I would like to start by saying I may very well have the worst neighbors in the world! That being said, let's get into why I am feeling this way. Let's begin with the fact that there are 7 adults in the home. Only 1 is gainfully employed. Three of them are on the adult son's "payroll" as he is handicapped. There are also three foster/adopted children in the home. Two of the adult males are ex-convicts! This fact of course has been hidden from the CPS workers that do the home visits/studies. It is disgusting to hear the mother of a handicapped child complain about "not getting paid" when he is ill and in the hospital. I feel guilty every time I see her "swat"(her words) the children. The children are left unsupervised at times as well. I now know that all of the things discussed would have prevented these children from being placed there. I am in great delima as to what if anything should be done. I have to live next to these ppl. I know what I know because I ignorantly befriended my neighbors. And all of this doesn't even touch on the unleashed animals they allow to run the streets...or the fact that the view from my window appears very much like a used car lot! Thanks for listening and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
