He was defacing training and placing graffiti on them with others - he now preaches to the young not to do this anti-social thing and gets no response from the other youths - he advised you can be convicted for 6 months jail if found guilty - he has learnt his lesson. I think he is a great young man who has the courage to tell a stranger this and find him to be stronger person then he was before. He told these youths do this for boredom and they they want to be recognised for the creative art and signature they provide. To me, there would be other ways of doing this. There is a group in Mount Druitt called Community 2770, I think they should do something about this.
Back in May NSW Transport advised us of what they do and what we should do to prevent these youths doing if catching them doing this on trains. Also the major affect once you as an individual see something and get the right authorities notified, is ultimately reducing the ongoing cost of cleaning up these graffiti trains, which so stands at $55Million.
