When seconds count...I went ahead and called the sheriff's department to speak with someone. They asked whether I wanted to see someone or speak over the phone. I said I preferred to speak to someone in person. So hours later a deputy calls and says he is pretty sure he can help me over the phone instead. At this point I already knew what was coming. I realize there is nothing law enforcement can do since there wasn't an actual crime committed. I wanted this incident to be on their radar in case he comes after me again. He told me that at this point it is just two adults arguing. I let him know immediately that it was one adult arguing and one adult being verbally assaulted, there is a difference. He seemed bored with the entire conversation. When I called initially I was asked if there were weapons in the house because they needed to know for the officer's protection. I figured this guy had that information so I told him that because I carried I didn't want to go back to the pool in case this guy showed back up and I was put in a position to have to defend myself if he decided to escalate the situation. I told him this man knows my identity and after the brazen way he tracked me down and ambushed me on the pool deck, was I supposed to just go back up there knowing he is a powder keg and be put in a position to defend myself if he came to finish what he started? His advice to me was to dial 911 if I needed help.
And that, my friends, is why I carry.
As of yet the president of the association has not bothered to reply in any way to my email on Friday.
Did you get your knife today?
