Regarding West Valley City's efforts to remove graffiti (March 12): I would much prefer to see a photo of apprehended gangsters in orange jumpsuits doing the cleanup. Is it impossible to catch and convict the perpetrators? Is it cruel and unusual punishment to make them clean up their own mess? Can we bring Sheriff Joe Arpaio out of retirement? I can envision him chaining the perps to the wall, giving them a toothbrush and leaving them there until the wall is clean, and maybe give them just enough paint to tag each other's orange jumpsuits with "I'm the idiot who did this."
