Damn calling the cops. Most either don't know what to do or are scared to do anything because they work for pussy administrations that won't have their back (if/when a complaint arises). Punks like this only understand and respond to one thing: all out brutal nasty force. They fuck with you, you fuck them up!!! Remember, a bully only targets the weak.!!
i had a real bitch next door. whole block hated her. took years to get rid of her. we tried a lot of different things but i’ll tell u all what wound up working lol
DOG SHIT. Her bedroom window and back door ro her kitchen faced my driveway so I did a little dogshit collecting and piled it up as close to the window ans door as i could get but still on my driveway. I kept adding fresh stink logs to it and within amfew weeks the smell was unbearable. She called the cops on me a bunch of times but there’s nothing they can do. she even called the board of health and tried to say my home was unsanitary and needed to be condemned but that didn’t work either. Took a few momths but eventually she put her house up for sale and moved
I live next to a gaggle of trumptards. they are disgusting people. junk cars all over their yard, dogs in cages in the back yard, cars going in and out at all hours of the night, confederate flags everywhere , and the house is in disrepair. DIsgusting pigs
LOL The cops says " if we don't have a specific law violation, we can't do anything " SINCE WHEN , that is all the cops do everyday , to millions of people every single day, Let me see your ID, turn the camera off, open the door etc etc etc etc
In the old days, before lawsuits and restraining orders... these matters were settled quickly, man to man. Most of these "problem neighbors" are bullies who do it because they know they can get away with it. Come on my lawn and vandalize my car while I'm standing there with a baseball bat. Of course they won't do it. They'll wait until I'm asleep. It's just a shame that we have to waste so much time and money these days when in the olden times, enraged neighbors would take the guy out for a good thrashing, lesson learned.
She really is antagonizing him. Refuse to give him a response. I've had nasty neighbors. I ignore them. Then they just give up and go about their life. The Landscaper, I don't kiow. I think he is mentally ill.
Once again Another POS causing trouble and nobody doing anything about it. This would have been dealt with a long time ago in other neighborhoods. As a man, if you let another man treat you like a bitch and you do nothing then you deserve it. Recording something, calling the police, quitting your job or hiding in your house while another person destroys your property IS doing nothing.
yep you can tell he got some HUGE mental problems. Hes so lucky its in a area like that. Had he tried that shit were we used to live everyone would of beat his ass and made him pay taxes to get to his house lol
The lawyer says, what do my tax dollars say along w footage. Disorderly, Disturbing the Peace, C'mon. Lazy cops, potential lawsuits by lawyers that say , a drug addict and the illegal spraying of volatile chemicals is not a crime. ha. These cities need an overhaul like a majority of the country. Arrogance of our leaders is so shameful. Believe, if your were a politician or public servant and you were this neighbor, they would make your life a nightmare.
One way to fight back is to check your Home Owner Associations (HOA's) guidelines. Often, where the police can't do anything, the HOA will have rules about .. how clean the yard should be, how much noise people can make and when they can make it, people not picking up after their pets, etc... so, you may be able to record the neighbor breaking HOA rules and file grievance with the HOA. The HOA can slap big fines on someone... people only listen when you hit them in their pocket book. And while we often complain about HOA's, they can be a great help in dealing with assholes.
The problem with confronting problem neighbors face-to-face is that it just makes them realize they have all the power and don't have to do anything. Plus, it lets them know who has an issue with them, so they know who to target and bully. You go over to ask them politely to keep the noise down, get their dogs out of your yard, etc, etc.. they just go "or what? what are you going to do about it?" Nothing. You can't do anything about it. Then they get a power trip over realizing they have power over you, and escalate.
The advice of not calling the police is catch-22. If the police get called consistently, then they build up a log of bad behaviour that can then be used in a court of law to show some jackass was continually doing dumb shit for months or years. But, when you call the police, it lets the asshole know you're on to them. If you don't call the police, then the asshole will think they're getting away with stuff, and (like a kid thinking they're getting away with bullshit) it will lead them to escalate their behaviour. So, one way to deal with them is to just put up cameras secretly to record them.. and let them keep doing their bullshit. Don't react to them. They're looking for a reaction. And, like a kid, they will keep escalating until they get the reaction. So, they will eventually slip up and do something illegal.. like step on your property, damage your property, etc.. which is illegal. It's then just a gamble.. do you want to turn them in on the first petty crime they do, or do you want to wait for them to do something big.. which may damage your property severely or hurt you.
There's just a lot of PITA in dealing with a bad neighbor, because they start to realize they have all this power and you can't do anything about it. Parents have been dealing with an asshole neighbor for years, even went to court over it, and she's still a basket case. Her gimmick was that she was trying to harass people until they would confront her, then she'd call the cops and tell them HER neighbor was harassing HER and she'd sue. She was gunning for lawsuits. So, there may be more to a neighbor harassing you then you think. Don't play their game or do anything illegal, because that may be exactly what they want.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
