Graffiti in Seattle a Growing Problem

SEATTLE - It's not the image that the city wants to leave with tourists. But sadly, more and more, their first and last impression of Seattle is an eyesore - graffiti scrawled and sprayed on buildings, bridges, tunnels, signs .... virtually any flat surface. Statistics show the city has spent literally millions of dollars removing graffiti over the years. A city poll revealed that nearly half of Seattleites think graffiti is a problem. There's a law on the books requiring private property owners to remove it. The city has encouraged graffiti artists to contribute to murals, hoping that would stop the problem. And many people compare those murals to works of art. But that hasn't stopped other taggers from attacking buildings, tunnels and bridges all over the city. Internet research appears to confirm that the graffiti is not so much the work of street gangs, marking their territory. But rather it is created by specialized tagging gangs making Seattle their canvas in a competition.
