MTA Attacked With Federal Stimulus Cash

10.08.09 Will Sherman


After whitewashing SABER’s massive LA River piece, contractors for the US Army Corps of Enginers have begun painting over a giant MTA roller nearby. Measuring “57 feet high and one-third of a mile long,” the Metro Transit Assassins piece is being eradicated with nearly a million dollars of economic stimulus funding oddly allocated for sprucing up the glorified drainage ditch. LA authorities claim it took “up to 40 taggers,” to paint the three letters, most of whom weren’t arrested in the LAPD roundup of alleged MTA members earlier this year. |CBS 13|
