I hope they catch this scrubber. Tagging is not art it's defacement. I don't want to live in a dump, it seems a few people in barnsley do though, flytipping everywhere no pride in the appearance of their areas, not cleaning up afer their dogs. scrubbers the lot of em. No wonder a lot of people think Barnsley is a joke and a dump, from the outside looking in it is.

Granted it doesn't look very nice and some teenager is out there trying to make a name for himself by tagging whatever he can. It's old news, Who of us remembers "Fista"? he did all this nearly 30 years ago and ended up in prison for it. I'm not so much worried about the spraypaint of yet another wannabe. I'm more worried that paint on walls becomes more important than the drugs problem we have in the town. It's much more rife than grafitti ever was. It's probably the drugs that drive he/she to deface things. Deal with that problem first.

Hopefully the police will be adopting a "zero tolerance" approach, and making applications for a "shoot on sight" policy.....That'll show the inconsiderate, brain- dead little morons!
