My Neighbor Is Physically Bullying My MotherThis woman, who is in her late 40s and probably weighs 180lb (~5'10") tried to hit my mother the other day. Apparently in the state of NY, physical harassment is acceptable, at least for the first time. You need to have a visible injury to press charges but of course I am not going to wait until my mother (late 60s) ends up with a black eye by this gorilla.
I don't really know what to do. Since I know now that verbal harassment cannot stand in court I suppose I can do the same, but honestly, I find it embarrassing to be standing in the street for the whole neighborhood to watch while I am screaming obscenities to this gorilla...We think such actions will only result in my mother and I being considered nutcases just as much as my psychotic neighbor. Arrgghhhh!!!!!!!!
