Some of us remember the words "Houston, I believe we have a problem." Or something close to that.

Oh well. Dont mess with other people knowing they know where your property is parked. Street justice if deserved.

This is called "criminal mischief"???!!! If I walk out one morning and I saw my windshield smashed, I would definitely want justice. The poor victims are left to clean up the mess and pay for repair while solving these crimes receive low priority. These crimes deserve stiffer penalties including jail time.

Most the time when that sort of thing happens its because you deserved it. Rarely is it random thing. You do someone wrong and mess with someone you shouldn't you have to take and accept any retaliation that may occur.
