    Wow...sorry you are going through this, Devil...no citizen should have to. I hope it's not taking too much of a toll on your mom. Sucks she has to go through this. It's diffiult enough taking care of a parent without some lunatic making life a horror for you.
    It is hard to fathom the degree things have to get to before someone can do something about it legally.
    Hope things come to at least some kind of a relatively calm conclusion for you both, but from what you write, that looks like a long shot. Guy must be fueled up big time acting like that with rottweillers in the vicinity. Damn.
    You are right about your comment on society. Where is all going? It's turning into one big Jerry Springer show.
    But it definitely sounds like you know what to do when and if trouble comes, for sure.
    Stay frosty, man.

    Left my number on the front door of the psycho and his father called me today
    He was crying on the phone and said he will make restitution etc.
    He also said that his son had been sent to jail after observation and that he would not be bailing him out
    The family is considering selling their house and moving back to India
    I honestly feel bad for them although i know they enabled him as well
    In talking to the detective that also called me today the city is going to try and file felony charges
    Im going to press as hard as i can for conviction since i also found out he goes to work and has a car
    How hard is it going to be for him to find a weapon to come at me with?
    Not very.

    Surely hope you are successful.
    Good people should not have to go through this kind of shit.
    I can't imagine what kind of work he does...not to mention someone that unbalanced driving a vehicle on a daily basis...boggles the mind.
    Good luck.

    American Airlines Isn’t the Only Company Drastically Devaluing Customer Loyalty
    Brad Tuttle,Money 5 hours ago

    To consumers, loyalty programs are all about getting something for nothing. We sign up because the programs offer discounts on groceries, or the promise of a free flight or hotel down the line, or a free chicken sandwich just for downloading a reward program app.

    To the companies crafting these rewards systems, however, loyalty programs serve very different purposes—namely, the goals of building (duh) loyalty among consumers, while simultaneously gathering data on them in order to sell more product. Customers really aren’t getting something for nothing with loyalty programs, of course. We’re giving up personal information, and often forsaking the step of shopping around for a better deal, by playing along with these programs in the quest for “free” stuff.

    What’s more, while loyalty programs tend to launch with exciting instant freebies and highly rewarding perks in order to build sizeable memberships, once a company feels its program is big enough and the rewards have perhaps gotten too rewarding, they’ll ease off the gas and change the terms of the program to cut internal costs. Loyalty members will hear about these changes as being “enhancements” or perhaps “upgrades” to the programs. That sounds nice and all, but it’s often pure spin.

    Now that loyalty programs are ubiquitous and consumers are comfortable signing up for them without too much enticement, you can assume that any rewards system change will make it more difficult for customers to get rewards. Here are three examples of loyalty programs–and by extension, your customer loyalty–being devalued lately.

    Airlines
    This week, American Airlines confirmed that as of August 2016 it was switching to a loyalty program that rewards members not based on their loyalty—as in how often they do business with the company, or how many miles they fly overall—but on how much money customers spend. The move follows a similar frequent flier change announced by Delta last summer, which also awards free flights based on how much a customer spends rather than how many miles are flown. United, the other major “legacy” carrier, has a similar system for doling out rewards.

    While the airline industry has slowly been bringing back perks like free food and makingin-flight entertainment free for all passengers, the rewards program changes demonstrate which kinds of customers are most important to the airlines. Essentially, customers who shop around for bargain flights in the hopes of accumulating miles are being punished with these new programs. At the same time, the big spenders traveling on expense accounts will find it easier to pile up enough points to trade in for “free” flights. Granted, they’re “free” only after you (or your company) have spent a ton of cash with the airline.

    The detective on the case has been amazing
    Collected all the video and took statements and rammed it down the DA's throat
    DA is in complete agreement its felony threats and he is pinned down in jail atm
    In the exact words of the detective they are going to put the screws to him
    And the father promised me he wouldn't be bailing him out
    So we will see...

    Anyone else check out the 9th Circuit Court's decision on guns today. If I've got it right, they found the Constitition does not guarantee carrying a concealed weapon.
    And that state gov't. ( maybe municipal, too ?) can require proof of something beyond self protection for a gun permit. Yup.
    Wtf is beyond self protection, I wonder?
    Sounds like Hillary's already won to me.
    Can't even wait until she does before her policies get through...

    good news
    but not as confident about the punk's father...
    he's been a patsy to him his whole life
    could easily see him being persuaded otherwise

    So my little league team went 14-2 in the regular season clinching the number one seed.

    We entered playoffs and the boys won the first game handily and proceeded to shit the fucking bed in game two of a two game elimination bracket..

    Fought our way out of the looser bracket to get to the ship...

    Game goes back and forth changing the lead 4 times.. It goes extras and We're up Top 7 and we give it up for the walk off...

    Heartbreaker to say the least...

    Now we get to go in to Tournament of Champions against all the top teams in our district..

    Hoping to make a splash..

    Just thought I'd share...

    Cheers..
