Why Would Someone Do Such A Thing?!!

  1. Well. I just kind of need to vent for a second and it's too early for anyone to be awake here.
    I've been up very sick since 4 am. (it is now 6:25am)
    I feel horrible and just want to cry.
    I think my son getting sick too...and its his first Christmas so I don't want him to be sick.
    And the number one reason I need to vent:

    SOMEONE SHOT OUT THE WINDOWS TO OUR ECLIPSE THAT WE ARE TRYING TO SELL. yes. My dad went out to get in his work van and saw that someone had SHOT OUT the windows to my nicest car. They also shot out a dozen windows on a school bus parked out there. A sheriff's card was on the drivers seat so my dad came back in to break the news to me and my fiancee. I just wanted to cry. Who would DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT?! The cop said that they got a call about gunshots (which is weird for my neighorhood cuz it's a NICE neighborhood) and he said that a couple of kids were shooting up things, like my car, and they ran when the cops came. SO WHY DIDN'T YOU RUN AFTER THEM?!
    We don't have the money to fix this. Hence why we were trying to sell the car...we have no money.
    Merry Christmas to us.

    Thanks for letting me vent.
    I feel a lil better

    Is the car covred by insurance until you sell it?

    I don't know why people do things like this. Just proves that some are too stupid to live.

    I'm sorry this happened to you. It really sucks when things like this happen, especially when you're sick and it's Christmas.

    As far as the cops not running after the kids, maybe they couldn't. If someone's armed you really don't go running after them without a lot of backup. I wouldn't, anyway.

    Hopefully though they will soon get caught. Somebody knows who they are.

    Sorry you're ill.

    I don't understand why people are so STUPID! How can that be so thrilling? Go to a theme park and ride a rollar coaster, go bungey jump for thrills......something.

    When I was young, we dealt with a local hoodlem going around the neighborhood slashing tires. :angryfire The jerk was caught.

    Aaaargh. This really stinks. The only hope is that someone will turn these idiots in and you can get some money back. Or the media will pick up on it or something.

    I had the same thing happen a couple of christmas's ago. Some kids were shooting out car windows all over town. The cost to replace the window on my 2001 Explorer was $895. My deductable-- $1000. I was thinking of trading it in anyway, so I went to the local dealer and traded it in for a Town and Country MV. I got top dollar for my Explorer.

    We had something similar in our neighborhood soon after my oldest son died last year. A pair of idiot twins were doing drive-by BB shootings. Police stopped them, then let them go. :angryfire But we haven't seen the kids since.
