The willful destruction or defacing of property is vandalism - it's also a crime. People feel angry, hurt, and sometimes frightened when something of theirs - a mailbox, a bike, a car door - is destroyed for no reason. It's expensive to repair and makes our community unattractive and unsafe. It ends up costing us all in aggravation and in the cost to repair the damage.Graffiti appears in many forms, from obscene and violent language scrawled on a public bathroom door to elaborate murals on a brick wall. Unfortunately, if it's not on the artist's property or done with permission - it's vandalism, and it's also a crime.
