Canberra’s rampant window smashers?

By kellie_au 15 July 2009 22

Car windows being smashed ..our peaceful Saturday night was ruined when a car drove up and someone lent out the back window and smashed the rear window of our car, we assume with a golf club or bat…..why …. who knows!!!!

We are out of pocket for this and when talking to the guy that replaced our window he said he replaces at least 6 a week for the same reason.

Talking at work about it I was amazed at how many others this has happened to.

Any ideas on how to stop or catch the culprits?

What’s Your opinion?

Gen 3 night vision and a crossbow. Cover the bolts with concentrated oleander or rhubarb stalk juice.

I thought dipping the bolts in your own poo was the style, for that personal touch as bacteria invade the vandal’s body cavities in an orgy of multiplication.

This is easy to solve. First follow the pricks. If this results in them speeding off, with anyluck they crash and die, bingo and the community wins.

The next likely outcome is after a brief chase they stop and run from the car. Now you call the police to pick up the car. Odds are it is stolen and you just helped get someones car back in one peice. Additionally you now have a real crime scene the police will be interested in and hopefully there will be some finger prints. Just remeber when talking to the police that all the adrenalin of the situation caused you to have no idea how fast things got going. 😉

Finally if you let them speed off a bit while keeping close enough to see them. They will likely slow down and head off home or somewhere. Follow them (not too close) and with anyluck you will get to follow them home. (Lets face it someone dumb enough to get their kicks out of such things will be that dumb) It is at this point you move to a safe distance and call a friend who can put together a molotov cocktail quick smart. Then simply do the world a favour.
