I (along with my 2 children) witnessed my neighbor (other half of a duplex house with very thin walls) drunkenly throw a chair at, grab by the hair and throw to the floor their 12 year old daughter. I reported the incident to the DYFS hotline. During the call they asked a lot of questions all of which I answered truthfully. I specifically asked that they don't give specific details because this family has already vandalized my house. When they arrived I could hear them repeatedly ask who called and eventually the worker began to go through the call and help them figure it out! Sure enough not only was my house vandalized again but they then called the hormones and just made up things about me for revenge! How is this legal?? How are people supposed to feel safe reporting abuse??
