Knock Down Ginger

Recommended Posts

My 90 year old gran lives on her own in a maisonette and, every night for the past two weeks, she's had vermin banging on her door and ringing her doorbell between 1am and 4am. I only found out because I went to visit her last week and she looked like she hadn't slept in days. Now, I get that knocking on doors and running off can be funny for kids and I thought that if they got no response (she's too scared to open the door!) they'd get bored and do something else but, two weeks later, they're still at it.

 

So, at the weekend I asked a couple of neighbours if they've had the same problem and they tell me they've had it a couple of times. They think it may be kids coming to and leaving my gran's neighbour's place during the night (make of that what you will). Those neighbours only moved in a few weeks ago and there's been all kinds of t***s hanging around since.

 

Feel free to tell me I'm overreacting but I'm fecking furious that people would harass an old woman who has heart problems and am looking for some forum advice on how best to handle this. I'm more than happy to stay over and chase the little t***s but also conscious that may make things worse for her...

Note through to all the neighbours saying what's happened and the effect it's had on your gran's health. Say you've contacted the police and offer to arrange a meeting with any neighbours who have had trouble/want to arrange some kind of neighbourhood watch group.

 

Goon option could be your plan b if they don't respond favourably.

Does your local authority have an anti-social behaviour unit, crime reduction group, etc? Find out who's responsible for it, i.e. the lead officer of the council and the cabinet member/chair of the committee and get in touch with them in strong terms.

 

The scum new neighbours may be known to the local police/social services and they need to know that they have to keep a close eye on them.

 

Molby's goon squad also needs to pay a visit.

Street justice is always best. It worked a treat for my sister in Murphs old neighborhood.

 

 

I know of somebody in an almost identical position who sorted it like this. It only works though if you're hard and more mental than them and they know it. Dangerous road to go down.
