Well I believe in karma, the golden rule, the system balancing itself et al. I've seen it happen too often to dismiss it out of hand. Don't worry they ALWAYS get what's coming, they just don't always realize what it's for. Ever wonder why a perfectly nice lady or fellow keels over when they are in perfect health? Say like marathon runners that die of heart failure at age 25. It happens and you know why it happens? Because that marathon runner was keying Ms in his off time that's why.

To the OP I am sorry to see that damage. Haters and cops are the reason I refuse to own a red car; I had a red 2001 Jetta WE, not a Porsche, not a Mustang, but a 4-Door sedan and it was keyed constantly. No matter where or how far away I parked people would go out of their way to key my car or smash shopping carts into it. Driving down the highway being passed by other cars and yet the cop pulls me over because his profile says the dude in the red car HAD to be the one speeding.

It's sad that we live in a world where people hate the players instead of the game. If you want a Bimmer get off your backside and get a job. I've been laid-off eight times (never been fired) so I don't want to hear about how the economy is tough. You know if you get a job at McDonald's and just show up on time you'll be an assistant manager in 6 months and a store manager in year or so. Store Managers can afford a BMW, sure you'll smell like fires the rest of your life, but the point is that you don't need to go around ruining other people's cars you can grow up and buy a BMW to call your own.

My S4 was keyed from left front fender all the way to the back of the car.

I paid out of pocket instead of claiming it on insurance. Had to reprint that whole half of the car.

I wish I could have caught the fucker. ...

I'm not sure if our backgrounds are necessarily different. I appreciate why you would enjoy beating the crap out of an asshole that destroys your or someone else's property. I used to have the same philosophy as you, but several trips to the emergency room, and mandatory anger management programs forced me to rethink my approach. I posted my thoughts because I am trying to be helpful since no one wins in a physical confrontation. Please understand, if you must defend yourself or a loved one, then do what you have to do. Otherwise, it is best not to escalate property crimes to something more.

I agree with everything you are saying. I just can't guarantee you I will listen. Just being honest.

I hear you. Walking away when you feel justified to take action is very difficult. What helps me is imagining me having to explain the incident in question to a judge. Would he find my actions appropriate? If not, then it's time to walk.
