Maybe I Knew...

So I started a discussion earlier about bad things happening and expecting it... well here it goes... The guy we put in jail a ways back Danny is getting out of jail tomorrow!! His brother did it again....got him out. Dannys son came to my house today to warn me that his fathers getting out of jail tomorrow and Danny told him he is seeking revenge on us!!! His son cannot stand him either (I wonder why)...Dannys son told me to be careful and keep our doors locked. So now my husband and I are very fearful. My husband has to work so it will just be me and the kids home. My husbands so worried about leaving us tomorrow. My husband told me I need to shoot him if he gets in our house, my husband knows my fear of guns. Which is why he practically begged me to shoot him if he comes in to protect me and the kids. I will not let anything happen to our kids, fear or not! So that's my bad news that I figured was coming...So worried for tomorrow. My hubby said forget about staying in this neighborhood, so we will be moving as soon as we can afford to...

Oh my goodness, I so hope he doesn't show up tomorrow. I know how nervous and afraid you are but as other have said when it comes to protecting your own your instincts and adrenaline will start running in high power. Just stay safe please, and I hope you guys can find something affordable in the near future.

You are a lot more stronger than you think. You won't panic, you'll protect those children like a mother lion would protect her cubs.

I hope he doesn't show up either but it doesn't surprise me, this guys seriously crazy! He is not scared to do anything because he knows he can get away with it. I really hope my instincts kick in. I'm worried that I will panic first before protecting us. I hope I'm stronger than I think I am...

It is really unsafe for you to be staying there. Why not call the cops and have them warned about what this Danny is planning? Maybe they'd catch him again and send him back to jail. I think you can ask him not to be around you atleast 50 meters away. Give him a restaining order.

Yes but we have no where else to go and no money... I did call the police so they could be on the look out. We have an order of protection on him already, the thing with danny is he's not worried about jail because he knows his brother will bail him out every time!

Then just be in constant communication with the police. If this Danny makes another trouble, he should then be rotting in jail. And he won't be able to be bailed out by his brother. Keep safe!

I dont know how you and your family could continue staying in that place when there is this lunatic on the loose. He should not be released from the prison if he is a threat to the public. I think you hsve the right to shoot but not to kill if he trespasses your compound.

We don't have a choice. We have no money to move right now... My husband is making $300 a week at work, that is ALL of our income. Not enough as it is! Oh I will not be killing him but I will shoot to get him down and so he cannot hurt us.

that is terrible. i would be mad that i had to even be in that position. he gets to go off the work tomorrow, while you get to sit home and wait for him. next, you either have to risk your life or your freedom to protect your kids. that's a hard one. i hope you guys stay safe and i hope this problem goes away soon.

Yeah we are, and that is why were moving as soon as we can because I don't want to have to live in fear and neither does my husband... We should not have to. He should not be allowed out of jail at all! He has way too long of a rap sheet to be able to get out so easily!! It ticks me off. I hope he goes away for life one of these days...

When it comes to protecting your children LMB, you'd be surprised at what you can do. I would let the police know what was said to you to begin with. You NEED to do this ASAP. Tell them you would like to be checked on all night and for a few days. They can send a cruiser on and off all night and all day. Keep your doors and windows completely locked and of course, which I know you know, don't open to anyone. Do you have any neighbors that can be on the lookout for you at all? This would help too. Your husband will be home at night, correct?

I did call them to let them know, I just hope they take it seriously. Its hard to tell over the phone if they took it serious or not... Oh I definitely know not to open the door for anyone and I am going to be very careful and on guard. I know if he comes in my house I will react, I just hope I react the right way and don't panic... My neighbor across the street is awesome and I know he will watch out for me.

How far is the police station from your house?..curious. If you see him at your doorstop or coming up to the door..call them immediately. Good to know about your neighbor across the street. You did let him know about all this right?

Oh, I hope nothing has happened! I don't like this business about people seeking revenge for putting him in his rightful place (jail). I hope that you're all OK. And I hope that if it comes to that, you'll find the courage to do everything to protect your family.

Nothing has happened yet but he just got home a little while ago. So, tomorrow is the day I have to worry. Hopefully he won't come here at all, I just put nothing past this guy-he is seriously crazy! I know no one will get to my kids unless they kill me first, I will do whatever I have to do.

Do you have a basement in your house? Is it useable? If so I would go there if I saw anything unusual or heard anything. You need to have some kind of a safety plan. I had not thought this way at all, but my daughter mentioned last year that she saw something strange happening out her front window. . . I think police with someone, do not remember now, but anyway, she took the kiddos to the basement, but she has a family room down there. Anyway, stay away from windows.

We don't have a basement, wish we did. In the South most people do not have basements, at least in NC they don't have a lot of them... We will stay away from windows and be as careful as we possibly can. It's so unfair that we have to be afraid because of this psycho!

Well, that's not good. Is there someone in the police department you can call and relate this to? They probably will tell you they can't do anything until something happens, but they might send a patrol car past your house a couple times. You may want to keep your curtains closed, too. Take care.

I called and let them know, I just hope they took it seriously... You never know, some days they do their job and some days they don't. Hopefully tomorrow will be a day that they actually DO their job!

As a victim of a prior crime, you do have rights and there is no reason at all that you can't call the police in your area and ask for extra patrol around your home. Now this might or might not be enough, but it something that might give you a little bit more piece of mind. Then of course you should be ready to defend yourself if it is at all possible. Of course make sure to keep your doors and windows shut and just have faith. I really do think that everything will be okay overall.

I'm with Kash on this. You will do what you have to do to protect your family. If he comes to your doorstep call 911. Please keep us in the loop. I'm worried about you. You don't need this kind of stress in your life. I pray he doesn't bother you.

That one that you had shared is scary LMB! I will not have a peace of mind living with that neighbor. I hope you'll be able to move out as soon as you can. We are planning to move out of our business place too because of the new caretaker that is managing this place. He is not a professional in dealing things like the deposits and the scheduled monthly rental. He seems to be here everyday to ask money.it is okay if he will buy it for food but he ask for advance rent even in small amount just to buy liquor. I feel irritable in the afternoon whenever he drops by here.

It is scary. I am so hoping that his son was wrong, I really am. This guy is NOT scared to go to jail because his brother always bails him out every time! I don't blame you for wanting out either. As soon as we can afford to get out we will be too.

Be brave , be very brave . No one whom you can depend now but yourself only ! Fight fear , face fear , face that man . Call the police and face that man , for all i know no one is above the law. Don't be afraid as long as you doing the right thing then the law sided with you. If you will living in fear then what will happen ? All days and year of your life it will be like that ? You will close door and windows ? No way ! Stand and fight , show to this man that you are not afraid of him. He will keep on taking advantage of you if you don't show how to fight. Remember no one is above the law and we are not in the time where Barbarians rules. We are mandated by laws. Give to this man what is due to him . PROTECT YOURSELF because neighbor can't do that for you , nor friends but only yourself. I hope this man will be given what is due for him so everybody will be at peace.

Hi lovingmybabies, i am so sorry to hear the horrible news about the guy getting out of jail and trying to take revenge out on you and your family, only advice I can give is be safe keep doors lock and then call the police let them know what is going on, and pray, and just try to do what ever needs to be done to be safe because know one deserves to be fearful of another human being, that's not right at all.

Thank you. We will be as safe as possible. I know we should not have to be scared to live here, that is not fair to us at all.
