Sounds somewhat familiar to all of the car fires in LA a month or so ago. Ended up being a very unstable person with an axe to grind. This could be the same thing, and will be best solved if community members keep their eyes open for this sort of thing - police can't be everywhere. We all need to be watchful. This person(s) has nothing to gain - and is obviously very angry about something.

Just out of curiosity, were any of the vehicles in driveways or were they all parked on the street? It is interesting that 3 cars were slashed at one address in the most recent string of slashings.

I think something has to be done about this, and fairly soon. Whoever is doing this is getting positive reinforcement that he will continue to get away with the destruction. I don't read any specific police actions or plan to catch this guy but I would suggest setting up a temporary camera in high profile areas, where a large number of cars are parked. Additional patrols during peak time of the crime could be the ticket.

Sounds like the work of troubled people.

Agree the police cannot be everywhere.

It is up to us to keep our eyes and ears open to spot suspicious activity to catch those responsible.

yes ,but police are still cruising around staring at the same group of know, john chavez, the harmless mexican american who drinks too much. doesent bother anyone,helps his handicapped friend! since police dont care about real crimes besides pot smokers, it means they must have other plans for society ,like massive roundups, its like they are waiting for orders, not really concerned about people. like theyre in this ''were waiting for orders for concentration camp orders'', thats why they harass pot smokers. pot makes you see natural reality. it actually showds you whats going to happen to earth. thats why they no want you to smoke it!
