if you see someone doing something illegal and you do nothing about it, then you are an accessory to a crime.

Tagging is a crime people. If it wasn’t, by now the White House would no longer be considered “white” anymore. It would be covered in graffiti.

Why must people feel the need to draw and write little sayings and gang names on the inside of a restroom stall anyway?

Are you trying to pre-occupy yourself while you do your “business?” If it takes as long for you to use the restroom as it does for you to tag an entire restroom stall then maybe it’s time to see a doctor.

Honestly, the restrooms are not an art studio. You want to draw and write cute little messages or show everyone what a tough guy you are, then tag on your own property.

The school does not pay thousands and thousands of dollars to renovate the restrooms and buildings on campus so that little punks on campus could try to look cool and vandalize it all over again.

The restrooms were a mess and covered in graffiti before the current semester.

The school wanted to fix that and renovate the restrooms so that the fall semester students wouldn’t feel like they entered the restrooms to an Ozzy Osbourne concert on Skid Row.

The restrooms became clean, fresh smelling, and graffiti-free. Several days into the new semester and there are markings found within the newly renovated restrooms.

Really? The things you drew and wrote were that important that you had to let everyone who entered the restroom know and see?

The worst part is that most people get away with the tagging. It’s surprising how these people have no shame.

It’s also terrible that the reason why some people get away with it is because the people who see what’s going on don’t speak up or inform the campus police.

Yes, we are all adults, yes it can be scary to speak up but doing the right the thing is much more important.

It sounds like a Disney cliché, but it’s the truth.

Why would you want to make your school look ugly? Why would you want your school to look like the ghetto instead of a learning environment?

I’m sure the taggers wouldn’t appreciate it if someone went into their home and used their restroom and left a bunch of graffiti all over the door and the walls. It’s just rude.

If you have something to share, just post on Facebook or Twitter like the rest of society instead of being a low-down criminal. At least writing on Facebook and Twitter is free and legal.
