I would not let this deed go unpunished.These kids have no fear
A paintball gun fired at a high rate of speed with paintballs splattering their butts,their legs, their backs, and possibly even thier ugly little skulls.
Pain is the key. Shoot them until they dissapear and they probably wont come back.
Its simple and effective and it works great on dogs that you dont want to kill.
Wow ! You handled it much better than I would have !

Record it, show the police, sue the parents, have them incarcerated.
Also if they ganged up on you, stand your ground

It's better to prevent a crime, than to punish it.
Not sure what the laws are as far as shooting someone with a paint gun around here. Not sure where to find out what the laws are about something like that.
If you shoot them with any type of weapon you will get charged. Best let the police handle it and hope for the best. Watering them down does sound like a good option though.

Are the local LEO's dusting for prints? Any other reports of this kind of behavior? That probably wasn't their only stop.

If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand
I'd be letting my doberman out to either scare them away or keep them stuck on the car until police arrived. I'd also have my cell phone to record them, pepper spray and gun just in case.

Fascinating story. Obviously it is probably hard to think when something like that happens. That is why it is always good for us to discuss it on here so we have a plan in place for weird situations. In this case, the correct answer would be to take a photograph or video. Next step is to pepper spray them or shoot them. I'd say a pellet gun, as others have mentioned. However, that would most likely penetrate the skin and go into the meat of their ass (or wherever you shoot them) and who knows.. a court of law might say that is excessive force.

I'm wondering if you can expect their return. Either way, now is the time to put a plan together. I'd start with talking with the local LEO's. They're often happy to step up patrols for a 30-day period. Maybe think about some deer-cams and motion-detector lights. Evil seems to come in younger packages these days, the next time may not be just vandalism.
