What do I do about two men who threaten to kick my dog and yell profanities at me when I walk past their rental property?

I have called the police only to be given the suggestion to take an alternate route. I am a 58 year old woman with a heart condition and my dog is a very gentle 12 year old Keeshond. The two men are in their 20's/early 30's and known to the criminal system.

One NYE at a friends house. (the one who was a bad influence on me) We got a friend really drunk then tased him and spray-painted him and drew all over him in permanent marker. It was so funny. He would jump and scream every time we got him (which is really funny to watch because he is huuuge).

...I also remember hitting a fox in the outback (it died on impact) and the boys all ran out of the car to see what would happen if it was tased. It's eye popped out and it released it's bladder. I was sitting in the car rocking back and forth. hhaha

My mum had one once upon a time. It shot out those little probes. One night when her and her second husband were drunk they fired them into the air and lost one. It was so funny. They hid the taser in the house because they thought the probe would be found and traced back to them because that was also illegally obtained. haha

Videotape it and then file a complaint for threats and harassment. You have a right to walk anywhere you want.

You need to seek legal advice from a lawyer. Explain to the lawyer about the threats issued and wait for him to take action. Meanwhile, avoid the two men by taking a different route and also not talking to them.

I have meditated for you and while there are things you can do, they all can leave you vulnerable to their viciousness.
Think of it as, in driving a car, you can be DEAD right. If you insist, the lawyer is the best suggestion, at least you have someone that can verify who your enemies are and get justice but again not necessarily a GOOD outcome. Avoid them at all cost, and pray and the Lord will remove them from your life, Amen...

Digby, having grown up with keeshonds, I believe if they take any action against you, your dog will dissuade them.
Other than that, another route, a friend walking with you??

You can report their threats to the police .. but I doubt if they could do much to stop it. I'm afraid taking a different route, getting someone else to walk with you, or go at a different time of day when you know they are not around might be options.

Record it or secretly video but don't let them catch you then if they continually do it go to the police or if you're a minor go to parents or someone who cares.

Well It goes a little like this:
Family takes new born camping. Baby goes missing in the middle of the night. Mother claims 'A dingo ate my baby'. She goes to jail for mur-der, and gets released some years later when baby's clothing is found at the mouth of a dingo den. This all took place in the early 80's and only a month ago did she go back to court for the final hearing in which the coroner confirmed that a dingo actually did take and eat her baby. Can you believe it took 30 years for that!

Are you able to go visit your local councilman's office. I have found that when the police brush you off a trip or call to my alderman's office seems to get the ball rolling. I really believe that if these punks threaten you that is a form of intimidation and something should be done.

All jokes aside, yes, something should be done. The cops are supposed to protect and serve, they should at least be able to go over there and ruffle their friggin feathers!! Who knows, while the cops are there they might find something incriminating
Report as
I just may call the councilman's office with the next incident. I have another issue too with a young lady who lives next door allowing herself and her dogs to go onto my property. She thinks just because her back door opens into my driveway that it is her dogs bathroom area. She even has been so bold to walk them right up to my steps and I'm told by her landlord it isn't really a big issue. Frustrated here.
