Christchurch's tagging (distinct from graffiti) is out of control. We caught a 14 year old prolific tagger at 2.30am on friday morning. Police apprehended him but because "he's 14 we'll go talk to the parents". A push to the officer for a cleanup by the offender and parents was met with silence from police. There's no legal way to touch them. We need to hit these guys hard early (maybe civil recovery of damage incurred from the parents) ,as they move on to arson and violent crime. see Broken windows theory - NYC 1990's.

This is a great display of the art culture that lies beneath the Chch rubble, unfortunately there will always be kids out there rebelling by tagging the streets to get attention from their mates but these are clearly very talented men/artists restoring colour to the once colouful "Garden City". I would love to see more around the city! Thanks Guys!

Hi Campbell Live, I think that there is a bigger story here...what exactly are the local authorities doing about graffiti in Sydenham, the incidence of which has escalated dramatically over the last few months. According to CCC there are 5 agencies involved, not all of which work in an effective and coordinated manner to get rid of this plague. I could show you many examples of graffiti including etching of windows that costs many thousands of dollars to repair, and the police and authority response is what exactly?
