Color War

October 2008
Weekly Reader News - Senior;10/3/2008, Vol. 87 Issue 5, p3
The article presents the views of two children, Caitlin Bowen of Virginia and Charlotte Laurence of California, on an ordinance passed in Los Angeles, California, which holds parents responsible for their children's graffiti. Under the ordinance, parents of children who will be caught illegally spray painting a property will be fined up to $1,000. Bowen supports the ordnance because graffiti lowers property values. Laurence points out that despite parental supervision, kids tend to act on other influences.
