Putting The Finger On Crime

Woo hoo! Go Mayor of Las Vegas Oscar Goodman! He reckons graffiti vandals should have their thumbs cut off:

Goodman said the city has a beautiful highway landscaping project and "these punks come along and deface it."
He also said:

"...whippings should be brought back for children who get into trouble."
Predictably, an education industry representative, state university system regent Howard Rosenberg, appearing of the same episode of the TV show Nevada Newsmakers, insulted Goodman and said 'cutting off the thumbs of taggers won't solve the problem'.

Of course, Rosenberg is right - it might slow you down but you can still hold and operate a spray can with a thumb missing.

You need to cut off their index finger as well.
