My family is in a little situation.
Try to make this short as possible.
A few years ago had a next door neighbor "Rick" that beat up his wife "Peg". My wife was subpoenaed to court to testify as a witness. "Rick" is a big mountain man with a bad attitude. "Rick" threatened to come after my wife 'or her family.'
We later moved to a different jurisdiction and he to another.
Tuesday, my wife shows up to the first day of school with my 5th grade son. "Rick" is there with "Peg's" daughter "Missy." "Rick" is not the father and to my knowledge has not adopted her. "Missy's" father retains parental rights. Last I heard "Missy" was living with her grandparents.
"Rick" gives my wife the stink eye but skunks off without comment. Wife spoke to the Principal but got blown off. Wife then talked to the SRO (my old HS buddy) who took it a lot more seriously.
The SRO pulled me aside yesterday and told me what I already know. Almost impossible to get a paper after this long, can't do anything unless he acts first, blah blah. (I forgot that "Rick" had no parental rights until after this conversation) I told him I was not interested in getting a useless paper that would only inflame the situation. We (family and SRO) will simply go about our ways in heightened awareness. Nothing else we can do but wait and watch. I am not going to be so bold as to suggest to the SRO that he ignore me or my wife committing a felony by carrying a firearm on school grounds.
Per the law here we must disarm and secure our weapons before exiting the vehicle. The school requires us to go inside and sign out our kid at the end of the day. I am tempted to force them to let my son sign himself out and wait outside with a teacher or the SRO for us to pick him up but I'm sure that will be a real fight especially if I tell her it's so I can shoot the loser if I need to.
If "Rick" comes after me I have a few nasty surprises for him. If he comes after my wife I am concerned as she has bad fibromyalgia and will not be able to defend herself. My greatest concern is if he tries something with my 5th grade son or my 3 year old. Having known this guy in the past, I give him full credit for having the mentality to carry out his threat against any of us.
