My neighbor has pounded on my wall calling me a cry baby, threatened to run me through with a knife slowly, threatened to beat me up. I have it on audio! The police refused to do anything about it saying it’s his first amendment right and told me to move or shut up! The cop proceeded to yell go to college and read a book about criminal harassment and go take a college class. What are my legal options?
