    I couldn’t get this off my mind while I was in the shower. I’d bet the parents are saying that it’s no big deal, just some flowers that weren’t even bought. Stealing is still stealing and vandalism is vandalism. Next it will be a convince store or a gas station.

    DHS and the sheriff’s department know this family well and are aware of all of the deviltry that they do.  The oldest boy (14) broke into a concrete business and did $35,000 worth of damage.  He also started the ball diamond on fire….broke into another business here in town and destroyed what ever he could get his hands on….not sure of the dollar damage….etc.  They have all been caught and turned in for stealing cigarette butts from behind the bars and for stealing candy from the locker.

    I did get some sleep, but I am not going to let this go quite yet.  Charlene

    Wow!  I am just now seeing this, Charlene, as I didn’t make it here at all yesterday.  I am flat-out stunned by the parents’ attitudes.  That mother is really a piece of work!  You called her perfectly.  I would definitely file a report about the incident so there is a record of it.  You can hardly be the only one with experiences like this with those kids.  Eventually, it is going to catch up with them.  A big part of me agrees with Julie’s assertion that you at least threaten making contact with Social Services.  That IS parental neglect, IMO.  Love the idea of you confronting the mother at work since she refused to deal with it at home!  Choices and consequences are what makes up life.

    Somehow I missed the latter posts.  Must not have gone further than page one.  Duh!  That family is scary if the authorities are aware of them and they still behave like this.

    It sounds to me like the oldest boy (at least him) are crying out for the attention of the parents.  What a shame!

    Wow Charlene!!!!!!  I don’t blame you for being upset.  It all comes back to the way one brings up a child.  Young children don’t realize that breaking someone’s property is not acceptable unless the parents teach them.  Seems there is a great deal of neglect.  The sad part is that these children will one day get into more serious trouble where even the parents will not be able to help them.  I find that sad!

    Let’s just hope Charlene, that they don’t pick on your yard again.

    Oh, my! Nothing is wrong in today’s way of thinking it seems. I am sorry this happened.

    Just thinking about those kids…I wonder if there might be one in the group who didn’t do anything, but will be ruined by association. I had a brother-in-law years ago that actually taught his kids to steal from a very early age….when his youngest son grew up, he stole from his dad,which made him soooo mad! Well, what did he expect? None of those 3 kids have turned out well at all. The daughter was caught stealing from her job and fired (several thousand $ worth) I have no idea why they didn’t arrest her for that…she also stole from her mom (my sister) while she was in a nursing home. She was charged with elder abuse because another sister turned her in. They didn’t do anything but close her out of her mother’s accounts. She still gets away with everthing…and now she has a grown daughter who is just like her. I won’t even go into the boys…..it’s a wonder they are still alive. It is so sad, as I love those kids to this day…and I think they are all in their 40′s or nearly so…I saw 2 of them at their mom’s memorial service, but that was the first time in many, many years (the oldest son didn’t come to this service and we were all very glad…he would have caused a lot of trouble)

    I hope these kids turn out better than that.

    Oh, and I sure would keep everything locked up from now on.

    I love watching the tv program, The Middle!  About a typical American family w/ 3 kids trying to survive in this day & age!  They got the family down the street w/ the undisciplined brat kids who stealn& bully everyone!  It’s soooo typical that it is hilarious!  The actor who plays the bully/brat kids’ Mom is great!  Trying to figure out who that is! but like I said, it seems to be happening about everywhere, sad to say!

    I was thinking about this. You took the plants back without first having the police see them on the property,  so you can’t press charges because you have no proof. It would be your word against there.

    The 14 yr. old is getting to the age where prosecution could happen. The others would be put in foster care. Apparently the parents know that these are petty crimes and they won’t do anything about it.

    Just read this!  Wow!

    I second the statement that you should report it.  If the dad said call the police he probably thinks you won’t.  So you need to call his bluff and do it.  Those kids need to learn now what their actions mean and what the consequences are because as they get older they will get into greater trouble if they don’t learn now.

    I agree with bwatcher about no proof of the plants being stolen.  The minute you see something like this Charlene take pictures of it right away.  That is how I got the idiot next door pushing snow through the fence.  Then I called the Sheriff.  I now take pictures of my property on the other side every now and then to prove that damage was done, for it was this way before and how it looks now after the damage was done.  Whenever another boat or vehicle is parked over there I take a picture of it just in case something gets damaged when they move the stuff.  If they are working over on that side or mowing I take a picture of our side of the property.  I am not taking any chances because they do not care what they do.  We are going to put a fence all along that side of the properly as well, but with steel posts.

    The same lady has been warned about the dogs barking at us when we are working on our property as well.  She lets them bark at us when we are doing our wood or cleaning up the property, so I called the dog catcher on her.  Now she has to get the dogs in when we are over there working, or be given a citation for it.  I plan to walk that line daily and start cleaning up sticks and branches there.  I will be making it hard on her for a while with the dog thing to let her know I will not take her crap anymore.  Too many pea brains living in this World these days and the only thing they care about is themselves.  We are lucky to have such good friends that we have met here with caring and giving hearts.  I don’t know why it is we seem to get picked on by such cruel and greedy neighbors.  I just shake my head to think this crap with my neighbor started with us putting a pink line up along the lot line so we could plant some trees we got free.  The pea brain lady got all flustered about that line being there.  She never asked why it was there.  However, it sure helped stop the encroachment of their vehicles being parked on my property just so they got them into the shaded area by our trees.  We plan to take down all the trees on that side of our property anyway.

    I only lock my doors when I go to bed at night. With these dogs there is NO way anyone would want to come in here. I am so sorry you are stuck with such neighbors, you don’t deserve that. I agree that you might want to file a complaint with the sheriff or whoever you have for law enforcement…these kids need to have a record of this stuff and you might as well be the one to start that record. Maybe an officer could go to the house and explain things to the kids AND the parents. They are headed down the wrong road.

    The sheriff has been to their house 100 times….the kids are not frightened of him at all.  When I talked with the Sheriff’s dept this morning, they told me they have a big old long list of complaints involving these kids.  The 14 year old has been to court 5 times…once more and he will be sent to a juvenile facility.  I think that is what he needs….but he has already taught the younger 2 how to steal and vandalize.

    The Mother offered to pay for the plants.  I told her that was not the point….the point is her kids are running all over town and stealing and wrecking other people’s property…they NEED parental guidance.  She told me that they try, but the kids don’t listen.  She said that they grounded them for 1 week.  When I got to work all 3 of them were running all over town….what does grounding mean?  The Mom is the biggest liar I have ever met in my life….and the kids follow her lead because they have learned it from her.

    I have to get back to work.  Charlene

    If no one confronts them and helps them have better values – we all loose.

    They are just going to get worse.

    They probably shoplift, too. Where will they stop.

    Hope they find better things to do!!!  Alma
