Well we had quite the adventure last night. We were lying in bed at a quarter to eleven, watching TV and heard a loud glass sounding crash in the back yard. Mike grabbed his gun and ran to investigate and I looked out the window to see the neighbors behind us lights turn off 2 seconds later.
Turns out the teenage neighbor boy behind us threw a plate at our house and it shattered glass everywhere. We called the cops and waited for them to arrive. Mike waited in the backyard for the kid to come back outside and scope out his work, which of course he did. Mike scared the crap out of him by shining the flashlight in his face as soon as he got near the fence (he didn’t know Mike was in the yard). Mike asked why he was throwing stuff at our house and of course the boy denied it. Mike told him he could explain it all to the cops. When the police officer got there the first time the boy turned off all the lights and hid so the cop had to leave. Five minutes after the cop left all the lights came on because the mom got home, so we called the police officer back to the house. After the officer left we could hear the mom screaming at the boy for over an hour. It was entertaining.
This is not the first time we have found stuff in our yard. There have been eggs, toilet paper, garbage and other miscellaneous junk. What’s worse is that this kid is a Level II sex offender for Child Molestation (removed link since it gave his address and essentially shares mine). And until we catch this kid in our yard or have proof of him doing it in the act there is nothing we can do. Our legal system is quite grand. Maybe it’s time we invest in a motion detected camera.
