They may tag, but they’re not taggers

10598-RonBeilke.jpgThe L.A. Times ran a story today on Pico Rivera Mayor Ron Beilke and the recent incidents involving his son and some employees at Beilke’s Wienerschnitzel.

Beilke makes some really interesting comments, including this one:

“The kids got the world against them right now,” Beilke said. “They’re trying to say they’re all in a tagging crew. There’s tagging crews and party crews, and nine times out of 10, you find out it’s a party crew. A few may tag, and all of a sudden, they’re all called taggers.”

First of all, should kids really be involved in any kind of “crews?” And second of all, the fact that a “few may tag” sounds concerning, especially in a place, where as the Times put it,  “has burnished a reputation as a city that goes hard after tagging.”
