What the heck is that supposed to mean?! You really are the most pathetic troll among trolls in the state. Does your contract require you to post on every single little story - especially when you don't know what on earth you are talking about? Graffiti is everywhere on this island but it is getting worse all over as well and this guy should be strung up as an example and punished to the furthest possible extent of the law and publically shamed as well.

Yeah! My friend Mitch drives around Ewa Beach with paint in his truck so he can paint over the graffiti. Only to come back the following week and see it graffiti'd again. If you see kids doing it, call them on it. Everyone has a camera on their phone. Put them on blast! Damn.

Those who create graffiti have been let off much too easily. The penalty should include the cleanup of their mess and pay a stiff fine. That's just for starters foe defacing our beautiful place on earth.

Make him accountable for all the clean-up in his area. Should the culprits be minors, hold their parents accountable. If they're not citizens....DEPORT them back to their country. We don't need people who has no respect for their neighborhood.

You may have a clue there. There are some in our midst that want to trash the Nei and denigrate our culture to their 3rd world surroundings, as it brings them pleasure, like being at home. On the other side of the coin, they may be locals and lthe may live in a hovel and want everyone to share their misery.

The offenders who these things do it often for street cred and attention. What we need are laws that will hit these offenders where it hits them the most. They should be required to do community service in the form of painting over graffiti all over the state and be required to wear a sign that tells the community that they made a bad decision and are now paying for it. Of course, of course with the supervision of a corrections personnel. Other would-be graffiti offenders will see this and think twice before they start marking up walls and other property. We would save money in graffiti cleanups and discourage other would-be offenders.

Your suggestion makes too much sense. The lawmakers and judges won't go for it. They prefer to give them a stern scoldings, probation, and a hug since these people probably weren't held enough as children.

“Gra – filthy” is a terrible problem on this island – I am old enough to remember when no (or visible) graffiti polluted the landscape. I travel the H-3 six days a week and see it all the time – behavior imported from the mainland and across the dateline in my opinion. Sadly in this day of “look @ me” social media the defacing of public and private property will be very difficult to control.

Actually, it was imported from France. Think bank to the early conehead days, The Coneheads were the original grafitti polluters. Sorry, but the mainland got invaded by Coneheads from France and now we have it. There ya go, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!

How about a requirement of 20 hours of community service for every square foot of property affected or 1,000 hours, which ever is larger. Make them wear an orange uniform highlighted on the back with "Graffiti Bust" And a fine to fully cover all legal and remediation costs. Hit them where it hurts, in the wallet and by taking away their free time.
