At least I know I'm not the only one up tonight. I've been listening to my 2 cats run about the apartment and their craziness is killing me. I'm so hyper-sensitive and have been for the last 2 weeks.
I would have called the cops because those boys should be in bed. I know it's hard when you know there are other people that are doing drugs and whatever. I'd be mean and get them into trouble just to save my sanity. A car can be replaced. But then again I don't know where you live.?...
Also you can write them up. The management has to give them at least 4 10-day notices, well in my state anyway. That way management has a list of these peoples offences and maybe get them out of there. Don't be afraid to call the police because if something happens to you or your kids or your property there will be a record of it.

I am very sorry to hear that the police that we tax payers pay for do not protect and serve like they are suppose to. I use to live in a very bad area like you and then I got on assisted housing and move me and my son to a nicer part of town, but since the new management moved in back in October the apartment complex has gone to pot. People stealing bicycles, and syphoning gas from cars, and slashing car tires (mine of course). I can't wait until I can either move out or my upstairs neighbors move out.
Not a good place to live!!! And yet I understand- you are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
I have never heard of anything so ridiculous, the cops not dealing with any of this? And the managers do not sound much better!
Teenagers that are looking in your windows, shooting BB guns and on and on, will get into trouble if they don't have anything constructive to do. I don't like the part where your son got hit in the leg by a BB gun. I would have so called the cops! Pick your battles with the people around you- getting shot in the leg with the BB gun would have been one of the battles!
And the 10:00 loud noise rule has to be enforced- if the cop you talk to on the phone does not want to do anything about it, ask to talk to his supervisor and let him know you mean business. You have rights too, and they are being trampled on!
Hope you can get a little rest in today, even if you just sit on the couch, close your eyes and rest for awhile-
Oh Kitty...I am so sorry for your unnecessary agitation. I don't live in a 'wealthy' neighborhood but it's pretty middle class. Two years ago, three little 'seeds of satan' decided they had nothing to do so they crawled out of their bedroom windows in the dead of night, broke into cars and took, garage door openers, sunglasses, vehicle registrations, extra keys...auto repair manuals...anything that wasn't screwed in and walked to the river(a block from my house) and chucked them in the water. Ha Ha, what a hysterical gut buster! The cops made them walk around the neighborhood and apologize, then they were assigned community service ...they were supposed to mow our lawns, pull weeds, etc for the entire summer. Never saw them again. I would have preferred that they slashed our tires. It would have been cheaper money and time wise than having to have all our papers replaced. And we have three State Police that live on this block!
I hope you can resolve this...It is soooo stressful wondering what some kid with no parental guidance is going to do next. Peace...
