So one of my best friends is a cop here in town, (who was on duty tonight) and i was sitting on my front step having a cup of tea while rowan was playing in the yard. i saw him pull up in a cruiser so i figured he was just stopping by to say hi, as he does often. But this time, he was still on the radio, and when he hopped out he gave me the 'shhh'... and then he put his hand on his gun and released the safety. I decided to get rowan into the house and lock the door and then creep out the window to see what was going on. i saw him go up the street a bit and then back up arrived. i went into the living room to grab my tea and then my friend is standing beside me and says 'hey!, sorry about that, we're just looking for the owner of the truck in front of your house'... (i'm still trying to figure out how he got into my backyard and into my house so quick and quiet) and i proceed to tell him, "oh, that's the next door neighbours sons truck, he's in their yard right now" to which my friend replys "oh shit!" and bolts out the back door. i tried to creep on them from the upstairs window but couldn't figure out what was going on.
My friend called me shortly after telling me that my next door neighbours son is a sociopath who has a long record of really dodgy offences, and is actually banned from our entire county. i guess he kidnaped his next door neighbour, held her hostage for a few days and tortured her in his basement. He was living in a town north of here but commited another crime up there and the judge ordered him to go live down here with his dad, which is a conflict of his probation. so now he is off to court tomorow and i hope they send him away, seeing as my friend said to keep my doors and windows locked because he is fucking crazy and has a long history of violence and abuse towards anyone. so now i'm off to bed and i think i'll take the kids up to my mums tomorrow.
