About 5 years ago one of my neighbors sold a small piece of his property to his stepson who built a small house on it, no big problems other than their dogs getting into my compost/scrap pile on occasion but I fixed that problem with a hot wire run off my electrical feed. Even the dumbest of animals can learn if the consequences of not learning are severe enough but that's not the problem.

The stepson divorced, moved out and remarried and several renters have cycled through until last month, he got desperate and sold the house, CHEAP.

And then the rif-raf moved in, within a month the place looks like "Sanford and Son" moved in, the kids are the most destructive little varmits I've ever seen - and little thieves too.

They've been shooting the grandson with air-soft guns, destroying(literally) everything that they touch.........

Finally a few days ago, I have a 20 gallon bin I've been mixing vinegar and water in to try to get a handle on blight the weather has been promoting in the garden, I found a hole shot through it.

I initially thought it was from one of the kids pellet guns but I now think it was with a 22. I approached the "guardian" of the kids and she immediately started ranting "call the sheriff" which I did.

Bottom line, camera's are going up and if I suddenly disappear from the face of the earth, I'm either in jail for killing one of those little SOB's or in the morgue for one reason or another.

I do think it's time to start looking for a place thats really out in the middle of nowhere. If that does happen I'm going to sell this property to a friend who's been wanting to start raising hogs. I only have two acres but you can raise a lot of hogs and produce a lot of stink on a piece of land that size.

That sucks. The worst part of living in society is living in society. One of my officers bought a nice house in a new development. The owner of the house across the street lost his job and they sold out to a rental agency who turned it into a 5 bedroom college party house. He had to sell his place at a loss just to escape the madness. His patrol car was vandalized more in 9 months than every other car in the fleet that year. I hope the Sheriff steps in. You may also want to call child protection services (or whatever they are called where you live) and report that kids are playing with guns. Let liberalism work FOR you for a change.

My parents have neighbors from hell. My mom has a mantra for dealing with them...

"A solid court case takes years to build."

Also look into the laws in your area/state. In California it is a crime to "harass" anyone over the age of 65. My dad turned 65 this past January and my mom will turn 65 next October (2016). I don't think you are that old so you may have to wait another 20+ years. ;)

When I say the neighbors are from hell I do mean it.

They have spot lights that are directed into my parents windows, cameras aimed in windows as well, honk the car horns (via remote) when the house lights are turned off when my parents go to bed, whistling to entice Buddy to bark, and their kids draw offensive pictures on the sidewalk in front of my parents' house in sidewalk chalk. They even claimed my dad is a peeping tom looking in their kids' bedroom window when he is working in the yard. The window is on the second floor and has no curtains or window coverings. You'd have to look in the window from the second floor windows in the house across the street!

Gee, davarm, that sure sucks. I hope you get something done about it before any of you get hurt, especially your little grandson. The stress alone can destroy your health. :( Hang in there.

Those new neighbors seem to have lost a dog and 2 cats in the last few weeks.:D

Doubt if they are missing them yet! Three critters down, Lord only knows how many are left.

Well, this little story took another turn today, I turned the heat up a notch and stirred the pot a little.

Over the last few days I've lost 4 hens to dogs, I know it's dogs because they killed them and left them lay, not eaten or chewed up.

Last week the nest of my sitting hen was torn apart, no eggs eaten, the nest was just torn apart and eggs scattered.

I'd finally had all I could take and sat out from the crack of dawn until mid afternoon for the last 2 days waiting for the culprit and today around 2:30pm - Bingo, that house next door has one less dog and it was shot in their full view.

I called the sheriff immediately after I pulled the trigger the last time and since I'd been to the sheriff's office several times getting info on how to stay out of jail, I thought It'd just be an "OK so you had to shoot the mut" but not so......

That deputy did her best to intimidate me just about every way she could and the more she tried, the madder she got. I did all my homework on the subject and followed all the laws to the T but she still tried to make me feel like she was doing me a favor by not taking me to jail. She even tried to cite laws that had no relevance and she really got pissed when I told her they didn't apply and why. I always held our county sheriffs and deputies in the highest but that gal just knocked them down a notch

After I finished up with the sheriff, I went and picked up a 8 camera DVR and tacked up 3 of the cameras - ran out of time so the rest will have to wait until tomorrow.

Get all reports you have made against the neighbors. You'll need this when you take them to court when they do something big and stupid in retaliation.

funny how some crappy LEO s think that they need to cause grief for people who are looking after their own property, when they should be informing the offending animals owner that they should learn to control their "pets" or charging them with some kind of indirect trespass or something.

When the deputy came after I shot the dog, I learned that the visits I made to the sheriff's office to complain and "get info" were "off the record", no record made of the visits or what was discussed.

That really frosted me over, the reason I went in person was so that it would be recorded............

Just have to pick up from here and move forward, I KNOW it will keep going and escalate at some point, I'm sure those people have "High Friends in Low Places" so I'm saving the video and will make sure that any future communications with the sheriff's office will be "On The Record"(and that the guns are cleaned and loaded).

On another note, my middle daughter who just left last week to go back to her ship(Navy) told me that if/when they get kicked out of that place, she is going to buy it to keep the Riff-Raff out. The owner is a fairly nice guy and he "Owner Financed" the sale so I'm going to talk to him and tell him that if he evicts them, he will have a buyer. I'm pretty sure she will have to spend thousands to just clean the place up and make it fit to live in if she does buy it though.

If your daughter wants to rent it out K and I are looking to get the hell out of California. I'd offer to buy but if your daughter wants it then go for it!

K is aiming for his contractors license when we move.

Hey, I am retired, have a truck, camping gear, weapons, ammo, food, and the WILL to load up that truck with all of my gear and do some camping/force multiplying in a certain North Central Texas area, if a certain resident of that North Central Texas area felt the need for some extra help.

I think Dave needs to host a QT camp out at his place when these asshats try to take it to the next level. I volunteer.

Step [1]
Find a greedy ambulance chaser lawyer.

Step [2]
File multiple lawsuits upon every responsible party for every conceivable offense.

Step [3]
File pointless leans against the property of the main pain.

Step [4]
Using cash cards only, bought at any convenience store anywhere anonymously with cash, subscribe to every gay porn, borderline pedophilia, drug using, anti everything rag you can find and have it crammed in THEIR mailbox by the U.S mail, using THEIR address, ask NAMBLA, HCI, and any other left wing perverted organization for an information packet, again crammed in their mailbox by the US mail service. Using a label maker, make a BUNCH of address labels, then attach them to porn magazines and subversive literature and leave them in places they can be found easily, like outside their work place, inside their church, on the sidewalk outside their home etc...Have 100 business cards printed in their name + address for an "escort service" and dump them around at the local bars.

THE SYSTEM [as usual] HAS FAILED. time to go nuclear.

I didn't even get into spoofing their I.P with a directional WiFi antenna and hanging out on ISIS websites or all the fun uses for dead animals and
feces, but we're still sort of civilized at this point. did you know a can of sardines dumped into a heating vent can drive someone from their home
or WRECK their car? the smell NEVER gets out of the furniture either. and ah yes, the thousands of flies... If one were to do this in the dead of summer
and wait a few days, then complain to the cops about the stench...all sorts of mayhem can follow! wear gloves at all times!
