WOW. $340,000 in damage and LAPD considers their crime vandalism? In Wisconsin, we call that kind of damage CRIMINAL DAMAGE TO PROPERTY!

Please, please stop referring to these graffiti terrorist thugs as "taggers" and graffiti vandals. Giving these terrorist thugs cute titles allows them to think they're great Artistes. Under no circumstances are they artists. Under no circumstances is there crime graffiti vandalism. It's time to face reality: the crimes these terrorist thugs commit must accurately, and appropriately, be called CRIMINAL DAMAGE TO PROPERTY!

Just out of curiosity, if one drives a car through an LA public park, destroying the landscape and the playground equipment, does LAPD consider the driver’s crime vandalism or criminal damage to property?

no such crime in california titled criminal damage to property. Different titles, same elements. All states have different titles for their crimes and are not all the same.
