Let me preface this with: I do not live in a shitty neighborhood. Its a suburb and usually very quiet and boring. Sooo, I usually keep to myself in my neighborhood, If someone needs help, suagr, a few bucks, etc, they know that if i can help I will. I've lived in my home for 7 years with my hubby. This last saturday a new neighbor who JUST moved in was out in the street at 3 AM screaming and yelling at someone. Of course I was looking discreetly out my windows, that shit is better than cable. It wasnt bothering me too much, as long as they didnt wake up my 2 year old son. After 2 minutes of spying my friends and I went back to smoking. Then we heard the screaming escalate. So back to the window we went. There were 4 girls standing in the road yelling at 2 girls standing in their yard. So we KNEW something was going to happen. My yard is completely surrounded by bushes, so we went out into the yard to spy better. Completely unseen!! The 4 girls ended up jumping one of teh girls in the yard, and her friend just ran away leaving her there alone! I wasnt sure if we should call the cops or not, so we waiting watching for a second to see if it would die down. After a minute they dragged her into the road and started bashing her head on the ground! So we called the cops ASAP. We were really obvious at that point hoping to scare them off, which it did! Unfortunately the cops came too late and the girls that jumped my new neighbor were gone. The cops didnt really do anything, just checked the girl out, took her statement and left. As SOON as the cops left she called these girls up and started shit talking. Of course they came back. But this time there were TWO cars. 5 Girls, 6 Guys. They all jumed her this time. So my friends and I immeadiately went outside onto the sidewalk where they could see us, hoping to make them stop somehow. Some one had a gun, idk who but they were talking about shooting someone. So we called the cops again and went inside, I was not sticking around to find out who had a gun. The cops took 20 Minutes to show up!!! Of course the people who jumped her got away AGAIN. This time the paramedics sewed her up and she was talking about pressing charges. WELL cut to Sunday night. She (the girl we were trying to help) was outside her house talking about "that dumb little bitch who ratted to the cops" The next morning I wake up and my pool liner is all slashed up. 10 different stabs and slashes, completely irreparable. I KNOW it was her, but i have NO proof. The worst part is now my son has no pool for the summer. So basically what should I do about this?? I am a stay at home mom of a 2 year old. I am 5'4 and 130 pounds. so I can TRY to fight her, but shes a BIG BITCH. Also I dont want to be put in a situation where my son can be in danger! IDK i am at a loss trying to figure out what the best steps to take are!! PLease help me out and thanks for reading my mini saga!
