i would move. then i would save up for a house where my nearest neighbor is far enough away where i just get left alone.
Yep "on record" no need for anything further...Reason for not arresting neighbor was, "He had o have the intent to do harm when he pulled the gun". The case number was issued so that the district attorney could make any decisions. Since this is not the first time the neighbor has over reacted . I am glad that I got it on record.
There are people that actually seek and enjoy these conflicts and will intentionaly start them To get attention , the more they can escalate it drawing in his freinds and neighbors ect , The happier they are .unfortunately theres at least one in every nieborhood.AKA (crisses Junkie ) .Seeking a fair court outcome in the PNW after the court hears the dreaded 4 letter word ( GUNS ) .Is a fat chanceWell taken. I am pursuing this. As it will be sometime before I can move. I have already been gone on record in the past with the land lady and they have let him know to steer clear. I will make sure I bring that up for the record as well.
I'd go with buy him some beer, apologize for the misunderstanding, be ready to defend yourself at all times and move the f out. Having the right of way walking across the street doesnt stop the semi truck with no brakes.
1) "I survived living across the alley from the Los Vatos motorcycle gang by being extra nice to them and not complaining tooooo much. (Loud music and parties, coming and going all hours of the night, parking in front of my gate, etc.) It helped to have some weed to share."
Having spent some time among the socially alternative American V-Twin enthusiasts I can say they mostly don't regard non-bikers as even being part of their world. Citizens are peripheral acquaintances at most. The ones I knew didn't mess with their neighbors as a matter of practicality. Yeah, they usually like giggle bush.
2) "It's times like these where a long, awkward silence broken by a wet fart is called for. I bet that'd deescalate a lot."
Why wet? It wouldn't sound any better but would require attention to ones undies.
Well, the guy is buddies with the cops. He probably told the ones that showed up at the scene that he feared for his life because the OP had guns on him... that isn't brandishing. One can quibble over the details, but that is what the responding officers decided. I really doubt that complaining about it is going to change the end result.Exactly what i was wondering. You pull a gun on someone, that is brandishing at a minimum. I might even venture down to the prosecutors attorneys office and question why the police didn't do more to the guy. Heck, go talk to the police chief too.
Bullied and being forced to move out is BS. I agree that it is a rental and the safest thing to do, but still wrong especially when the guy pulls a gun on you and the cops do nothing.
