In the last two weeks, overnight, my truck's tires have been vandalized three times. In the first two instances, it is unclear if air was just let out or if actual slow leak damage was done. However, the third time my front tire went flat the repair shop found a hole in the sidewall that could only be deliberate.

I have done my due diligence and filed a police report. Given that no one else's vehicle on our street has received the same treatment, targeting seems likely. That makes the police decide to pay more attention. They will be making nighttime drive-bys as available.

At first I was really upset. I don't know of anyone who hates me enough to do something like this. As far as I know, I don't have any enemies. I do know I've never done anything to anyone to deserve this sort of malicious violence. Spending time and emotional energy focusing on why me, if this has been deliberate, is just giving the jerk(s) who did it what they want. If it was random hooliganism, I really am wasting my time. Instead, I am taking steps to monitor my vehicle at night. Also, I am not so good and forgiving a person that I don't take comfort in the knowledge that whoever did this will get theirs back, in spades.

I am so sorry to hear that.

I had my tires slashed once deliberately, and that was bad enough. I knew who did it, knew why, but wasn't able to get anyone to do anything.

Good for you for getting the cops in this. It's NOT O.K.

That really sucks. I hope the cops can do something!

Otherwise, the obvious question is whether there's anything about the truck that's different from other vehicles to make it singled out? Bumper stickers? (I know I always feel like ramming cars with "Life Is Good" stickers.) Something hanging from the rearview mirror? Does it look out of place on the street? Or could it be mistaken for someone else's? How long have you had it there? To me truck=guy, and maybe it's very much not you they're after.
