thanks so much everyone we really appriciate all the help you have given us and if someone else has this problem hopefully they will see this thread and know what to do :)
I've been watching this from the sidelines and now feel compelled to chime in. I am familiar with Florida's laws on wiretapping. I lived in the State for 23 of the last 27 years and was a Reserve Deputy Sheriff for 8 of those years. We covered this topic in the Academy and we covered it in our in-service training - extensively. Florida's laws are quite clear on when you can and cannot record a conversation. It has nothing to do with whether one wears a badge or not. You cannot record a telephonic conversation without all parties consent - to the extent you must state you are recording the conversation and ask a specific question to the other party seeking specific permission to record the conversation. You must state your name and time/date. The other party must clearly state their name(s) and acknowledge their constent to the recording. You also must give the other party the option of either terminating the call or requesting to speak "off line." You may wear a mic and you do not need to inform the other party that you are wearing a wire. And yes, that recording is admissable (precedent set in most all of Florida's 67 counties).
Your best option is to go about your routine and not acknowledge their presence - no looks, no words, no gestures. If confronted, respond accordingly. Once you have compiled enough clear evidence, submit it to the State's Attorney's Office - ONLY. That "need for 4 weeks of evidence" is a brush off.
You've been looking at this from a criminal perspective. Try a civil suit. The burden of proof falls on the respondent, not the plaintiff. Let them try to refute video and audio evidence. Failing everything else, do your best to move to a different part of town in a different neighborhood. Just a thought.................
I don't see why everyone is going crazy about this part of the thread.
--Would be my best suggestion as well, and it's not very expensive either.
p.s.s... Sniper (above) has a great suggestion as well with the civil suit.
sorry i havent posted back in a while but they are no longer living there....they were talking bad to the latino guys mom(he lives in a couple houses down) when she was carrying in groceries and the latino kid told them he was going to kill them all when he came back out....now they live like 15 miles away lol
thanks everyone for all the help!
I wouldn't do anything physical. You don't bring pepper spray to a gun fight. If this were me and I knew someone carried a gun and he attempted to gain entry to my vehicle with that gun on him, well...
Let's just say I'd be 100% justified where I live.
