In 1999 during a really bad thunderstorm a tree had fallen and hit the neighbors house roof. The neighbors father came over to our house and tell us that “our tree” caused dam eye to the house and that we would need to put for all the damages. My dad told him that our insurance would pay half and he would pay half.  
This wasn’t good enough for that neighbor. He decided to start harassing us at all hours of the day until we agreed to pay for all. The night of July 15th he came to our house around 3 in the morning throwing rocks in all of our windows. There were messages in these rocks. One message said 
 
“Pay for the damage or pay with your life”
 
“My dad called the police about the threat but the police couldn’t do anything about it because there was “no proof it was that neighbor who did it) anyhow up until July 23rd everything was ok but I got a call from the school asking “is it ok if Emily leaves school early and goes with uncle Ron?” I immediately called the school and said I had no uncle Ron. The school told me they didn’t allow it and Emily was still in school. 
My neighbor tried to get my kid out of school and do god knows what. So I angrily knocked on his door and asked what his problem was? He looked me in the eye and said “pay for the damages and all this will be forgotten.” I told him no and leave my family alone. The next day the police came and arrested Ron. 
I asked one of the neighbors what happened they said “Ron tried to buy an illegal fire weapon and when the guy asked what he was planning to do with the gun?” He said “Murder my neighbor”
