Graffiti Urging 'Revolution!' Sprayed at Chase Bank in Santa Ana

Perhaps no city in Orange County is more notorious for its graffiti problem than SanTana. It made national headlines a couple of weeks ago when someone tagged two separate death threats against California Governor Jerry Brown on the same day. But most of its tags are of the ugly, pedestrian gang-turf/tagging-crew variety, with nothing in terms of urging political uprisings like the best graffiti has exhibited since the Romans.

Until this past Sunday. More after the jump!

This was sent to the Weekly yesterday by a source who wasn't the tagger--mainly because the source is a friend who's actually a supporter of Santa Ana Mayor Don Papi Pulido (oh, the drunken arguments we get into weekly--but that's a story for another time). The time stamp on the photo was yesterday morning, and my amigo said the city maintenance people were already painting over it.

Who could the mystery tagger be? Couldn't be cholos because they're too dumb to formulate any revolutionary plan, and the many Aztlanistas in town would've used español for their statement. Fascinating . . .

Ok first of all, this person shouldn't be criticizing spelling. The writer has a ton of mistakes as well. Second, it seems to biased against the Hispanic population.. I believed that journalism had to be unbiased..This just ruined the ethos of the writer. The writer could have saved himself at least that.. tis a shame..

It couldn't have been one of my friends either because the Paulistas write part of the word backwards. Dyslexia prevents me from being able to see which letters are backwards. That's why they don't let me make signs, especially not on bank buildings in Santa Ana.

I think it looks just fine you got to remember the person doing the spraying was in a hurry god forbid they get arrested the charge would be making a terrorist statement and they would spend the rest of there day's in supermax lockup.

That R looks like it has a 2 in there. The exclaimation point is a bit tacky, the word would be better emphasized with a thick underline. And neater writing.

Oh and this article is terrible.

Even more important than who is why in this instance.

This article actually made me chuckle. Yeah seriously I also wonder who wrote the tag line. Maybe not all taggers are knuckle heads? Who knows!

The fact that it's spelled correctly narrows down the suspect pool a lot.

I know tons of people who have researched a lot into how the federal reserve was established. They know that those big bankers are evil, and only play games with our lives to put even more money/resources in their pockets.

All that has to be done is for the taggers to meet and talk to people who will educate them on those type of theories. I am sure since the tagger is "DOWN", he will take it into his own hands at the point to make the "STATEMENT".

The only thing worse than a terrible article? The no-life loser that had nothing better to do than leave a comment on it.

Hey "Gustavo Arellano", it's funny because you called me a "no-life loser" for leaving a comment on your article... and you did that by commenting on a comment. I guess so-called writers don't have thick skin, eh? Maybe you should head back to school and take some writing and logic courses.

Wow, your insults are even worse than your writing ability. Are you good at anything at all?

Ah, that's the beauty of having a blog. Although it's my job to respond, some deserve more than others—so consider your pitiful life blessed for once!

@ Pikachu: I didn't post a question. Nice reading comprehension.

@ Guslol: If it's your job to respond to all comments, why did you only comment on the 2 comments that were critical of your "writing"? See, here's where that logic comes in handy again.
