So again my neighbors are causing a ruckus the other night with the woman screaming to stop being beaten by her boyfriend/husband...who cares..She calls for help every time. Yet once the cops get there it is "her fault" and she does not want to press charges. I went over the other night and was about to kick in the door as I heard the beating and banging on the door was getting me nowhere. I do this WAY to much with them. The guy never comes anywhere I can see him when the cops arrive and hides away like the tough guy he is. Sadly I live 5 houses down. Every house in between has grown men on their porch listening and watching the house. Doing NOTHING! What kind of man hears a woman scream and does nothing. It may be repetitive but I worry he will kill her someday and there IS a kid in that house. So this last time the cops came right when I had enough and was stopped by my wife right about when my foot was going to smash the door. Same old cop walking up. Same old story...this time I hung around and made sure things went OK. I asked my wife to video tape the cop talking as if "there is nothing they can do" they should have no issue with that. Cop was pissed and wife left. They brought the guy out in cuffs and he said to me "So you need to cops to mess with me".....This threw me back a bit as he KNOWS I was banging on the door and have many times on my own...he hides. Keep in mind he is a wife beater at about 140lbs. "tough guy". When he said that I simply said "the law is I cannot break down your door and do what I would like to do" Response "What would you like to do" My response "Well with cops here I will just tell you that they are your savior at the moment. They are taking you away from me. It is not my wish but it is the law. If it was just you and I I have no doubt you would NEVER do it again...one way or another" He started screaming I was threatening him and the cop simply said "he just told you what the law prohibits him from doing. That is no threat". He went to jail for ONE night and is back. Wont make eye contact and here is the main issue. I AM MOVING in 3 weeks. What happens then? A bunch of "men" watch her get carried out in a bag??!! The law does nothing for those like this woman who believes he will change. I know it is her fault to stay but that does not make what he does ok. No charges pressed and no problems for him until next time. Bottom line...Am I justified if I know he is truly hurting her to break the door down and stop him? If not any ideas of what I can do? I am at a loss and concerned that nobody will do a thing when I am gone....If you took the time to read all this thanks..I know it is a long bit of drama. Which is why I am moving. And why I am worried to move.
