I decided to keep track of how long it took for one of the murals City Year painted at Markham over spring break to be defaced. Although I’m about a week late posting a picture of the scene of the crime, it took about a week and a half.
But hey! Someone tried to spray paint over what someone else tagged. I’m not sure if this was an act of kindness to clean the mural up, or another gang wanted to over up the tag. I would hope the former.
Why can’t this be OUR hood – students, teachers, corps members, non-gang community members and gang members – together? If only…
Oh, it’s just another day at Markham Middle School.
