School Crossing Graffiti Gets Attention
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Graffiti on a school crossing sign may have tried to send a message about violence and kids, but it caught the attention of a Jennings council woman. She thinks it’s no laughing matter.
Yolanda Fountain Henderson snapped pictures of a crossing sign on Skinker between Waterman and Pershing.
That’s just south of the Delmar Loop, where just weeks ago more than 100 kids took to the streets in a violent flash mob.
The image is gone now and Henderson says the defacing of a sign may have been a joke, but is troubling in light of violent crimes involving youth.
She emailed the pictures to the St. Louis Board of Alderman.
