Over the weekend 3 people from Elizabeth, two men and one woman, were arrested under the Rt.21 overpass on Chester Ave near Riverside Ave for graffitiing the walls. Good I say, it's a quality of life issue. Yet in the comments section of the article from RSL Media, it got a mixed reaction. Some were happy and some said that the police have better things to do besides this penny ante stuff. Not only is it vandalism but it brings property values down, affects outsiders in thinking that their is lawlessness and disorder and that the residents don't even care about how their city looks. You can be poor, but it doesn't mean that you have to live in squalor. That's why I encourage people to use the Newark Connect app to report issues like potholes to street lights out, and other stuff. I have used it and have gotten results. You can track your complaint, they tell you who it was assigned to, updates, and the end result. I have noticed a tremendous rise in graffiti all over. The answer is to remove it asap, once the taggers see it being removed all the time it will stop. The object of graffiti is to see your tag every where, when it starts to disappear fast they will find someplace else. It can be controlled. Anyway they all were arrested and car towed, and had six cans of spray paint on them.
