I live in Pa, mom of 4 children ages 17,14,12,8...we just moved from the town to the country...we are renting a apartment and my male neighbor who recently (4 weeks ago) fliped my 7 yr old daighter off when she got off the bus ans was walking up the lane....we all share at the botton of the driveway that part of the driveway and then it splits off into 3 seperate longer driveways....anyway my lardlord who lives above me who has alot of mental issues to say the least had been hearing about the neighbor harrassing the kids when they got off the bus and decided to call the police...i wasnt home i was in town with my son for pt on his shoulder so i get home and im sitting at the table and my front door is open and i hear this man yelling at my kids calling them little m fers and sayn her was gonna kick their a*ses if he caught them on his lane again....which by the way he was grandfathered in2 at some point idk when because we had just moved here but it is the only way to get in and out and there isnt anyway around it soooo...i went out and i said i dont think so blah blah blah f ur gona kick any of my kids ass u'll have to go thro me ect...and he was screaming back asking me why did i calld the cops on him which i didnt at this point even know what he was talking about he starts laughing saying i got you on tape now bitch and your goin to jail just prior to this happening he had i guess spray painted an orange line across the lane about 40 feet up towards our lane off his property my son who just turnd 14 was rideing the 4-wheeler down the lane and was told by the landlord when he seem the orange line to turn on it which his front wheel appartently went over the line and the neighbor jumpd outa the woods yelling at him saying "i gota you now you little m fer ur trespassing in his face with the camcoder and i wonna know why you guys called the cops on me" (which by this point i hadnt) so the state police called me(because he called on my son for crossing his line) and i talked to them and said i wasnt ever aware that there was an issue until 2nite as far as the driveway and that the kids will not be allowed to go down it with the 4wheeler talked to him i also told him i do not want this man to have and contact with my children and the cop said i will let him know so i thought everything was ok later that night (5 hrs later to b exact) the state police are knocking on my door with a fine for me for harrassment because of the arguement that took place between him and i, he called and 2nd time to make it i guess look like 2 seperate issues plus the cops said for not having control of my children (by the way my son that crossed his line was with me in town he was getting therapy and had not been told either the police had even been here) and for repeatedly harrasing him over the property line.he also got the same fine im not sure exactly for what..o by the way this was the very first time i had ever even spoke to this man and i rent and honestly have no clue nor do i care about the property line the only time we cross it is to come and go and the kids to get back and forth to school....so next morning the kids go to the bus stop and him and his wife are down there video recording my 4 children yelling at them saying they are not allowed at the bus stop they need to stand on the other side of the road calling them names telling my kids the only 1 thats allowed on the driveway is the landlord ect when the bus gets there he gets on the bus and tell the bus driver he wants my kids to cross the street from now on and he dose not want them on "his" property..which she replied i just drive the bus and i cant do anything about this....so he gets off t he bus and followed the kids to school my son textd me and told me about what had happened so i thought just to be safe i better go down and get them when they get off the bus...which i was sitting in my car and he was recording me, the kids get off the bus and were telling me so i sat there and called the state police ( i was heading into town and i do not have cell service on my main road thats y i was sitting in my car in the driveway) so i look in my mirror and he is recording me in my car y? i have no clue guess i am tresspassing idk so the police show up and i have my kids let them tell them what had happened at the bus stop. i do not want my children harrased at the bus stop or video recorded by a stranger idk what he is doing with those tapes...so the stateys came out and went up and talked to them idk what was said cause they didnt come back but i took my children to the bus stop this am and he recorded them again from his car 2day..so i guess im just curious to know what i can do because calling the police dosnt seem to stop him from recording them my 7 yr old is freaked out about even going outside of the house! is it even legal for him to do this? and what should i do?
