Be careful...it works both ways

Folks

"All you got to do is level a bead from the 45 on them and they won't target your car anymore."

About 10 years ago I guy I work with left an evening softball game. He drove through a "not nice" section of N. Charlotte on the way to the highway around 8:30 pm. While at a stoplight some kids threw mud or a rock at his car. He got out and chased them down. The oldest of the group had a sawed off shotgun. He pointed at my friend's chest, then fired at his leg. It nearly ruined his knee and he still limps. They never caught the kid.

In Texas, drawing a bead on them will get YOU a trip to the jailhouse and a nice lawsuit from the scumbags attorney.

If you haven't seen it, it's one of the funniest things you will see in a long time.

kids crossed the line. period. sue em. make em pay, make em work mowing lawns or somethingfor hte next thirty weekends.


having fun stops when the fun starts being at someone elses expense. especiallyif that someone is not part of the group. if my friends gang up and tart playing tricks on me, thats very different from egging someones car.

Would you have let it slide or done the same?

I'm all for beating the hell out of ANY kid or person that throws ANY projectile at your car...moving or not.

People get killed ever year around here becasue some smartazz kid thought it would be funny to drop large rocks on cars from bridges.

I admit I did something similar though only with super soakers. However I was the lookout and would only OK the shot if it wasn't a nice car...though even water on my freshly cleaned car would get me mad now

I think kids who throw anything at cars need to spend a week with Michael Jackson ...completely unsupervised.
