most of you know about my auful neighbours who don't take responsibility for their own actions. well they got evicted. they haven't paid rent or hydro since they moved in. they got evicted and of course they are taking it out on me because i made a noise complaint like 4 months ago. since then everything is my fault appearently. anyway last night they came by and wrecked my stuff in the back yard. the neighbour called the cops and then so did i. the neighbour heard them oustide making threats that they were going to kick my head in and put sugar in my gas tank. i told the cops all this. tonight i was sitting at the neighbours house outside and 3 guys came to my door. then they asked us who lives there, they were looking for a girl and wanted her name. i said to them who are you i'm not giving out her name if you don't tell me who you are. they said they can't say it's business they have to deal with. i'm really worried they were here to cause trouble to me. i'm really scared

That's scary. I really know where you are coming from, here. I had some problems with neighbours who used to live here. I even prevented one of them from being murdered!!! Neighbours can be scary people when they don't take proper responsibility. Now I have good neighbours!

I would report it to the police, and I would not stay at home. It does sound a bit strange. I would not stay there alone.

I hope everything goes okay.The best thing to do is get a restraining order for the neighbours and get a videotape recorder. So if they do come back and do something , you will have it on tape.And with the restraining order, the cops will know that they have threaten you before so if they do come back, there will mean more jail time. Take care.

I hope that all goes well for you. You seem like a really good person, and hopefully no one will believe your bad neighbors. Good luck with everything.

What a bad experience. My heart goes with you on this... Bad neighbors cant any worse than that, sending a bloody beating-crew. Hope you get this dealt with in a manner where it wont hurt you.

Wow poppoppop111, I thought that nightmare was over. What did the police say when you told them all this? That is scary and if the other neighbors heard it, maybe you can all go and make a complaint and have these people removed. You did say they were evicted, why are they still there?

I would try to make sure your house is really secure hun, security lights and possibly an alarm. I would also see if you can get an injunction against them and make sure the Police are fully aware that you may well be in danger from these morons. I hope everything turns out ok hun

Hopefully they are all talk and no action, but you can't risk it..If you have friends or family I would go to them until these people are for sure gone from that place...Do you have a male friend that could stay with you? Not sure what to suggest other than I am worried for you and your daughters safety..I am surprised the cops haven't done more...My best advice would be to find a safe place....

I feel your pain. I have the neighbors from Hell as well, and I was told that they were kicked out, but I have not seen them move out yet. These people have caused so many problems. Immigration, two different police departments, and other strange people have been to their house and my family has had to put in a security system for fear that we the next door neighbors might do something stupid.

Oh my gosh! I'd be scared too! You really need to get out of there and find a new place to live for it's not safe there anymore and especially if you have a four year old little girl! Nothing is worth her life OR yours! Call the cops and let them know what just happened and tomorrow get out of that place and find another and in the meantime, go stay with friends or family.... somebody and anywhere but not there! You have me worried about you now... Please keep us updated. I will pray for yours and your daughters safety!

My only suggestion would be to stay with family or something until things settle down. Is there anything the police can do? **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Hey what you r going thru is really scary. But my advice to u would be to go to the cops again. Take it higher. They r trying to threaten you your wonderful daughter's wellbeing.I guess you need to speak to a higher authority if the cops are not helpful. Also try tp keep your daghter always in your sight when she is at home. Never know when these neighbours might do anything. Such nasty neighbours!i hope everything gets sorted out soon for you. Tkar care, n educate your child not to talk to strangers when you leave her at schol, until u pick her up.
