Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The following was filed with the Denver Police Department earlier this month:

“A group of idiots apparently wants some attention so they used wonderfully colorful markers or paint and ‘tagged’ my garage with their very skillful scripted language that apparently no human being can come close to reading what it is they are trying to say. The legible portion of this foreign language reads ‘Alpha’ followed by something that appears to the word ‘boii’. I don’t know if this some sort of indigenous language but apparently writing it on garage doors of people they don’t know is a sign of them marking their territory much like an untrained animal. I have contacted the Graffiti hotline to have the illegible and unintelligible script removed from my door. If you happen to catch a member of this vagabond painting tribe please let them know that I normaly (sic) would pay someone to paint my property in colors that I choose and would be willing to employ them for a small fee."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
