    My dad had a problem with some kids in a farm truck running over his mailbox at night. He put up a new one and they ran it over. The third one he put up was different. He buried a well casing in concrete and filled the casing with concrete. That night he heard a big crash in front of the house and the next morning he followed the trail of oil and coolant down the road to the neighbor's house.

    Nowadays that would get you arrested and sued.

    "I do plan on moving because a lot has been going on since I moved here, to the point where I'm not comfortable with my kids being in this neighborhood," she said."


    Maybe I don't understand the situation, but as I read it her 10-year-old son was one of the kids trespassing and refused to leave when the old man came out and asked him to get off his lawn. If she wants her child to be safe she might try teaching him a little respect for others and their property. Until she does that I don't think her kids are going to be safe anywhere.
    We should all have a cookout in her front yard before she moves.

    I believe you are correct. I don't understand her way of thinking either. This is a good teaching moment for our kids. I have went over with them before about respecting other peoples stuff and not being a horses rear and this should be a good example for them to look at.

    That's not good for me to hear. GA is one of the places that the wife and I are considering!
    A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.
