Heard On The Street: Graffiti Taggers Hit Downtown Kirkland

On Wednesday morning we walked down Park Lane and noted that the entire block had been tagged by spray paint between Main St. and 3rd. Then a reader sent in the below image (altered as not to promote the "artist") and it appears to be by the same person. If you see our beautiful city has been defaced, please report it to the city's Anti-Graffiti Hotline at (425) 587-3824. They act swiftly to clean up the mess created by our least civically-minded citizens. 

One wonders what the penalty might be for such offenses. Likely a slap on the wrist. Apparently, the cost of getting caught doing the crime is not sufficiently high as to deter such acts.
