  1. A couple of years ago a very large rock was thrown through the rear windshield of a car parked in my driveway. Since then I have been aware that it seems to be a repeating occurrence that rocks are thrown through car windows and now house windows. I am wondering if this is some kind of test or haze that kids attempt as part of a gang ritual or the like? Have the police been investigating this angle. It seems too much of a coincidence that this happens over and over.
