Second Tagger, “Pheb”, Charged with defacing Venice Vietnam Memorial Wall
In May 2016 at the Memorial Wall in Venice, LA, some graffiti crew painted a bomb on the wall, but only one of them was caught and sentenced so the case was closed. However, conscious people from USA didn’t leave this accident as if it is, but decided to take matters into their own hands.
In order to make this case more popular, they shared a Facebook post regarding the page of Vietnam Vets of America. Due to the noise that everybody made about what happened – over 1 million shares – this news have reached around 15 million people and this obviously gave some result. A lot of worthy people expressed their opinions about it, and united around the idea of justice being served.

A comment from Linda Garcia:
Police officers got engaged into it once again thanks to us. They reopened the case, pursued the criminal and on 24th of October another villain got caught.
A young man, only 20-year-old, was charged with the cruel vandalism about the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Venice, Los Angeles. The arrest was made on October 24. Luis Daniel Median is known by the moniker “Pheb”
The detriment caused there should be paid around $400. This person is sentenced not only for his wall defilement, but also for other small wrongdoings similar to graffiti. “Pheb” obviously lost his prejudice as he caused damage to this holy memorial of the Fallen ones. This person said that he is sorry for what he did and that it’s been done without any bad intentions. His punishment made people talk a lot about this case.
“He defiled one of the most holy memorials in USA, but in the end he only got away with miserable $400. This means ‘death’ for American culture” – said veteran Chris Shrobury.
The other two criminals, who took part in the crime, are still missing. The more people engaged personally with this case, the more successful the process of their finding will be. The fact that our community encourages the police investigation proves that the united society is one of the most powerful weapons nowadays. You know how it works – it’s up to you to make it happen.
