When you say he was expected to survive, did you mean that he didn't.

"we tell them dont confront them" Maybe if the dam police could get ANYWHERE in this town within of your 911 call to them THEY could get this under control.
I made two phone calls last week, regarding gang activity in my once NICE neighborhood, and it took them 20 mins each time, after I DID confront them, one came into my yard and shoved me< I am a 46 year old WOMAN 5'3 inches tall" >police did NOTHING, they pass the buck to you to call a detective, 4 calls later I get the "detective jen--n" who said "it may take a couple WEEKs before we get to it!''
Now I keep a "big max" crowbar by my front door, and learned to swing it pretty dam good.
Let them try it again.
Born here down the street, leaving as soon as houses go up - going to sell for what I owe, and screw my whole neighborhoods property value, my last revenge.

ps...the cop said "do you know what GANG they are in"?, I said"how the f*** would I know that??, IM WHITE and dont even KNOW someone who has been in jail.This place will be so central in 5 years.Whats the kicker is, YOU are not even hearing the half of it , in the news or tv, ask the police, they will tell you about the asian hookers parked in front of your house at night, and the "kilos" of drugs they are taking off these gang bangers.
The dont care how long YOU have lived here, or that ALL your neighbors are having the same problems with the same family, they just stick to there little pre written script, when they finally do get to your house after you call screaming"the guy is out IN my yard parked in my driveway saying hes going to hurt us.
I dont know about you, but a gun in soon in my picture here and a very nasty large dog. I spent 700.00+ on security cameras, in a neighborhood I used to leave the door open so my neighbor could use my oven...
Anyone wanting the number of the lame investagator who will do nothing about any of this I was referred to is
714-585*, good luck getting a hold of anyone there,you will get voice mail for a week, maybe check the donut shop or starbucks...
