Huge hugs to you, tsitdawg, but my 2c is that you should delete this thread asap. You've given out a lot of identifying information over the years; I'm sure someone could track you down if they really wanted to, on the basis of this post.

Maybe just make a more generic thread - looking after yourself in a highly stressful & dangerous situation - instead?

I will sleep on your situation and see if I have something more productive to add in the morning.

All the very best to you.

Dude - you ARE getting a little nutty from the stress of this situation. You CANNOT do this any more. I'm an RM too, I know all about our moral obligations. Let me just tell you it is NOT your duty to save your neighborhood if the police won't do it good enough or fast enough. It's not a one man job. If I were in your shoes, I would totally sell my house and get the heck out of dodge. You can't live there. And it's not your problem if someone else decides to move in. You've done all you can do and for the sake of your very life and health - it's time to call it quits. Does your wife know about this? Don't answer that. If she doesn't you need to tell her and then you guys need to go and look for a new place to live - TODAY. Period.

hey dawg, what youare doing is commendable, just be very careful. there is a amc series out that is really good, stars bryan cranston, who use to play the funny dad on malcolm in the middle. now this series is called breaking bad. it's about bryan's role as a chemist teacher who gets cancer and needs to get alot of extra money. he gets in to making meth, really top notch meth, so the story entails the life of a meth maker and his pardner (who is a user). but that story tells grim life of a meth dealer and tweeker. very real, good show. and they malke it in a rented house, kinda like you're describing. also the show is set a filmed in alb, new mexico

Dawg, if your local PD is not working fast enough on this case you need to talk to a DA. I am concerned about the statement you make about another crime org. Sounds like they already know what your doing. I cant tell you what to do only , be careful .
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Recruit as many of your neighbors as possible to help gather information. There is power in numbers and you will find a lot of emotional support as you work together. We started with an informal coffee hour at the park and then moved to meetings in living rooms. We dropped off a small postcard inviting people to meetings at as many houses as we could easily reach in an afternoon. When we had too many people to fit in a living room, we moved to the local school auditorium. The principal donated the space to us at no charge. Unfortunately, this can happen in any neighborhood at any time. Do tell your wife and family. The more they know the safer they will be. Find out if your city has a neighborhood involvement office. This organization provides information above and beyond what police tell you. I am absolutely amazed at what neighbors can accomplish when they work together.
It took our neighborhood a little over 2 years to solve a similar problem. We received death threats, bizarre law suits (each dismissed with prejudice by a judge so the person bringing the suit had to pay our legal fees), and press coverage. I sent out press releases inviting reporters to come to our meetings. The press coverage actually helped a lot. People donated money and legal counsel to help.
We have not had another problem like that in six years, I think the dramatic press coverage made it obvious that our neighborhood is very active at solving problems.
As to the stress making your illness worse, I still have not found a solution to that other than getting rid of the problem. I apologize for my post being so long. I believe in what you are doing and wish you great success. You are not alone.

I think you should delete this thread too and start a generic one as Ivy suggested. I don't want them finding this and coming to harm you. That's really the only advice I have for you. If someone in your neighborhood were to get killed by this... do the police have counselors you could talk to about this and your condition? Maybe moving would be better and here's my reason why: You know what's going on which can put you and your family at risk. The new people will probably not know and that can make them safer for the time being. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this. I wish our state was safer sometimes. :(

I don't see what help deleting the post will do, he's already walking around with a loaded gun and conversing with the perpetrators. This post is the least of his worries IMHO.
