You did make a police report and took pictures of the spray paint art, right?
Our neighbor did. She called the police and they came and took pictures and talked to the family... which I'm sure did no good.
I believe that constitutes a hate crime does it not?
I guess it should... but we're not Jewish... so does that still make it a hate crime? My next door neighbor's aren't Jewish either so it really confuses me why they would paint Swastikas... but whatever!
If the mom's a constant drug user/dealer, can't the cops arrest her for that?
I've seen the cops take her away in handcuffs a few times... lot of good it does obviously!
By the way...what if something terrible happens to one of these children? People will be screaming "why wasn't anything done?" Then heads will roll when it becomes known how many people tried to get them help. Maybe your CPS needs to be reminded of this.
I KNOW!! This is why we all keep calling. The last time I called was when I saw one of their daughters sitting in the driveway in a t-shirt and panties eating dirt with a plastic spoon. The time before that it the next door neighbor called because the little kids were having a tea party in the middle of the road. She was driving down the street and told the kids to move and they just stared at her. The CPS lady said, "Yeah we get a lot of calls about that family and they're under investigation." Sadly, I assume nothing will be done until one of the kids is dead.
I cannot believe that the city will do nothing for your neighborhood. I don't suppose you have a home association? I know they can get things done as well.
We don't have a HMA but we've been in contact with our district rep and he's trying to help, but even that seems to be to no avail.
Do these people own the house or rent?
The father's father owns the house (the kids grandfather) so the family is living there for free. I don't see them leaving any time soon, which is why my next door neighbors decided to put their house on the market. One family came by to look at their house but the neighbor kids were out front cussing so the prospective buyers high-tailed it out of there. Can't really say I blame them.
You would think a roaming dog constantly being picked up though would mean they couldn't get the dog back.
I know! Apparently there is no leash law in TN. I thought every state had that!
Is the paint on the city/county street? if it is I hope you call the transportation people or whoever in your neck of the woods does upkeep on the streets because there may be a violation there and plus they can clean it up.
Yes it is on the city street and the cops actually sent someone to paint over it before Frank even got a chance. I'm sure no charges will be pressed though... there never is.
Might sound mean but if the dog is a good dog could he somehow disappear to a good home that would take care of him properly?
Well you know, they used to have 2 dogs and I haven't seen the other one in AGES so hopefully he is at a good home and didn't get hit by a car :(.
Hey, I'm sure missing seeing pictures of my favorite "K" kids! Have you lost your camera, Renee?
Not really... I left in it my friend's car, so I didn't lose it, just forgot it! I have it back as of today! :)
So are you gonna sue them?!!!!=)
LOL Nah, too much work!
At least you aren't like that lady who had to have the nasty pictures taken of her burns from McD's coffee. lol
Ewww I know, right? That's enough reason for me to never sue! I wouldn't want anyone taking pics of my chest and stomach! LOL
Ugh, how rude! Maybe find a new MacDonalds???
Yeah, I guess I could... the rest are just so far away!
A question for you readers!
My angel also has Down's Syndrome and we are battling leukemia FOR THE THIRD TIME! More than likely we will be spending Valentines Day in the hospital as we live here now! or at least it feels like it. Our hospital room is already decorated with hearts. Does anyone have any good ideas of something special I could give the nurses on heart day?
