    Re: Man keys luxury cars at dealership - what is wrong with people?

    Well - a guy with nothing to loose it seems. Im sure he was either high and/or drunk - but that doesn't dismiss the damage. The company will be fine - insured im sure..... the man will not be caught, remembers nothing Im sure. If it is a man that is disgruntled and knew what he was doing, I hope he is caught and spends the equivalent time it takes to get each vehicle back to like new condition AND some in the correction system. With that said, I feel that the dealership will make money for the issue and will come ahead ten fold, thats what they do best - probably an inside job lol.

    Norris is a used car dealer here, and tbh, they're kind of assholes in my experience. They specialize in "high end" cars that they sell at prices that are at times, way too expensive. I wouldn't be surprised if they pissed this guy off previously. Still a terrible thing though..

    I wonder if dealerships have some kind of insurance that cover things like this?

    Bad Karma headed his way. Over $500,000.00 in damage and a $2500.00 reward?

    After looking at the video I have decided to scrap all my cameras and upgrade to 1080P
    And more of them. So that I have both high view and straight on shots of the faces.
    That camera, and most others I have seen posted are nearly useless to identify someone.

    That's just wonton destruction, ugh, I HATE that... but the math doesn't add up.

    “What’s disgusting about some of these high lines is, of course, the cost to fix them,” he said. “Some of these will cost us over $10,000 to repaint the car much less looking at the diminished value and now we have a bad Carfax.”
    12 cars, $10,000 each to fix = $120,000. Nowhere near $500,000

    I'm glad someone else besides me caught this and now the dealer should be charged with insurance fraud....Maybe they can share the same cell....
