For almost eight years, my wife has been bullied by our close neigbor. He only strikes when I'm away, when confronted he acts innocent. He tells the other neigbors in our immediate area that she is crazy, an idiot and a problem. He gets within inches of her face at times and yells, calling her the crudest of curse words. This often happens in front of our juvenile boy. Just this past week he pulled his fist back as if he wanted to hit her. He is 6'2 and 375, she is 5'4 and 140. As a direct result of these ongoing attacks my wife has become depressed, fears going outside and takes medication for depression and anxiety. The local police have come out several times, not much they can do. I'm told a restraining order would likely not be permanent. I want to hit him were it counts!In addition, he urges his wife and children to verbally assault her. My wife has suffered substantial emotional distress over this, her quality of life has diminished greatly. In addition, our juvenile son's behavior has changed. He encourages his children to provoke both my wife and son with both language and physical acts.
