With only a mile left on today's ride I ran into 3 punk kids vandalizing a new construction home. The development is off a quiet road near my house and the new home has been vacant for over a year and has been
vandalized several times. I believe the development is now owned by a bank but it is in a nice area where homes typically start @ $500K. I ride by the development several times a week and have been annoyed that
it has become a magnet for punk kids up to no good so when I ran into these idiots in the middle of the day I just reacted. I aggressively road up to them shouting expletives and telling them the police were on there
way although I hadn't actually called the police . They immediatley jumped in their cars (I'm guessing they were around 20) but foolishly drove the wrong way into the development which has no outlet.
About a minute late they came back in my direction and while the first car tore past me the second car stopped and the kid threatened me. I was really juiced on adrenaline at this point so I went back at him with a
expletive filled tirade and he took off. Now that I have calmed down I really regret that I just didn't call the police and let them handle it. I ride all the time in this area and now am concerned that I will run into these guys
again and they might do something stupid like try to run me off the road etc. I'm already paranoid about teenage texting drivers running me over and now I have the added concern of dealing with the local deliquents.
Adrenaline and testosterone got the better of me today .... I hope I don't live to regret it.
