Why do people rip Mercedes Hood Emblems off of our Cars?

Last night at 12 midnite, right in front of my House, I saw a kid drive by my 83 240D and then suddenly stop, reverse, and then I saw him get out of his car.
He ripped the hood emblem right off my painstakingly restored 240D and screeched away.
The whole action was so presposterous at the moment that I didnt do anything. I was stunned, but calm ..but at the same time I realized it was just a replaceable part, maybe $30.00..
This morning another Mercedes owner confided to me that this had happened to him twice....Why do kids do this?
Should I "thread" my next hood ornament in and take it with me on my key chain?
