I'm on the same page as you, in theory. The reality of the situation and the moment is very very different. If i really have to comment, without filter, i'd let some hero do the whole "Justice" thing, and get that dude the punishment he deserves, however, i would not want to be that hero. Lots of cars are vandalised all year round i'm sure. The retribution you speak of, i think you have to get a really bad experience at least once in your life, to see it from my perspective. Maybe lose an arm or permanently lose an eye for the rest of your life , and you're gonna tell people, it was over getting justice from someone vandalising your car. After this experience, you will sing a different tune. Meanwhile, i understand if the blood boils within you over such matters. In the OP's case, that guy is fishing for an altercation. He's probably just itching for that confrontation. Altercations usually boil down to who has more to lose in my opinion. Its very hard to beat someone with nothing to lose, and that guy might really have naught to lose. Just my 2 cents.
