I'm unsure what I should do....
My half brother is declared scziphenic or however it's spelled but it's much worse than that. He really wants to be me, he wants what I have.
I'm blessed with a beautiful girlfriend and 3boys/1girl for kids.
He has called an threatened me repeatedly (including Christmas Day) with bodily harm and has said unbelievable things to my girlfriend that has
her unable to sleep at night.
I'm not scared because face to face he can't beat me but I work50 hours a week so I'm not always here to defend my family.
My girlfriend bought herself a firearm she's so scared but he has verbally said "I will kill my brother" (me) "AND have my way with your"
If you are seriously worried, then you should get hold of a recording device to record your telephone communications with your half brother, document
them, and pass them up the chain, that is the first step toward some sort of peace. If your neighbors are good people, and persons in whom you have
any faith or friendship, then make them aware of the situation as well, and ask them to keep a weather eye on your home, your lady, and your kids for
you. If you have no neighbors like that... If it was me in this situation, I know a couple of people I could call in to mind the homestead for me, but
I do not know how you are placed in that way.
He currently lives In Florida (Marathon Island) an I live in California so what should I do?????????????????
He's a violent felon that's on the run from California, but he has mental issues an is haunting my family an I.
He is fully capable of his threats an is living under the radar which is terrifying my family. I've tried to inform VALLEJO POLICE DEPARTMENT
but they said they can't do anything until he tries it....
Just looked up on the web about the way the Florida legal system deals with death threats. If you can prove that your half brother made threats
against you, that is actually a second degree felony, which on its own carries a fifteen year maximum prison term, with a possible addition of a ten
thousand dollar fine. Due to the fact that you are in California however, it is in your own hometown that you need to report the crime. Look at this
Just some background Info.... He raped me as a child (he's 6years older than me) I've never went to the cops about that because that wasn't how I
was raised but now that I have a kids I'm way more concerned.
Any advice/help is greatly appreciated!!!!! An don't just say arm up because that doesn't deter crazy people...is there any legal action I
can take to protect my family? Restraining orders aren't granted unless they can be served to the person so I need another solution .... Please help
Well, what the police you contacted told you, about not being able to do anything unless he acts is pretty bogus. The law says that he has already
committed at least a misdemeanor (worth one year in county jail), if not a felony. If he has previous convictions, and is still persona non gratis in
California, then he is likely to be risking some serious jail time inflicting this horror on your family. However, the police are not trained to know
the ins and outs of the law, that is a prosecutors job. Aside from the specific crime of threatening yourself and your family, he could also be
accused of harassment, stalking, and several other crimes.
Basically, record your next conversation, and any communication you get from your half brother. Get the phone company to send you a list of your
calls, and document what was said in the older calls, if you can remember. Verbatim is best. Take all the information you can get, all the detail you
can, and bring it to your local police office, tell them that you want your half brother arrested, since he has already committed an offense under the
law as it stands, AND since his prior history of behavior toward you is ample evidence that the threat made is real and serious. The documented calls,
and the recorded verbal threats, should be more than enough for an arrest, even across state lines. In fact, you may find that this element of the
case actually makes the offense slightly larger, and may even attract an amount of federal interest, depending on the circumstances.
I wish you the best of luck, and suggest that as well as doing what I have suggested, that you look into the law on this matter for yourself, just so
you know the territory into which you are treading. Also, I know you said that simply arming up will not be enough to deter your half brother, but I
would suggest that one does not arm up to deter. One arms up in order to terminate the threat in extreme circumstances, and therefore the suggestion
has merit. Just saying!
Other than that, you and yours are in my prayers. Godspeed to you.
