Law enforcement: NOT on your side!

Hi all! Scary news today. We’ve been harassed by our neighbors dogs for a while now. The final blow came when said dogs trapped my 5 year old and me in my car until my husband came and scared them off.  Now I don’t know if you’ve ever been trapped somewhere with dogs circling you, watching you but it’s a terrifying experience.  Remember Cujo? We’ve called the police several times. The last cop that was here at our house told us next time the dogs are out to call the police again. Well today they were out and we called again. Like we were told to. The officer that came out walked up with an air about him that was annoyed. I’m sure he thought he should be out eating doughnuts and hitting on young girls and not wasting his time DOING HIS JOB.

When my husband and I explained what the situation was he said that’s not my problem call animal control. Things went downhill from there rapidly. My husband said you need to go deal with those dogs because the dogs being out not on a leash is breaking a law. The cop told my husband that since my husband knew all the laws and was a law enforcement officer that he should go handle the people. My hubby is not a cop, he just knows the laws like any good citizen who cares about his rights should.

Now, what you don’t know is that the neighbors house is a hangout for gang-bangers and society’s mistakes. It took 6 cop cars to arrest 1 teenager. Yeah, I want to go down there and talk to those people. My lily white ass would do a lot in getting them to obey the law.

Back to the story! Well said Jellyroll and my husband then began to argue more and I made my husband go inside. The cop then told me he wasn’t talking to me or my husband anymore and that we were basically on our own. I followed him to the end of our driveway literally saying please talk to me over and over again. He then got into his car and wouldn’t talk to me until I said for the 6th time I’m begging you to talk to me. He then proceeded to tell me that my husband was a know-it-all and that he thought very little of my husband. I tried to steer him away from the conversation about my husband several times and when I FINALLY did I told him my main concern in dealing with these neighbors was the fear of retaliation. Copper’s response was to say don’t you think they know it’s you already? Well they do now!

As I was outside begging the cop to talk to me the dogs came out and ran up to someone on the street. Well the cop then went over there but I’m positive it was only because i was outside at the time.  I came back inside my house and we call the pig’s Sargent and talked to him. The Sargent said flat out that we were not to go talk to these people and what the boy in blue did was wrong. He said that the office that came here and turned me into a nervous wreck was in the wrong. He claims that he will talk to him but I won’t be holding my breath.

My new concern is that we pissed this jackass off. Will we receive proper police protection now? I hope so, but again I’m not holding my breath. So if Mrwakeupcall and I disappear please remember this and call Fox News. Or maybe Nancy Grace, she’s a real bitch who loves busting chops.


I would also like to say that while in general I have issues with authority I am a law abiding citizen that pays her taxes. I also have respect for the badge and generally hold police officers in high regard. I DO NOT however have respect for those who abuse the badge. Especially those that have no problem taking a paycheck that we the people provide them but refuse to do their job unless it suits their mood.

  1. Here’s hoping you haven’t made any enemies in high places, and that Jellyroll gets his due. 😦

    Sorry, hon.

    MrWakeUpCall, nice job! Bravo!

  2. Well sugar if I have made enemies in high places it’s worth it. I will not be bullied by anyone, badge or not. Principles have to stand for something, right? We’ve decided that we are no longer just going to take the bullshit. This is America and I don’t have to.

  3. Their rights end where yours begin, and the fact that you can’t even go out in your own yard for fear of someone else’s dogs is an infringement on your rights.

    I am so worried about you guys! Is there like a newspaper help thing, like here they have something called, “What’s your problem?” to help folks who encounter situations where they can’t get the bureaucratic help they need. Mega hugs hon. I’m praying for you guys.

  4. Maybe you can get these dogs impounded.

  5. Stalky McBlogger — RIGHT ON. Go get ’em! 🙂

  6. Hi, Raga. I’ve got menacing dogs next door, too. When they get out they seem to respect my authority (especially when I’m holding a rake), but on their side of the fence they stand there and bark at us. My kids are scared of them, of course, and I think they could jump the fence if they wanted to, so I’m scared of them, too. I’ve had to get rid of all my animals because of the frenzy they whip up in those dogs. They’re nicer now that we don’t have cats.

    You go, girl.

  7. Hi Sherri! It’s really sad that people can’t enjoy their homes the way they want to because of disrespectful neighbors. I’m sorry you had to get rid of your animals and I’m even more sad that your kids are afraid. It’s not fair that the kids are punished because the owners care about themselves over all others.

    Like I tried to tell the cop yesterday, my main concern is the safety of my girls and like any good momma I put them above all others. I don’t want anything to happen to the dogs, just their owners, but that probably won’t be the case. I mean we have dogs so it’s not like I’m a dog hater, I just want my kids to be safe.

    I say we all put our pennies together and build some compound in the middle of nowhere and out pets AND kids can run around without fear. 🙂

    I’m glad you stopped by!
