I apologize ahead of time… I don’t intend to make light of or poke fun at any criminal activity. But I just find this amusing for some reason…
I think part of it is my affinity toward high quality graphics and effective displays of information. The portrait of the tagger above just seems slightly comical. When I first saw it, I thought it was a joke. I do applaud the City of Santa Ana for going to efforts to educate parents about tagging, including a website chock full of info to help determine if your child is a tagger, like:
• Your child is in the age group statistically associated with tagging, ages 12-18
• Your child frequently wears baggy pants or carries a large backpack
• Your child has large quantities of magic markers in various colors
• Your child has or carries a black artist notebook
The site goes into more detail and does provide a good bit of information (both for parents and wannabe taggers), but it all just seems slightly bizarre to me. I truly wish The city of Santa Ana the best of luck fighting tagging, and hope that ambiguous character with bizarre hands in the diagram above does alright in the end.
