Not The worst crime somebody could commit.

We have an elderly neighbor in our street who would vandalized parked vehicles in front of their house by pouring earth on the hood of the car or the seat of a motorcycle. I don't know why these people do these, but they're a nuisance.

You scratch my car I write a comment on your wall. Just lucky that no knives or fire was involved.

After that dude messed with his car, I hope he spraypainted a big something that rhymes with Venus.

So glad that mild incidents like these make national news in Japan unlike the steady stream of violence that makes regular news in my home country and many other places.

It is very easy and cheap to get a camera that would have recorded those supposed events of the man damaging the car. After all it is not like it could happen anytime anywhere but only when Akiyama parked his car there. If he had recorded that it would have made a very easy case and Akiyama could have had his revenge legally.

I know the feelings someone broke my cars too the window side mirror and scratch it harder but no evidence. I just cry when I saw it.

Once I inconsiderately parked my car at a hotel. When I returned someone had placed a pretty flower on the bonnet. It made me smile and to this day have never parked where I shouldn't

If he liked his car as i like mine he would ask the carpark space owner if he could park there , normally some consideration is all it takes. Property vandalism is not okay, now he can"t denie the video footage, what a impulse behaviour, is he a skater or some kind of rebel ?
