View Full Version : You see a vandal keying your car. Do you...

It happened in Athens, Greece, one hot summer evening of 2003. I parallel-parked my 2003 Honda CRV (my car in Greece) in a busy sea-side district full of caffeterias and chic lounges. I was not 300 feet away from my car when a man approached me to tell me that I should park somewhere else, because cars get vandalized by the owner of the house next to that specific parking spot: "He thinks that's his own spot, although he has no legal right to reserve it, it is on public street". As I begin heading back towards the car to survey the scene, I see this other man running a key along the side of my car, from headlight to taillight. I run towards him, and this stupid folk runs towards his house! I tackle him from behind as he was trying to open his front door....
I am 26 y.o., 6'7" (2.00m), 335lbs (140Kg), played college football and basketball in the U.S. and pro basketball in Greece. He is about 45 y.o, 5'8", 180lbs tops.

Given that I went after him and ended up on top of him (which I should have never done because I broke his clavicle doing so!)......Here is the question?

Would you break the rest of his bones OR have him arrested?

Have in mind that he has vandalized numerous cars.

Well, I don't know about a country where I'm not sure of the laws, but here in the US, I would have beaten him something silly and when the cops finally showed up say I caught him keying the car and then he tried to fight me.

I know it's a bit of bending the truth, but I'm sure as you hit him, he could try and fight back, right?

I've already got a few scratches on my only 4 week old Z4. One of them from a person on the passenger door. If I saw them do it, I'm not sure I could control myself.

If I were built like you, I also would tackle him and scare the crap out of him, and then call the police. Beating up the guy is risky (XtraSmiley raises a good point about local laws), but tackling him would at least shake him up. Go crazy too, like you've lost all sanity and are this close to curb-stomping his face. :)

If you have a buddy with you, it'd be nice if he pretended to hold you back and said stuff like, "No man! No blood tonight, PLEASE! I CAN'T HANDLE YOUR RAGE, MAN!! IT'S TOO MUCH!! THINK OF ALL THE BROKEN FAMILIES YOU'VE CREATED!! WHYYYYYYYY??!?! Why, you stupid bastard, of all the cars you could've keyed, why my homicidal buddy? He's a good guy, I swear!" And then start bawling like he's lost all hope for humanity.

I think the least you could do is vandalize his house :dunno:. I mean, how stupid can you get? If you are going to vandalize people's cars make sure they don't know where you live.

You could have the Tuesday night Brick through the living room window ritual. First Tuesday of every month :rofl:.

If you can do it, snap a pic of him in the act. File a report to the police to get his info. File a lawsuit to recover damages for the intentional and unreasonable infliction of mental or emotional distress as result of the damage done to your true love (and also for the money to fix it as well)



... after you're paid, then start the Tuesday-night-Brick-through-the-living-room-window ritual.

Interesting responses. All of them flashed through my mind during the 9 seconds of my sprint-and-tackle maneuver (the good guy who was trying to warn me, later confessed that he did not know big guys can ran that fast. :D )

I resisted extracting his teeth one by one because there were already 2 witnesses around.

I did tackle him, though, just like in college, which broke his clavicle as he fell on the ground, and then I sat on his low back (which was hurt, too, since I am a bit on the heavy side), and twisted his arm to immobilize him while waiting for the cops.

We settled out of court. I threatened to gather every neighbour and witness and make him pay for every single scratched car in Athens. He agreed to have my entire car repainted.

Few years back, my brand new MR-S got stolen 4 months after laucnh and never recovered. The insurance did not pay in full and usually we don't want to get the same car again because of 'bad luck'. So the loss is not just a car but it is a big waste of our time on all those time and energy for making buying decisions, delivery waiting, registration, break-in. I would shoot anyone touches my cars if I have that power to do any possible things outlaw.

This almost exact thing happened to me on fri night. i was in my room and my mother in law runs in and said someone just busted off the mirror of my wifes lexus. i grab my keys and jump in. me and her hubby jump in the car and the chase is on. i end up catching them aout a mile down the road. i follow them until they pul into an apt complex. two people get out of the back, him and i hop out and get ready to brawl because we know there are at least 2 more in the front seats so we need to even the odds pretty quick. the drivers take off and the two that got out run. so we follow the car. it goes all over the city with its lights off. we end up getting them stopped and they get out. there is still 3 in the car lol. but luckily they didnt loose any teeth, one of them took off imediatly. but all the while we are on my cell giving the police te directions we are going. so they are there about 15 seconds after we get them stopped. the have weed, beer, no insurance, suspended liscense, and under 21. they only got 2 tickets, no ins and liscence, but i am still pressing charges and the guys dad him and the thrower came to my house saying they would pay for damages if we dropped charges. come to find out they threw a bottle of bacardi at my car and it hit the door and busted, thats where she heard the glass sound from. it smashed up my door pretty good.

I am 26 y.o., 6'7" (2.00m), 335lbs (140Kg), played college football and basketball in the U.S. and pro basketball in Greece. He is about 45 y.o, 5'8", 180lbs tops.

Given that I went after him and ended up on top of him (which I should have never done because I broke his clavicle doing so!)......Here is the question?

Would you break the rest of his bones OR have him arrested?

Have in mind that he has vandalized numerous cars.

Well, even if he has vandalized numerous cars in the past, why should that bother you? I don't know what the laws are in Greece, but if the situation would've happened here in the U.S. think about the consequences for a moment. You catch him and beat the crap out of him. You get arrested for assualt because the moment you go beyond physical restraint you're guilty and end up going to jail. It doesn't matter if he's the guilty one or started it. Once a person stops resisting or fighting back, you have to back off. Ever heard of police brutality? If they go to far, they're screwed. Plenty of examples in the past.

Now I know you might want to beat the crap out of him to make him remember, and lets be honest, who the hell wouldn't, but just make sure you hit him really hard the first couple times...then he'll stop resisting anyway :thumbup:


I'm just flaming now. I hate this stupid thread and poll. So many more people said they would beat the crap out of the person, but what people say they'd do and what they actually would do is quite different. Sociology minor here, so yeah, studies have proven that.

I'd get a detailed description, take a picture if I happen to have my camera, call the cops, and help them chase him down. If they don't get there in time, sure, try to restrain him (size permitting of course). Realisticly there's not much you can do, I mean a police cruiser isn't going to come race through traffic endangering others lives just so they can catch someone who is keying your car....they've got better things to do. :rolleyes:

Well....that's kinda what I did! No need for pics, there was an eye witness, who was aware of the vandal's guilty past.

Given that I knew the vandal's residence....you're right...I should have let him go. I had a witness! But my first thought was....."GO GET HIM"...he could have been holding a knife or carrying a weapon....that would make my decision a very stupid one!

I did not begin thinking clearly before immobilizing him. As I was seating on his back, twisting his arm, I was actually trying to think clearly and act so I can have my car fixed, not take revenge.

Then the police came. No intentional beating before that, as much as I wanted to.

The temptation though was HUGE! I so wanted to stomp his head on his marble stairs.

You're right....in the court everybody would see a 6'7" 335 lbs man next to an older, much smaller person with a broken clavicle....it would not look too good for me!

Dr. G. I'm 22, 6'2, and around 190, not really big, but athletic and in shape...I'd be scared if I was the guy you were chasing :eek:

I would've loved to see his face when he realized you were coming after him though. And I can just see a MasterCard commercial coming on:

Car rental for the weekend - £200.00

Meter in front of a crazy man's house - £0.50

Realizing you made a grown man wet himself after he keyed your car - Priceless :rofl:

And this was just a rental :eeps:

Glad to hear he didn't have any weapons either.

Inspired by the wounding of my love, I was amazed to find that a little of the old rugby player still resides in this “well upholstered” body. Thankfully the guy walking with me, was a cop, and no charges were filed…….

Happened last summer before joining this forum, cost the “kid” (use any colorful adjective that you would like) a lot more then his milk money to fix my car. I wanted the death penalty, but my wife took his case.

Should have seen the look on his face when this “athlete” caught him from behind at a dead sprint. “Warp drive is available, but not recommended.”

My ex-roommate and I had an argument this past semester nearly getting in a fist fight.

Some people had stopped us before we got at each other.

Soon after, she left storming from the dorms--little did I know she was going to key my car on the way to her car and to add to my torment, she kicked leaving huge dents on both the front and back doors on the passenger. Scratch marks scribbled on the trunk, along the back, across the "330i" emblem, and all along the passenger side.

That Oldmobile Cutless driving bitch has yet to have been caught. Still in "investigation" by the campus police--also known as rent a cops.

Revenge will be oh so sweet...

Although I'd prefer to be a bit more personal about the whole situation.

oh man how do you fit yourself in the crv?

Well it is the only choice. I call it the "biggest-little-SUV". Anything bigger than a small SUV like a RAV4, CR-V, X-terra, X3 etc. and you cannot make a turn in the narrow roads of Athens. I am not too comfy in there, though. I fit much better in my 2001 325 convertible.

Even medium SUVs (say like trailblazer) are too big and their huge engines make them too expensive (19% sales tax, and yearly registration based on engine size in liters). The minute you go over a 2.00L CR-V, you open a can of worms.

I actually like the CR-V. In its 110,000 km life (70,000 miles) it has only asked for gas and oil. :)

Depends how much you are afraid of spending a few nights in a Greek jail. May have to sleep on your back, from what I hear. Other then that, I’d drop him like a bad habit. Not only does it make you feel better, but maybe that will stop him from vandalizing other people’s cars.

I would definitely catch the guy and have him resist arrest while falling down the stairs in a 1 story police station. That being said, there's always surgical amputations of offending digits so that it does not occur again. It's hard to key a car while holding the key in your right foot while balancing on the left foot because you have no arms left. These are the lowest of criminal scum who cannot even commit a real crime. Cowards, the lot of them!

My mom had a brand new 1983 Benz 380SL back in the day and it did not take 1 week for someone to take a key to the doors and trunk just for no reason other than spite. I have no tolerance to such cowards who hate their own lives so much that they have to mess with other people's stuff. Imagine the depths of depravity these losers must live in to commit such acts.

Any way I think I'd catch the ****er, knock him out and get a couple of my friends to help me tie him/her to the back of my car upside down so their hands are on the pavement. then I'd go for a country drive and see if they'd changed there mind about destroying someone else's hard earned expensive property! If they gave me the right answer I'd let 'em go, if not, then it would be time to really get to work!!!!!!!!:mad:

Get a real good one and get compensated for emotional, psychological, and other losses associated with time and energy to fix the scratch and time away from work. :)

I would have beaten him silly after making sure that I would have been able to say that he threw the first punch. i.e. if there were witnesses, I probably would have just called the cops. If my friends were witnesses, it'd be On like Donkey Kong ...

Keying isn't the only crime against ones machine. I had someone leaving a parallel parking space slightly, yes just barely scratch the paint, brush my car. I was enraged as they drove away, but let it slide. A week later I was in an Napa Auto Parts parking lot picking up a turn signal bulb and this greasy guy comes up and says he can fix my scratch. I said, "no, thank you." He proceded to take a rubber mallot out as well as some weird iron rod and proceeds to beat on my car. Not only does he make the paint scratch worse but he dents the front quarter panel bad enough that I think it's going to need replacing. I told him I was calling the police and he ran. The Napa people say that people are always hanging out in the parking lot offering to "fix" people's cars. I'm sorry, but if i had a firearm at the time then someone might have been hurt.

I would not shoot anyone for a "petty" crime. I'm not going to jail for something silly. But, make no mistake it is well within the law to defend oneself and one's property. I would absolutely beat the **** out them and they better hope none of my people are around 'cause we all live by the same philosophy. "I WISH a Mother****a would do some ****"!. We don't hope for the best, we are prepared for the worst. I tell you what though. I wish I could take a motha - F*$ka like that and run a wire from my positive post on my battery and strap it to their balls/nips and let them feel the "shock" I feel when I see my car.

Hmmm, I believe you have an interesting point there mi lad. But alas I have an answer indeed! As a father of a two year old and a four year old, I believe this is a resolvable situation!. There's only so much damage a child of such a tender age can do. So I propose that the parents of said "demon", I mean child own up and pay for the damages in full. This is exactly what I would do in the unlikely event that this were my progeny! Now, an unattended child left to his/her own devices develops two problems, bad or lack of parents or weak minded parents prone to forgetfullness. In case two refer to solution above. In case one the "Bad" parents should be subject to my former reply's punishment or, being a ward of the state, the state should pay for my damages. :thumbup: Got more questions?

Few years back, my brand new MR-S got stolen 4 months after laucnh and never recovered. The insurance did not pay in full and usually we don't want to get the same car again because of 'bad luck'. So the loss is not just a car but it is a big waste of our time on all those time and energy for making buying decisions, delivery waiting, registration, break-in. I would shoot anyone touches my cars if I have that power to do any possible things outlaw.

When my brand new 600cc sport bike got stolen, I had it replaced by the exact same bike and saved myself 1000$ coz the insurance folks gave me 500$ more than what I paid for the bike and when I bought it again, i was able to negotiate a better deal of 500$ less!

Depends on who is the vandaler:

If I can overpower the vandaler, I will beat him for sure.

If a hot chick does it, I would start a wrestle with her.

Meh... I voted on the front page... before reading the situation. I voted Beat him to a pulp.

What I would have done in this situation though, is beat him until he stopped fighting, call the cops, and then beat him till he stopped fighting again after finding out he was gonna be arrested. I don't agree with these liberal morons that say you shouldn't defending your property for risk of being hurt. THEY shouldn't have considered messing with ME for risk of being hurt!


I heard one colleges solution for if you saw a woman being raped in the parking lot was to call security, and leave... knowing it'll take security 15 to 20 minutes to arrive. Security's answer was "she's only being raped, she'll live." :mad: I would shoot the guy before I called security, screw the law. I've found that in most situations police are useless, I've learned to defend myself, and the people around me. If police are on the scene at the time of the crime, I'll let them handle it. Otherwise, there's no way I'll let someone else be hurt while I'm around.

I let her drive so when we left the theater and were walking to the car she had the keys and was a bit ahead of me... there was a guy figiting with the HRE rims!!! she said something ( I was laggign behind cuz I was looking at a 360 spider in the lot :thumbup: ) and as I looked up I saw him walk quickly towards her with his hand clasping a wrench. I ran around a van and came up on the side of him with the business end of my HK USP .40 pointed at him temple!!! He dropped the wrench and ran! Legally I could have popped his ass because he was armed and was in the comission of a crime, but I kept my cool and we got out of there after calling the police and reporting it. The rim he was screwing with had to be refinished..... thinking back I should have shot the ****er!!!:mad:

I'm not sure about the laws in Athens, but here in the US that a$$hole might have tried to counter-sue for assault. In the US any citizen is allowed to "arrest" (detain) another that is caught comitting a crime. The question is: would one risk bodily injury here (who knows what the person is carrying--a gun/knife?) to stop the guy. If he appeared to be unarmed, it could be a risk to take to apprehend him until the cops arrive, but the absolute best thing that anyone could do is to get photographic proof (or a video) of him keying the car. That's the first thing any judge here would ask for, and should easily win a suit against the guy.

I hope cntlaw was being humorous... the use of deadly force if someone is against the law unless you are in danger of extreme physical harm... so you'd have the say the guy was stealing your car and tried to run you over (assault with a deadly weapon) in the process, then you could shoot him ;-)

It happened in Athens, Greece, one hot summer evening of 2003. I parallel-parked my 2003 Honda CRV (my car in Greece) in a busy sea-side district full of caffeterias and chic lounges. I was not 300 feet away from my car when a man approached me to tell me that I should park somewhere else, because cars get vandalized by the owner of the house next to that specific parking spot: "He thinks that's his own spot, although he has no legal right to reserve it, it is on public street". As I begin heading back towards the car to survey the scene, I see this other man running a key along the side of my car, from headlight to taillight. I run towards him, and this stupid folk runs towards his house! I tackle him from behind as he was trying to open his front door....
I am 26 y.o., 6'7" (2.00m), 335lbs (140Kg), played college football and basketball in the U.S. and pro basketball in Greece. He is about 45 y.o, 5'8", 180lbs tops.

Given that I went after him and ended up on top of him (which I should have never done because I broke his clavicle doing so!)......Here is the question?

Would you break the rest of his bones OR have him arrested?

Have in mind that he has vandalized numerous cars.

That is awesome that you broke his clavical. That is the least that I would have done... Both his legs sounds a little more fitting to me, but whatever...

I would call it even after that!

If it happens where no witnesses around.. Grab him, blindfold him, duct tape his mouth and chain him to a nearby tree/post (make sure its hard to get him free.. use padlock from ur gym bag if you have to.. then throw the key away) .. strip him to his undies (throw away the clothes if you have to) and put a sign "I've vandalized cars, please do whatever you want with me" then leave him.. call your insurance company later for the damage :angel:

Would you electrocute her with your car battery? Or even beat the living crap out of her?

hehe be realistic.

Understand that retaliation is carried out as a result of the vandal's intent, not simply their crime. Highly unlikely a 5 year old girl would maliciously vandalize one's car, but would more likely damage the car on accident. The difference is that this asshole scratched the CR-V on purpose because he had penis-envy, or something. This guy is nothing more than an under-developed primate who doesn't deserve to live in the world of civilization where humans have respect for one another. He's so chicken $hit to damage your property rather than deal with his issues like a NORMAL human being, he clearly demonstrates extreme mental deficiency.

I agree with the majority here, if I saw someone intentionally vandalizing my property, I would act with enough force to make sure they didn't EVER do it again. In the good ol' days, people who committed crimes had appendices cut from their body setting an example to the public, and ensuring the vandal would NEVER repeat his act...If someone keys your car, I think they should lose a hand.

I'm curious though, (CR-V OWNER), when you settled with the vandal, did you ask him what the f*ck he was thinking? What was he trying to achieve by keying your car?

I hate assholes!

I actually keyed a guys car badly when I was 20. It happened at a busy shopping mall. As I was backing up to park my car, a guy just suddenly rushed in my parking spot head first, got out of his car and said, "Sorry dude, I'm late!" I replied, "That's still no excuse do you know that?" The guy then said, "Then sue me!"

I would have been ok if he apologized and maybe gave me some BS story about how he is behind on his house payments and can't afford to be fired or some **** like that.

But no!

So I got irked and about after 5 mins, I got my pocket knife and ****ed up the driver side of his car real bad.

I feel bad about it come to think of it, but every time I remember his tone of voice, I actually feel so good! Even until now.

Why the hate? Its not that I love my car that much - its just a car. However, I've had to pay to have the doors and fender repainted on my truck when some kids decided to key both sides of it for no apparent reason. It wasn't cheap at the time, plus cost me when I sold it too (since the dealer could tell it had been repainted). How much would hurt someone that stole a couple thousand dollars from you? Kill, no, but a broken limb sounds fair.
