A huge problem affecting our home town (Naugatuck)is Graffiti. Graffiti is an eyesore and can be offensive, often containing profanity and explicit images. Graffiti can also promote violence through images like gang signs. Not only is it bothering to see, but it is against the national policy. This "art" is a destruction of private and public property, and is against the law. We are sick and tired of not being able to walk around town without seeing explicit images or offensive language. Graffiti, however, is a large beast to tackle. In our opinion, the best way to approach this is by getting the community on our side. Community service is now a requirement for new students, and making clean-up a viable option to gain these hours would give us dozens of students eager to help.
