Angry Mindless Vandalism

So......I am currently halfway between bl*^#y seething and utterly disgusted.

Today, I needed to pop down to Cardiff - not a common occurrence for me, as Iím a bit of a country bumpkin and not keen on venturing into the heaving metropolis.

So....off I pootle, down to St Davids 2 multistory carpark. I spin all the way to level 6 out of 8, when there are less cars parked in their sardine-like spaces. Here, on level 6, there are oodles of empty bays - whole rows of them.

Now, my daily is a Toyota Land Cruiser 200, as I farm cattle for a living and need something large and capable for towing a trailer with 3 tonnes of beef in it. The Land Cruiser is a large, black lump of a thing and takes up every inch of a parking space. With this in mind, I park in well away from other vehicles, in a totally empty line of spaces.

I return after 1 hour and 15 minutes - to find some utterly brain-dead, fetid, vomit-stain on humanity - some knuckle-dragging, bottom-feeding boil on the posterior of existence, has wandered around my truck gouging the paintwork in a long, ceaseless line.....all the way down BOTH sides, front to back.

WHY???

I utterly despair. You work by hard for your money, pay all the blood-suckers their ďdueĒ (taxes etc) and - with the little thatís left, buy the necessaries in order to keep earning said wage. In my case, the Land Cruiser. So some gormless tt can vandalise it.

Rant over. Sort of. Still fuming, though

Sickening.
Is it worth reporting to the garage management and police? Is there any chance they might have cctv coverage?
Would be something at least if the vandal could be caught and punished.

CCTV....^^^^^as Chris mentioned.

Iíll have to encourage you to chase it up yourself, the plod will be too understaffed or off dealing with a child grooming case somewhere, not.

Thanks to Chris and Verbout.

I have contacted the carpark in question and have been told only the Police can request the CCTV footage. Apparently, I need to call 101, which I shall do now............

Hope you told them to hold the footage while the police finish their donuts.

Itíll take a Data Protection request from the police to access and get a copy of the footage. Itís a, or it was, a simple form signed by an inspector. Itís amazing the number of plods donít know this and turn up demanding CCTV footage.

Iíve informed my wife on the procedure and when plod comes into her libraries she schools them on the procedure.

Good luck, the only fly in the ointment is the police pulling their finger out.

Office Chair.

I don't get why anybody does that. What satisfaction the ****bags get from it.

The thing is I see so many cars with these gouges on. New, old expensive and cheap, it really does not seem to matter to the ****s that do it.

I saw the thread about car badge thieving and have to hold up my hands. As a kid I had a 'collection' though the majority were from scrapyards (you could go in them even as a youngster and with my dad) I did take the odd one from cars on the road (my dad would kill me if he was alive today and knew).
I'd kill me for it today too but in my very poor defence there was a means to an end in that I had a possession.

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
