My neighbor has threatened me and the police can't charge him even though he is on probation and owns a handgun.Please help me.

He has been reported to the SPCA for animal cruelty and blames me.He is a hoarder and left me emails saying he doesn't make threats,he makes promises.The police can't help me.What can I do?

You will have to talk to an attorney about this for professional legal advice. The attorney can lodge a complaint against the neighbor and force the police to act. If you have the emails he sent you, the better because they can be used as evidence.

Get yourself into some self defense classes. Get a concealed weapons permit, and carry your gun on you at all times. Lock your doors at night, and take dunczn's advice, hire an attorney.

That all takes time, which she might not have. I think she should get outta there, now!

For some people, it's not easy to run. Besides, you can't always run from your problems. I for one, wouldn't have anywhere to run, nor would I want to. So for me, the advice I gave, is what I would personally do.

Call and complain a lot about him and the hoarding to the city/county so they will foreclose.

Listen to dunczn-he's right. Get to a lawyer quickly. You urgently need legal advice, and you also need an official order of protection. And if I were you, I'd remove myself from there immediately. Do you have a friend or relative you can stay with for awhile? It stinks that the police can't do anything to protect you. We all understand that in a free country, a person can't be arrested for something that he might be about to do. We also understand that everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty, but that's not much comfort when you're being threatened and the police are powerless. Just because we understand why, in a free country, the laws have to be biased in favor of the criminals, doesn't make it not stink. Please do what you need to do to keep yourself safe.

Wow really? If you have proof- the emails like you say, that someone is making threats against you-which is illegal, the cops should at least investigate the guy/situation-I don't think it's legal for them to not do so. Anyway you should stay at a hotel/friends/relatives house for a while and get a lawyer.

I have also been threatened but with a pick ax standing 5 feet away from me and waving it. My neighbor as well. Police (protector.. that's funny) I have lived in my home for 53 years. Ill be dammed if someone who not worth will make me move. I do suggest you get a gun but until then stay with friend and family. I shoot a 40 s&w. Oh by the way the "POLICE'' said well" we need to get his side of the story and it is she said he said with no other witness except for his friend.
