RAIDS NET TAGGER CREW

I just read THIS ARTICLE that talks about another raid on graffiti writers-nothing really new there.

The article brings up the huge MTA riverbed “tag” (seen above), and goes on to talk about the charges etc…

The best/insane part that stood out to me was this line:
“The Army Corps of Engineers estimates that removing the “MTA” tag from the riverbed alone will cost $3.7 million”.

Now… I’ve seen this thing, I’ve been there and took the photo above. I understand the pros and cons on the argument of graffiti, but I really hope they find a better use for that 3.7 Million. That’s a lot of money that can probably be appropriated better. We’ll see.
