  •  my neighbor will be one of these vigilantes in (6+ / 0-)

    the near future, i'll guarantee it.
     this piece of crap is hardcore reich wing that drinks up every drop of GOP infused Kool Aid that trickles his way, a true nut case.
     directly behind our houses is a huge wooded lot that of course kids are attracted to. back in '04 there was a problem with a couple of teenagers on ATV's ripping up the place but that was very short lived. 15 boxes of well placed roofing nails provided more destroyed tires than they could afford and they quickly went away.
     about 2 years went by totally uneventful other than the occasional kid "exploring" or whatever and a few lovers who found the place a good make-out spot. big deal. i have no problem with any of that.
      not Mr. Gooper. he would stop anyone passing his house and demand that we call the cops on ANYONE that dares enter the woods- his logic was that ANYONE in those woods was up to no good. he got ignored.
     next came his claim of our neighborhood being vandalized and thefts occuring due to the "minorities" that found our little known area and were now hellbent on continuing their pattern of thefts, next it would be burglaries, rape and murders. right here. worry your asses off 'cause i sit up all night and watch it, it's always those damn minorities doing the shit, believe me. in our neighborhood. be scared, be very scared...
     we fell out at that point, never were cool or anything like that but i'd at least acknowledge his dumb ass- not after his little "minorities are destroying our neighborhood" spiel.
     the guy looked up the property owners name and got permission to act as his "manager" of said property. immediately "no tresspassing" signs went up all over the damn place and he started what has been this unrelenting pattern of confrontation on anyone daring to step foot on said property.
      he has the cops out on average at least once a week, and they, being his buddies and pals, show up with 6-8 cars each time over his calls about "trespassers". and no, i am not exagerating.
      a couple of months ago he threatened to kill a WWII diabled vet who had the misfortune of running into this monster. i witnessed the verbal assault and called 911. the cops did nothing. it was their buddy and pal, why would they? if that were me they'd call it assault on the elderly and assault on a disabled person. they are both felonies in Fla.
     a week later my next door neighbor was fixing his fence that seperates his yard from this property, Mr. Asshole came flying down demanding he not step foot on the other side of his fence-my next door neighbor is one of those scarey brown people that Mr. Nazi rails about, go figure...
     a kid walking his dog back there about 10 days ago was confronted by this idiot- armed. for walking his dog.
     i called 911.
     but that is their buddy and pal, he has every right to flash guns at kids trespassing i was told, "as long as he does not point it in a threatening manner or indicate he will use it". well duh, why would he have it?
     i am sick of this asshole and the cops who kiss his ass. i called the property owner and told him what is going on but he seems to think it is no big deal. i looked up the property itself and found out that it has an easement that allows use of his property to gain access to an ajoining property through which the property in question is the only access. i called that property owner and got permission to gain access any time i desire.
     the problem is Mr. Asshole is scared of me. he bullies on anyone smaller than his big ass but my ass is much much bigger than he is, 6'9" and 250- he won't say shit to me. i walk my dogs back there daily now, call it crazy but i really want his dumb ass to come confront me like he does these other folks. i carry a voice activated recorder and have a video camera zoomed in on the area directly behind his house...
     he is seriously deranged. i have heard enough come out of his mouth to realize just what a threat he poses and i know that here in the near future something is going to happen, being the militant reich winger type that he is i suspect it will happen the day one of his much hated "minorities" make the mistake of going on said property. he does no scare me though, i know he's nothing but a goddamn coward.
     i have contacted the police, sheriffs dept, FDLE and even the Florida dept of Wildlife (regarding his shooting wild turkey from his back porch, yes, i am serious!) to no avail.
     if he doesn't go postal on someone on this property i am willing to bet he does go postal somewhere, matter of fact i'll bet money on it.

    •  Sounds like my neighbor's neighbor (3+ / 0-)

      Your neighbor is much scarier than my neighbor's neighbor but they still have  the same basic attitude and sense of entitlement. This nut, Ira, has lived on our street since he was born. Some of the surrounding homes, including mine, were built around a decade ago. So my neighbors and I are basically some kind of Foreign OTHER and Ira is fighting a noble battle to rid the neighborhood of people like us so that he returns to the halcyon days of yesteryear.

      Yada, Yada, Yada. My neighbor Jim has been threatened by Ira too many times to mention. Jim even went out and purchased a security camera at my wife's suggestion and he recorded Ira and his wife assaulting Jim by spraying his hose at him when he came near the property line. So Jim called the cops, who seemed put off that they were asked to intervene. Excuse me, isn't that their job. Basically, they didn't want to intervene so I went up to the officer in charge and said that the police were making Ira more brazen because they would not enforce the law and so there were no consequences for the behavior. I told the officer in charge that if they continued to blow this off, it will end in tragedy with either Jim getting so frustrated that he feels forced to take matters into his own hands or Ira will kill him because the police have done nothing.

        ... in cases like this. It's something about their personalities and political views, I think. Both vigilante types (or ANY kind of rightwinger) and most cops have a pretty frightening view of the world... a view that people like you and I don't share.

    •  Wow. I hope you get the chance to testify... (1+ / 0-)

      ... against the scumbag in court someday. Or I guess I shouldn't say that, since that'll probably mean he's killed someone. But anyway, if he ever IS brought up on charges for something, I'd go into court and demand a change of venue. Yes, a normal citizen can do that, even if not directly involved in the case. It sure sounds like there'll NEED to be a change of venue, considering what you've said about his cop buddies and all. If not, he'll walk no matter what evidence (video, etc.) you have against the scumbag.
