    Okay I live in a horrible area where young chavs influenced by older chavs to continiously thow snowballs at our house, every single year, there was even the point where they smashed our windows and the police could not do anything about it just because of lack of evidence.

    We are a chinese family, i have my single mum with 4 kids age 8-20 including me but as the oldest, i could nothing but sit inside unless it gets really bad, go out shout at them and then they continue to thow anyway. In the past constantly ringing the police but again they could do nothing about it.

    As you can see I am dreading this year so much

    so any advice?

    plus anyone in similar situation?

    I personally wish i could have one of those canon that could shoot ballons filled with bile. and std

    Squirt them with a hosepipe. Wet clothes + snow = not fun.

    Do you have christmas decorations up? As they may be targetting yours if there is no fancy lights like others.
    Could simply be they are chavy [email protected], but this could be a possibility.

    Set up a camera, not outside your house of course (they'll try and break it), but inside your house that has a view of where the chavs are.

    That = Evidence.

    Hopefully it'll be sorted? The police doesn't handle with things as petty as chavs, but the housing estate/council services do. =)

    If the snowball is bulky enough and has a thick core of ice, then it probably can smash through a window.

    we had those single frame windows made out of would and glass, so imagine 10 chavs and lots of snowballs target one single living room window, as you you the more you pat the snowball into shape they more it hardens.

    Yeah I'm liking the hosepipe idea. Although they'll probably start throwing bricks next time.

    Snowballs with stones in them. A chav threw one at my friend last year and she had to go to hospital and was almost blinded.

    Firstly, I really hate the use of the word 'chav'. It's stupidly derogatory.
    Secondly, if you do the camera idea you may need to put up signs saying that anyone near the property is on CCTV.
    Thirdly, is there anything that makes your house different?
    And fourthly, personally I'd be inclined to do the hosepipe thing. But be warned, that may simply escalate things.

    Seriously, don't underestimate what snowballs can do.


    If they could make a snowball that's huge and compact (Rolled on the floor), it could easily shatter a window. Also, there's a strong possibility that these chavs put dirt and things inside the snow ball, making it more heavier and stronger.

    ... I'm actually chinese o.O?

    And I live in London - a poor area, with quite a lot of stabbings and chavs, and fireworks has been shot at my house before.

    Not at all funny.
