Capitol Hill parking fight escalates with war paint: Kenny Be's Sign Language

Like the dogs they are, taggers must spray to mark their territory. The line of signs pictured above shows that this Capitol Hill parking-space turf war has escalated, with war paint, into a complete pissing match. Look below to see who is coming out on top... The four signs pictured above line the curb near the corner of East 13th Avenue at Grant Street. The layers of tags appear to be claims to the parking strip by rival crews. Hopefully the numerous cross-outs and write-overs are secret code for the tag-banger pecking order associated with two-hour parking, and not for dibs on car break-ins or attacks on fake ass haterz.
