My NfH has lived next door (terraced houses) for approx 2.5 years.
She has a new boyfriend who now lives with her - proper scrote he is. I reported her over an animal matter and since then they have been a nightmare.
She moved our wheelie bin - she has always left the back yard full of dog faeces but usually I have brought it to her attention (which I shouldn't have to every few days) and her bf cleaned it.
I reported it to the landlord as I was sick of asking her and she wasn't cleaning it. We couldn't/can't have our windows open as the house gets full of flies and the stench from the yard is embarassing when we have visitors.
They both verbally attacked me and the bf threatened me and also threatened to set his dog on mine. I reported it to the police and they went round to see them - I also told the police about the state of the yard and they promised to sort that with her. I told the landlord and he had a word with them - allegedly!!
They laid low for a few weeks and then she started again a few days ago. Let the bfs dog out (on purpose) to attack mine and that was the final straw for me.
I reported it to the police again and the officer came out (after going round to see her) - there were 6 piles of muck on her yard.
Basically, he said that she was vulnerable as she had depression and I should/would have to put up with it!!
I could not believe what I was hearing. So she can do anything she wants and get away with it which is why I have lost all faith in the police - they seem to protect the perpetrators and not the victims.
She also stands at the back door gesturing and swearing at me when I am at our kitchen sink.
I have been keeping a diary - but now I don't think I will waste time doing it as it will serve no purpose.
He said that they had to ignore us and we have to ignore them - which we will gladly do - but how long is she going to keep it up?? and when she starts again - which she will - then she will simply be told again as it is clear that the police are loathe to take action. They also said that the dog faeces issue is an environmental health matter - even after they said they would deal with it!!
I can't believe how unfair this all is. Don't get me wrong - I have sympathy for anyone with a mental illness - but it does not help when she is taking medication, drinking alcohol and smoking drugs!! Why should we have to put up with her behaviour and random, angry attacks?
I was also going to get CCTV so I could collect evidence.
Totally let down by the justice system yet again. :-(
