Can I do anything if my neighbor threatened me?

Postby sonny » Tue Apr 17, 2012 10:22 am

My next door neighbor has made complaints against us ( Board of Health, DEP, Conservation Commission)- all unfounded. When I told him that I knew it was him ( I saw his name on the complaint)- he said- "I should hang you right now- do you know what you're doing down there! ( OUR own yard) The town Conservation Commission has approved any yard maintenance that we are doing. I went to the police station after the threat and the Lt.said he could go speak with him,but it might make him more upset and make things worse. What about me? I have always minded my own business, and now this neighbor walks by my house and makes me nervous and points to our property when he's at the other neighbor's house- and we are not doing anything wrong! What are my options?

You want to know all of your options? You can sit down and watch reruns of Gilligan's Island if you wish.

If you have a meaningful question about the law of some specific place, be sure to mention what city, county, state or nation is involved. There are NO universal laws.

Buy a pistol and if it is legal in your State to open carry get a holster and put it on your hip, then when he walks by just say hi neighbor and turn and walk away (I would also get surveillance cameras installed so when you get arrested for "threatening him" with the gun you will have proof you did not and or if he carries out his threats to harm you, you can prove it was self defense).

You've reported it to the police. Make sure you keep the Lt's name and if you receive any further threats of violence report them again and demand that they charge the guy.

You can file a formal complaint against your neighbor for the threat and harassment. Right now, you've just talked to one police Lt. informally. You can call the DA and ask if they will prosecute. You can also go to court, w/ or w/o a lawyer, to ask for TRO and preliminary injunction aka "stay away order" requiring him to keep his distance. If you don't have money for a lawyer, the court may have an advice desk or someone who will tell you what you need to do to get a TRO.

You need to keep a journal with anything this man's says including dates and time. A history of verbal threats etc. may become more important than you realize, especially if someone does go through with or tries to follow through with a threat. Verbal assault and harassment are legally criminal actions. Be VERY sure you record everything.
