If you watch the news in San Diego, you may have heard how some local community residents have banded together to clean up all the graffiti in a San Diego neighborhood. Graffiti reduces property value and makes the neighborhood look trashy. These individuals are also taking pictures of all the graffiti in the neighborhood and will paint over everything they see.
The kicker here is that they are committed to keeping their eyes peeled for graffiti artists and informing the police any time there is new graffiti and passing off any and all information they get. With so much community support it is likely that any active vandals in the area will be arrested for defacing property.
This increased news coverage means the stakes will be higher for anyone arrested or being investigated for graffiti or any other type of vandalism. The consequences are already harsh, including a possibility of a lengthy driver license suspension and pricey fine, but the news coverage will likely mean that San Diego prosecutors, such as the City Attorney and District Attorney, will be less willing to negotiate, deal cases, or dismiss cases altogether.
