Just went for a run around the neighborhood, out of sheer boredom.
On the way back, stopped to chat with a local kid - mostly because I was winded like a loser. Both bored, we nattered for a bit, and then the kid just so happened to tell me a few things that explained the weird things I'd been seeing around the area.
Because his mother had the "gall" to snap at some local dickheads who were harassing them when they first moved in, he now can't leave his house, can't leave anything outside, can't buy a car (until they get a secure garage) and had to get cheap security shutters installed. For fear of being attacked or having their shit broken or stolen by these fucking scumbags.
Police aren't doing shit - and I've seen them around, being oh-so effective - and I know the little cunts who are doing this. I've seen destroyed bikes, go-carts and other possessions a little dude would cherish, littered about the neighborhood. They can't move away.
I have immense respect for this kid, and this just fucking makes my blood boil. Worse, I know how he feels.
There is no way they deserve this. I don't care who you are, you have to agree a kid should be allowed to ride his bike around his local, suburban, ostensibly safe neighborhood without fear.
Especially not fear of sociopathic dick-blisters who only live here because the government shouted them a house.
