Vandal Scratches Handicapped Vet’s Car

Two Sunday ago Kurt and his wife went to the Chili’s Restaurant in Hayden, parked in a handicapped spot and walked inside to eat. An hour later they came out to find Kurt’s car had a nice scratch across the hood. Then he saw the note, tucked under his windshield wipers. “[It] said that they thought I was too mobile to be issued a handicapped placard and that I should be ashamed of myself.” “I read the note and that made me mad,” he said. The Coeur d’Alene Police have the note and is now investigating the vandalism done to Kurt’s car/McKay Allen, KXLY. More here (including video).

Question: Rather than vandalize a handicapped veterans vehicle, what should the creep behind this crime have done?
