    This is a sucky situation that's for sure. If you attempt to detain them it's two against one, and if they they are high on something they may decide to attack you. You would then be forced to defend yourself and given what's going on in Florida right now I don't think I want to roll the dice on that.

    You could just get in the car, do a peel out and dump there sorry butts on the pavement!

    I guess the 911 call and phone video of their faces is the best way to go. Pepper spray, especially the stuff with the marking dye would be great also!

    I like to think that this is what paintball guns were made for


    In all seriousness though, you handled this well. Doing something that could have landed you in jail or worse would have only made a sticky situation out of nothing (not that kids denting your roof is nothing, but you were in no conceivable danger). I agree that a video of them would have been the best route, and a visit to the school for identification with the principal's office.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Exactly, two against one and not wanting to escalate the problem any more. Keeping in mind I do have my gun on my person, and for fear my gun would be taken if it gotten physical.

    Yes, I am thinking that would have been a good time to discover you had a sudden need to wash your car. With a pressure washer.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    I agree with the other posters video it first so you have proof it did happen and who was doing it then apprehend one of them. Under Texas law you can detain a criminal until the authorities come (basically citizens arrest) but check the laws in your state to make sure you know your rights

Well this went on for several mintues, long enough for me to confront them, run back into the house and grab my phone and speak to the LEO as they where still jumping on my car.

    Anyways, As much as I wanted to let these punks know just how close they were, to getting a gun drawn on them if this situation became life threating, I just held back and called the LEO and filed a report.

    I felt completely helpless, How would others have handled this?
    consider getting less than lethal weapons to use on thugs like this, pepper sprays are an example

    I realize state laws are dofferent but in general, what are citizen legally allowed to do in this situation? I mentioned trying to detain one of them, but with them being minors I'm sure you could get in some kind of trouble for an adult harming a minor regardless of situation. Is pepper spray excess force since you are not in danger? I believe you could shoot them in Texas but not sure this would qualify as defending your property since they didn't seem to make an effort to steal the car(although shooting them is not necessary)

    The garden hose sounds like a good idea- "Needed to wash their dirty footprints off my car". Record the whole thing. Get video of them, get video of you telling them to get off the car, and their refusal.

    If they're seniors, you could beat the mess out of them.


    --What happened to the days where adults could grab kids by the ear and hold them until their parents/the police arrived? If you tried that now you would get SO sued it wouldn't be funny.

    I'm still trying to fathom two kids jumping up and down on my car and giving me the finger...

    Let's hope that never happens to me...
