Rotten Apples

I'm a peaceful and private guy. I served my time in the military.  If anyone deserves to live in peace, it's me. 

So, I get angry when people who don't know me start vandalizing my property.

I have pretty much kept to myself in this neighborhood. I don't really talk to anyone but the adjacent neighbors on my left and right.

I don't care to really know anyone here, because it is mostly a military neighborhood. You get to know them, and either they PCS or they get on post housing. You never see them again.

About 4 months ago, a family moved into the house behind us, and they have an apple tree. I've only met one of the guys, there. There's a woman and her son that lives there, and once in a great while, you see different men there of different cultural origins.

Someone from that house keeps throwing apples in our yard, and, tonight, after I came in from the porch from a smoke break, someone hurled an apple at the sliding door. I don't know these people, I don't care to know them. All I know is that the son plays guitar, and his mother lives there with him. I think, though, the guy that bought the house struck a deal with an MS-13 gang member, who shows up every once in a while.

The general trend when Mexicans want to take over a neighborhood is to vandalize and harrass.

The idea is to buy up the property, move in, trash it . . . then force "unwanted" people out of the neighborhood.

Well, this property is double-homesteaded, and there's 8 years left to pay on it.

So, if they want to keep on vandalizing, I'll just call the police the next time. I live in America, and I should be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of my own home without someone invading and vandalizing it.
