After racist graffiti tags were spray painted on a building which sells products made by minority artists, the Boston Herald published an editorial calling for more aggressive defence against graffiti. Included in their recommendations to reduce graffiti were an increase in fines and harsher penalties for graffiti tagging. They recommend security cameras as there are documented cases where graffiti taggers were brought to justice after being filmed by security cameras.
According to a 2016 Department of Justice report, “There are huge public costs associated with graffiti: An estimated $12 billion a year is spent cleaning up graffiti in the United States. Graffiti contributes to lost revenue associated with reduced ridership on transit systems, reduced retail sales and declines in property value. In addition, graffiti generates the perception of blight and heightens fear of gang activity.”
