Tagging during an investigation
This isn't new the first time I saw this it was 2008 at Moundsville prison. Some of the teams that had been there previously had tagged the place in numerous locations. Actually defacing the walls to paint there team on a wall. This is vandalism and they should be prosecuted. Now I see its still happening and looks to be getting worse. These teams should be fined and brought back to repaint the entire room or wall they tag.
The rest of the story
Belief bias occurs when we make illogical conclusions in order to confirm our preexisting beliefs. Belief perseverance refers to our tendency to maintain a belief even after the evidence we used to form the belief is contradicted.
I've gotta few other choice things I'd like to see done to them! =( Anyone that has the mentality to do something like this doesn't have clue one about respect.

Things like this give the field a bad name unless we speak up against it. Thanks for sharing and I plan on sharing as well.

I am appalled. Actions such as this is serving no purpose. It will deter locations from allowing investigators on their premises. It is a sad day when a paranormal team defaces property.

I see this done at so many places I've been to. Beautiful headstones, crumbling ruins, centuries old seems like none of them are spared and it makes me so sad and angry. Some of the groups that have done it even claim to be "professional" - pthbbt!
I've seen stories on the news maybe 4 or 5 times in the last few years. In these incidents, people suspect teenagers purposely defaced or destroyed headstones on many graves. I recall that one elderly woman reminded me, in her own words, its so bad that these kids don't have anything better to do. Clearly, she was looking at another aspect of the same old kind of behavior we've all seen before. She had a genuine interest in the welfare of these vandals.

Please realize that I don't know what the original incident is that is being discussed here. Still, this isn't news to me. It just keeps on happening. If these people can be identified from whatever logo they created at one site or another, I hope that they will not simply be prosecuted. It would be nice if someone could steer them in the right direction to do things that are productive, and maybe they can even find something constructive to do..., and maybe even be given some public recognition as evidence they can be a source of good.

While I can agree that this would be a good opportunity for a team that would do this to turn around and perhaps even speak to other teams about not doing this...I do think that anyone who does this should be prosecuted. Not only does this give other teams a bad name and make owners of locations hesitant to allow anyone else to investigate, it is breaking a law.

I am finding recently that age does not seem to matter when it comes to destruction. Here in my town there was a sixty year old woman arrested for stomping on floodlights next to graves in a cemetery. In Michigan, there was a 71 year old man arrested on suspicion of starting forest fires. The team that did this particular incident of the tagging by no means were teenagers.

I have a great deal of compassion for what people go through and what causes them to act out. I used to want to make it my life's work to help people in this situation, and my daughter is considering a career in this as well. However, before any gifts of that compassion can be received fully, there has to be ownership and responsibility taken for actions committed and a price must be paid. Only then does it actually make a difference.
