This guy is the lowest common denominator.
A goody two shoe who does more harm than good whilst all the while thinking that he is right.
With great clarity I imagine the negative discussions about you and your family that he and his wife have had at the dinner table or while lying in bed together, each with a magazine or book in their hands with the light still on.
Letterman or Leno was probably on their bedroom TV while they were talking about you.
Assuming that a woman has ACTUALLY accepted him as her husband of course!
But the truth is that he is NOT right.
I've had dealings with his type before and there is no real easy way to handle him.
According to him, HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT.
That's how he sees it.
Tolerance of him is your only choice.
Believe me when I say that you've made an enemy here. (him I mean)
This guy hates everything you represent which from your writing I take to be middle-class working people with children who are somewhat relaxed in your methods of raising your kids. (that is the conclusion I drew from your text...I may be wrong)
What I DO know even without ever meeting you or your wife is that you both know that you're good parents and you'll do how you please and damn him if he doesn't like it.
Am I right?
I look down on ANY man who would even dare make threats that he would call DHS.
Any man who would threaten to upset the balance of and possibly destroy a family even in jest is an insect that deserves to be stepped on....plain & simple.
Even if his assumption was based upon your lie, I believe he seriously took it to be true out of simple ignorance.
(I do not discredit you for that falsehood Eirik...I would've probably made up something like that myself...Hehe!...and who gives a 5 year old a BB gun anyway!?...I have no children and even I know better than that!)
You're dealing with scum...a vile person who thinks he's in the right.
He is arrogant and has illusions of grandeur.
And all in the name of the neighborhood association!
If he lived in old times I'd bet that he'd be in charge of a drumhead trial or a witchhunt!
He obviously has psychological problems if he has made it his hobby or directive to make the best community possible.
While that may be a good thing if done right and by the right person, this man however has taken your words very personally and has issued a threat to involve representatives from DHS to hurt you and your family which to me, indicate a total disregard for you or your family's well being.
It is his method of reprisal which you cannot deny is attempting to hit you below the belt...even if it is an empty threat.
He is a snake in the grass.
His needs to be community leader and to make a sort of utopian society within the 1/2 mile radius that he lives in has spiraled into OBSESSION.
Why else would he organize a "community meeting" and spout out directions and orders to his fellow members?
This man NEEDS to have control.
Your e-mail back to him has upset that.
He is angry that he cannot control you or members of your family.
(Yes I watch too much Dr.Phil)
I urge you to be vigilant and consider yourself ABOVE him.
I know I would!
Also congrats to you for sending him that e-mail which basically tells him to f**k off!!
If all else fails we'll send Wyckednick over to CHOKE SLAM HIS ASS!!!http://ssw.milwaukeewrestling.com/Wickedprofile.htm
