Empty Bardon building Tagged December 17 or 18
To put this in perspective I am friends with Ross, of the Station Street car wash who was change machine ripped last week. Next I caught a punk sneaking over the fence to my neighbors yard on Boswell, a house I am officially responsible for three months of the year when he is away.
One on one, no problem, punk kid. Long term problem as there is a crew.
I have lived in NYC and other big American cities and know how this goes.
What worries me is that I READ the message.
I caught and pulled the kid, naw he was not going to go one on one with me. Even if on a open street with witnesses.
But, next day there is hundreds of square feet of tags opposite my back door on the y Bardon property on Wallbridge Loyalist Road, deliberately in my line of sight.
After catching lurking these appeared, intervened with the someone on Harriet Street after pursuit, description follows:
male 17 to 19 age, 5'7" perhaps 150 lbs, sandy hair clean shaven
Due to the style of the Tag's and the fact that there is a sponsored graffiti program run by the John Howard Society right there on Wallbridge Loyalist It would be very cool if a uniform would stop by the JHS.
S.M.A.R.T. & The John Howard Society are proud to announce

Still their side of the creek, but pressing it, gangs message.
That tells me 100% that the kid I pulled was in a gang and they are back staking their territory. According to local kids* the tags belong to a group that have recently left the High School.
This is bad news as we are a group of elder senior retirees in the late 60's to mid 80's who's ability to protect ourselves is greatly diminished particular if they go swarm.
