Sigh. If there is a reason to taser this is it. What is the signifigance of the Red Rags?

Great, not even 0730 hrs and I'm already angry.
Have yet to figure the significance of the red cloth.

The red cloth is the mark of a group of urban climbers. It is tied at the top of the object climbed to signify that it has been "conquered."

Obviously whatever measures the park is taking are NOT work. The downside is the amount of ground that has to be covered by probably only a few people makes it near impossible to protect the resources there. If/when anyone is caught the hammer needs to come down hard on them to show others what's in store for them. They need to start posting signage at all of the parks exits and entrances outlining the punishment for committing vandalism. Even if it's just some clown climbing a monument. ~G

Of course,the red cloth could also be the sign of anarchist.Seeing as little punks like that have no respect for anything,the poor quality of the tagging,and the monument was tagged for the Regulars (anarchist would see that as a sign of the "military industrial blah-blah-blah),I say it's time to look in on the local bloqs and let them see how tough they are in the US' finest.

The red cloths have been a continual issue since about April/May 2008. They have appeared on several tall monuments including the 44th NY Monument, Pennsylvania Monument, Michigan Cavalry Brigade Monument, and the Longstreet Tower.
The graffiti is obviously a political statement of some sort.
Considering that the red cloths have been appearing since 2008 I don't believe that the cloths and the graffiti are related incidents.
