Featured Letter

Don't encourage them

Re: the picture of a defaced McDonald's billboard, (Slice of Life) in the July 30 issue: Quite a while back when I lived in L.A., graffiti seemed to be at its apex. I remember a column on the front page of the Los Angeles Times bemoaning this fact. Accompanying this was a big picture of an overpass with tagging.

My thought at the time was, "Great. You just gave these guys exactly the attention they wanted." Simple animal behavior (do remember we're animals): When you reward ("Here's a treat," "Good dog," "How cool that is") unwanted behavior (barking inappropriately, defacing property), you are reinforcing that behavior. Meaning you are encouraging the continued behavior.
