'Bout a month ago, Barking Dog Avi Adelman posted this video of "taggerettes" putting marker to a Shell station on Lower Greenville; a better version of said tape went to the police. Turns out, Avi notes, one of the taggers has been tagged by the DPD: WaWa, which I don't think is her real name? Can't speak to her still-on-the-loose partner's moniker: Phat Guey. And Avi has his sources: "Local kids tell BD she and WaWa have been targeting a number of businesses in the area." Oh, to be there as Avi raps with the local kids. --Robert Wilonsky
