A big, fat, trailer-trash next-door neighbor has terrified and threatened my sister, who lives alone with her 10 year old daughter, and when the police were called, and arrived 20 minutes later, they suggested getting a Restraining Order. Big Help.
It has yet to be served, 5 days later, and calls have gotten no results, but plenty of excuses and just plain inaction.
This is inexcusable...the scum of the earth continue to get away with murder, and everything else they care to do!
No wonder people take matters into their own hands...no one else will protect us, even when that is their job!
It's a pathetic world, when the innocent and helpless have absolutely no recourse.
