What to do about nightmare neighbors?
Recently, some of you offered advice to fellow Wonk reader Mr. Baltimore about his neighbor dilemma. He likes his next-door neighbor and doesn't want to damage the relationship, but he's getting tired of frequent renovation noise.
Here's a bigger problem for your collective smarts, posed by "no name":
My mom's neighbors are the craziest folk you'd never want to meet. They've robbed her home, left dog feces on her front door knob, shot at the cameras outside her home, shot at the guy installing for the second time the cameras outside her home, they use her outside water spicot and have caused her paveway to rot, they park their cars in her drive, they've threatened her life and have falsely accused her of things she hasn't done.
While in court, they lied while under oath and made her look as if she were some old, crazed woman in need of psychiatric care. If it were me, I know i would have committed suicide a while ago. I don't know how she puts up with it. They've even repeatedly slit her tires and had their children dump trash into her back porch and then, call the sanitation department on her. She's called the police. She's hired a lawyer, but still these insane neighbors seem to be winning.
Where's the justice?
Any suggestions? What can a law-abiding person do, short of move?
