Dear Mr Compton,
In response to your recent letter, I am writing to inform you about the on going graffiti problem in my area. I am currentley living on Fountain Road where there are several vandals targetting this area, causing lots of trouble and distress. Consenquentley, many local residents avoid venturing outside after daylight hours.
Unfortunatley, this issue seems to have escalated in recent months. Recentley I have been feeling increasingly frustrated by the racous teenagers who hang out on the streets, surrounding mu house. I regulary feel intimidated and helpless in this situation. I have made several furious phone calls to the police and I have written numerous heart-felt complaint letters to the council. However I have been inimpressed by their lack-lustrue response!
In my opinion, I think that under 16’s should not be able to acsses spray pain cans. the law on buying spray paint should be tightened. Whenever I g0 to the park for a walk, the walls and benches look disgraceful because they are covered in swears and inappropriate words. The park is always full of vandals doing graffiti and vandalism on the park property. I am aware that not all graffiti is vandalism; I think that some graffiti is beautiful and mesmeric art. However illegal graffiti gives the visual impression of an uncaring and indifferent society which doesn’t care for their enviroment.
Futhermore. I think I should bring my opinions to the meetings which include people who have been affected by the increasing graffiti problem going on in this area. It is definatley worse in the evening as vandals can slip through the dark and do graffiti on on people’s prperty.
In conclusion, I belive that all graffiti should be stopped and people who are caught perpetating should be fined or put in jail. As you can see I hold very strong opinions concerning the issue and will be attending the meeting to argue my case.
