Honduras fights gangs by making jailed members paint over their graffiti

From Associated Press.

In the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa, inmates brandishing white paint rollers are taken under armed escort to paint over gang tags. The inmates belonged to the Mara Salvatrucha gang, commonly known as MS-13. Gangs like Salvatrucha or Barrio 18 often use graffiti to mark territory or advertise illicit drug selling points.
