THE reason the mural was gone over ("Mural daubed with gun crime messages," September 26) was because of the racist graffiti that had been tagged over it and little kids that had scrawled over it with markers.

Isn't that exactly what's happened? And in a very positive, topical way as well. Why on earth didn't your report manage to communicate that simple point? Very lazy journalism.
