Some drunk neighbor thought he could make trouble with me when I was stone cold sober...first time in 10 years here that I had to call the police...

He did brandish a stick,

Threatened me verbally,

Terrorist threats, what a dick…


The state police called,

Away I wanted him hauled,

Has to actually hit me, I was appalled…


Still I made the report,

If someday we go to court,

At least with the report,

Any future trouble we can thwart…

Hard for me to comment on this one, except to say you did the right thing in phoning the police.

It's always best to file the report and have it on's a sorry justice system (here in Canada too) when the victim must actually be struck in order for the police to step in!!! No one should be permitted to threaten another!!!! No matter what!

At least you took care of it, especially for any future issues that could arise from it. Glad you are safe and well. Don't you get sooooo tired of people sometimes?

In Spirit,

Good on you, Ed. This kinda thing has to be nipped in the bud, otherwise peeps can think they can try it on again when their bars have been rattled. It's like kids without boundaries... they will just keep on pushing until something gives... Stay safe and in control! xx

Is a threat not considered an assault in Jersey, strange. Take care my friend, bless ya!

Here in Florida, we have a gun law they call "Stand your ground" and if I'm not mistaken, we are the only state with one anything like it. It's been receiving a lot of notice lately, but it's a law that allows you to defend yourself when you are threatened. Sounds like Jersey could use something similar. Dick

Always make the report. I had a similar situation a few years back with a violent drunkard who threatened to kill one of my dogs. He was never arrested, but some wonderful police officers started hanging around his home in their squad car. He didn't want to be caught drunk-driving, so he moved away.

No matter where you are, the justice system absolutely stinks!

Crazy world we live in today. Stay safe, my friend and God bless.

So if he comes in the middle of the night and bashes your head in, wonder if the State Police will say, "He ought to have done that the first time and we'd took him in?" Idiots.
