Graffiti Makes People Cry, Part II

The graffiti theme of the week continues today as C.W. Nevius picks up where he left off. Today: why prosecution of graffiti cases isn't working.

Problem No. 1: Jurists who don't give a damn, i.e. "This is a waste of time and money." Problem No. 2: It's too much trouble to show up to testify against taggers, apparently. (See related: problem No. 1).

And apparently, problem No. 3: we don't have a single "graffiti judge" to deal with all tagging-related busts, and thus no single entity has a grasp of the breadth of the problem facing the city. Graffiti judge then, anyone?
