    Smash our mailbox? I don't think so

    HATLEY, Wis. - Call this family the mailbox vigilantes. Fed up that their mailbox was smashed four times in two weeks, Greg Fisher and his son set up a middle-of-the-night stakeout to catch the vandals — and it worked. Four teens were caught after a high speed chase.

    "We only did this because we felt very violated and targeted by whoever was doing it," said Greg's wife, Kim Fisher......

    They used to drive around our neighborhood & smash them with baseball bats as they drove by.
    We finally bought a cheep replacement box, set it on it's end & filled the mofo to the top with concrete. It was hit only once after that & never again.

    I wish I could have witnessed that last hit. It must have stung an auwful lot.

    You just have to be careful not to get caught because tampering with a mailbox is a Federal Offense. I know of someone who got ratted out and ended up with a visit from an agency you don't want to get a visit from.

    My buddies did this when we were younger, now that I look back at it, it was stupid. I would be pissed if this happened to my mailbox!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Got in trouble for doing it when I was younger as well.

    Coming from a small town, it wasn't hard to figure out who did it.
    We (4 of us) had to go around and repair every mailbox we ruined.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Smash our mailbox? I don't think so

    Once when we were younger we went mailbox "tackling" instead.
    Anybody can smash a box down with a bat.
    It takes some skill and precision to run into it at full speed and rip the whole thing to the ground...usually pole included.

    ;D

    I felt so guilty the next morning after the alcohol wore off and I had to drive through that neighborhood to get to a destination.
    Seeing all the people out there repairing the previous night's carnage was really tough to swallow.
    Of course we didn't do anything about it so I still feel like a douche bag, but hey... Hopefully in 15 years I wont remember some of the stupid shit that was done.

    Yeah, my buddies and I never got caught, we lived in too big of a city. We probably weren't even the only ones doing it those nights!
