Went out to the storage lot today to start prepping the coach for it's move to the pad next to the garage, and this is what I found (click on the image for a better view):

RJ...What I say will not be popular!  I have said for a long time that the punks that do this crap should be put away...forever...not in jail...in a grave!
In Greensboro, NC the police have a cop that studies this and can figure out who did it.  You may want to see if your police department has such a man.
I am soory for your lost here.

While I think the death penalty might be a little harsh for this crime, I can relate to the sentiment:

When I was driving cross country, I carried lacquer thinner with me to take of graffiti.  I was home one time and checked on my truck Saturday night, Sunday drove by and it had 13 graffiti markings on it.  Stopped and took close to 3 hours to get them off, but did it.  If you get the paint before it has hardened, lacquer thinner works well and won't ruin the paint, most of the time. 
By the way-if you have Imron type polyurethane paint, DuPont recommends cleaning the paint with lacquer thinner.  Good Luck, TomC

That is so sad and so wrong!

When I lived in SoCal I saw the markings on everything. The box stores have the spray paint under lock and key, sure hasn't stopped them from acquiring it though.

I feel for you and hope you can get it removed without any damage.

Last year, a friend was driving his "just painted" pickup through a parking lot, and drove over a can of spray paint. It burst and put a big sun burst of orange paint on the side of his new white paint job. He had only had the pickup back from the body shop for 3 days! When he brought it back to the shop, they told him that spray cans do not have hardner in them, and that it can easily be removed. I am not sure if it was a thinner or what the solvent to use was, but i seem to remember it being a Dupont product that had 3 numbers for its name. Ask at a body shop, or store that sells auto paint, and maybe they can help you out. Good luck with it.

I agree with Jack also. I am tired of punks getting away with this stuff. Get rid of them & probably save someones life later on.

That is ROUGH!!! Those punks, if caught, will just get a a little fine, or something. Not what it should be Angry Angry Angry.

Hope you get it cleaned up.

God bless,

I saw downtown Juneau go from a quaint 20s type downtown to a disfigured disgusting 'tagged' eyesore.  I don't think they should be killed, however a baseball bat taken to the forearm and hand of the offending arseholes would help deter them.

However, I'd bet public Caning would go a LONG way to deterring the little fatherless curs.

1000 hours community service work cleaning graffiti off of things might get it through their heads why nobody else thinks it is so great.  Then follow it up with a required enlistment in the military with a double dose of boot camp under the toughest DI's.  When/if they made it through the course, they just might come out with a different view on things.

Years ago, a judge had the option of sentencing a person to jail or sending them off to the military, it sure straightened a lot of kids out, too bad they can't do that anymore.

Unfortunately, you have to catch them before you can do anything about it, not easy to do.  Did they break the windows too?  Hard to tell from the photo.  I would be so angry, I would explode.

Hello all. They have "Anti-thieft" cars, Why not an "Anti-Graffiti" Bus? You could work with the local PD and set up a sting. Cameras on the bus should do the trick. Park it in a place known for the crime and watch the Bast**ds line up. We all have the freedom of Choice, I think Military or Jail. That would be 4 years one or the other! M&C Grin
