car got keyed





When to the bank to cash my check today and after I came out of the bank my car passenger side rear fender got keyed and passenger side rear tire got slashed. Called the 911, took them 40mins to get there and officer told me there was nothing he can do but make a report, because he don't see security cameras in the parking lot. Made me write a report and left. I wasn't satisfied with the way he helped me, he didn't even try. So, I ask the manager if there was a security cameras that can see the parking lot, he said yes, and he will check it out see what happen. After few mins he came out and said he looked at the video in fast pace mod and there are cameras in the parking lot that shows my car and can zoom in close, but he can't show me the video. He only can show it to a police office. So, I call 911 again, 1 hr later a office come by. I told him what happen to my car and there were security cameras that in the parking lot. He told me he will check out the video and call me if anything. And he said the only way to catch whoever keyed my car, the video have to show every thing, not just a person walk by my car. ( In the video it have to show the person's hand with a object key the car in the right angle) fuck

To all the Expert, will wet sand and wax take out the keyed marks?
Which number wet sand or steps should I use.

Thanks

Update
Try it myself with wet sand, didn't like it because I can still see it if I'm close..

Paid a shop $800 to get it paint it, 100% matched.

Sorry to hear

I hate people. That looks like it's going to be too deep to recover.

A wet sand progression + polish could make it less noticeable, otherwise a respray is the only option to make it 100%.

Sucks man..this is why we can't have nice things. Does that pick show the slashed tire? I'm not even sure what a slashed tire is.

Sorry to hear this man. Unfortunately, color sand and buff will not do. You will need to re-paint the panel

Sucks hate to see this. Hope you can get it handled.

Were you driving aggressive or cut someone of on the way to the bank? I would think someone needs a motive to do this.

Adding to this question... were you parked in a spot? Or double parked in some fashion like rules don't apply to you?

If you carry a big stick, sometimes you have to walk softly.

Something motivated the keyer. Was he parked in a spot or not?

I'm not a parking cop, but I don't like it when people display a sense of privilege and entitlement, like the rules don't apply to them.

Sounds like the car was parked on the path of travel if someone just walked by and keyed it.

Sounds like you are making one assumption after another...and we all know what happens when you assume..

You're right, I am. There's only so many circumstances where keying occurs. As I said, something motivated the vandalism.

Again..not always... sometimes people vandalize cars just because they are d-bag haters..thats it

There isnt "always" a motive..people hate for no reason..it isnt always prompted by the victim
