How to Deter Vandals
By an edhat reader
There is an unruly group of kids on bikes (junior high age?) vandalizing and causing trouble on the Eastside. I've seen them yelling, riding down Cota in the middle of the street, stopping to urinate on bushes, and congregating in front of one of their houses in the 600 block of N Voluntario.
The past month they've been riding around throwing rocks at cars and houses. This has been reported to the police again and again. One neighbor on Voluntario and Montecito street has been repeatedly targeted. Yesterday he says they caused $1000 in damage to their cars. The police didn't even respond.
Do you have any suggestions? Why won't the police respond?
