With those taxes that they charge us the city can use it to build parks, libraries and shopping centers. My first reason is most people do not like places that are full of graffiti and full of litter. We can also use it to make jobs in the places that can be opened and so Californians are not unemployed and those that can work will work with these new job opportunities. My last point is a survey that might surprise you a bit. A 2006 survey showed that in the 88 cities of the L.A County showed that graffiti cleaning in that year cost this county 28 million dollars and this county only has 10 million residents. Now pointing another direction let’s talk about the bad things about cleaning up graffiti.
Some of you think that graffiti cleaning is good well it also has a dark side. If we clean it up the gangs are more tempted to do graffiti. Also if we do not clean it they can get bored of doing it and may go to another neighborhood and maybe even another city. Also we can just ignore it and not care or we can care a lot. Also like I said in the previous paragraphs the money used to clean graffiti can be used for public reasons. Now that we have disputed both sides of this story let us talk about the art of graffiti.
Graffiti is an art and just because some of it looks ugly and horrendous doesn’t mean that it cannot be done legally. Graffiti is an art and it should not be a killed art. This art can be done in an art studio and done legally. Also if been trained these artists can create beautiful street art. Now I have said everything that I had to say and my last chance to convince you is next.
What we should do stop illegally done but not stop this art form and stop these gangs. But what the gangs don’t know is how hard it is to clean the graffiti so what we should do is stop illegal graffiti and keep this city clean “OUR CITY”.
