I also believe we should re-think our approach to crime. I dislike graffiti and believe that it could be stopped overnight if when you caught the person, that since they like to paint, their sentence would be to repaint all the walls with graffiti on them till the next offender is caught. I don't think you would have any re-offenders. Vandalism should be dealt with the offender being required to either clean it up or replace it. Not the parents but the kid.. He might think twice next time.
