Came home to see my truck's rear view mirror knocked off. Looks very much like the work of a baseball bat.


Sure it was some of the fine Section 8/HUD/Obamites who live up the road and are a new fixture in Plano, Tx for the last 2 years or so.





Don't know if I should even bother with police report.


ETA: Correction..side view mirror.

Sometimes the adhesive lets go in the heat.



Is there actual damage?

So what bumper stickers do you have?

Is there impact damage or did it just "let go"?

So somebody took a baseball bat to your rearview mirror only?  Not the windows to access the interior or even the sideview mirrors...sounds plausible.

I've had the adhesive fail just from heat and time on a couple cars. Or was it all smashed to shit?

Doubt someone would break into a car to whack off the mirror.

The one inside your windshield? I'm not sure what rearview mirror.

Well the rear view is in the cab, the side view mirrors are on the doors.

This thread should tell you that if you are using your side mirrors as rear view mirrors, you're doing it wrong.

ETA: No bumper stickers but I do have a Browning Buckmark Sticker in Red White Blue.

File a police report and take pictures.  Then get a surveillance camera

Took pics. No Police report yet. Maybe monday.

Should I even do insurance claim? How much does a side view mirror on 08 silverado cost.

Sorry to hear that but look on ebay, online or even a salvage yard unless you have a cheap  deductible

Also check rockauto.com I saw some side mirrors but didn't know which model silverado or what type mirrors you have. Just trying to help

Maybe nothing.  You had your land trespassed on and had property damaged.  You pay taxes.  Filing a report may come up later in a case to convict.



You could have filed the report in less time that you have wasted telling GD about it.

I live near legacy and Chase Oaks.

We got a bunch of low life fucking Obamas living down the street.

All of the houses that were in danger 2 years ago ended up with renters when the owners couldn't pay the mortgage.

That sucks. Someone just broke out my driver side rear view mirror last night no other damage just the mirror. I usually pull it in the driveway on the weekends but left it out. There is a apartment house a block and a half away that has problem tenants they always walk by to get alcohol. But I have no proof, $15.00 to fix.

Could have been bored rich kids as easily as the ghetto goblins. Spoiled rich kids tend to vandalize stuff for no obvious reason more than hood rats really.

I've never seen as much random mindless vandalism as I did as a kid growing up in the lily white suburbs. Even as a cop in ghetto for 18 years I've never seen anything even close.

I would do a PR to CYA in case at a later date you stumble upon the miscreants and something happens.

It's a word I use when it fits.

ETA: and yes, it could be the lilly white upper middle class trash who lives around here. They are trash because they have no morals and their kids are useless slugs living off their parents.

In my neighborhood we have some very diverse scum.

However, the PoPo here have caught all types over the last few years breaking into cars and vandalizing stuff.

That's nothing, my ONE WEEK OLD f-150 had its windshield, drivers side window, and rear window busted by three assholes with a bat. They were caught and a after more than a year of going to court for damages, I have recieved one check for $152.

Calling the po-po is a complete waste of time unless you just need a report for you ins company. Otherwise just fix the mirror yourself.

In Tulsa, they won't even send out an officer to take the report. You'll be referred to their website to complete and print the TRACIS report.

I agree but my 320K house is now worth about 250.

ETA: It was never "worth" 320 in my opinion but I held out for a month and got them down to 289. I knew I had them w (4 years ago) as she had a new job to get to and he was an idiot.
