i am scratching my head as to why we need new laws to stop taggers when a solution is already available. a quick google search of tagging proof paint or graffiti proof paint brings up alot of results. there are already substances you can apply to walls that stop taggers from painting on them. why doesn't the government know about this?

Because it costs money that they need to spend on giving tax cuts to the lazy.

These products, by their nature, render the protected surface as never needing a repaint again. This means that said wall or fence can never be repainted. I suppose the surface could be sanded down - but if so a tagger could do this as easily as the owner. They are therefore a tagging-protection tool, not a solution to tagging.
