    "Broken Window Theory". If the neighborhood will allow such vandalism and graffiti to persist, they are inviting bigger violations such as public drunkenness, loitering, drug-dealing, and shootings to happen. Unfixed broken windows and other neighborhood eyesores give an impression that the neighborhood doesn't give a damn that's why thugs take over and mess up the whole place.
