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.
