  1. @the LA Time article about the Aves gang: I’ve definetly noticed an uptick in the smaller gangs graffiti crossing out the Aves and tagging in area that were once aves dominated. Hopefully LAPD can get all these punks and prevent any turf wars.

      I’ve noticed a lot more tagging the last two months as well. Thankfully, it seems that most of the neighbors are covering it up the illiterate gibberish as soon as it happens.

      I’m tired of the chaos caused by these feral gibbons.

  2. 1959 Dodge?

  3. I actually love that sign for “Back to Eden”.

  4. Saw a group of 4 girls aged 13-14 trying to tag walls in Mount Angelus. Scared em off, for now. Keep your eyes peeled.
