  1. that’s not gang graffiti, there’s nothing gang related about it. please show me one gang insignia, or reference to a gang. someone just tagged the fence and posts with their not so creative tagging name “jerk” all graffiti is not gang graffiti, idiot.

  2. Joe Smith — Did you even read the article? The article doesn’t say it was gang graffiti. “Gang graffiti” is in quotes. And there are also the following sentences: “Arlington Heights Police are investigating. It is unknown if the criminal damage to property and vandalism is actual gang activity or prank graffiti.” Are you trying to brag how much you know about gangs? Or just prove that YOU are the idiot. HOw do you know a gang didn’t do the graffiti, but decided not put their insignia with their tags? Get some glasses or learn how to read.
