McKinley Monument with graffiti
Photos by Dale Danley
Once again the McKinley Monument in Panhandle Park has been cleared of graffiti. There's no artistry to these tags, just tired scrawls of defacement. Dale Danley reported the vandalism to 311 two weeks ago. Today Dale happened upon the contractor hired by the San Francisco Arts Commission to clean the monument. The fellow said he had done this same work several times over the last six years. "Where I come from the penalty for doing this is three years hard time." If there's a next time perhaps someone will get a photo of the taggers and report them, three years hard time or not.
