Another incident with neighbours from hell. While doing my study at home tonight, my neighbour came to my front gate yelling abuse. He's yet again intoxicated and threatening to cut my throat while I sleep. His "mate" confronts him and tells him to leave me alone, the neighbour is now furious with his "mate". I told him to f- off home. He goes home and comes out with a sword. He then chases this so called "mate" down the road with the sword. I decided it was time to call the police cause this neighbour is quite unpredictable, especially since he's an ice user. I told the police what happened and they make sure that I'm alright. They then head off to the neighbour's. 10 minutes later, they're in their cars and leaving. Nothing's been done. I thought they would at least confiscated the sword. I know you are allowed to own a sword in NSW without a permit, but what if you try to attack someone with it? This neighbour and I are going to court next month because he committed assault against me (he was already on a bond when he assaulted me). I have to be there to back up the police cause he's pleading not guilty. I have a statement against him from a neighbour who saw him assault me. I didn't touch him back, of course. All I want to know is why they didn't confiscate the sword. My 13-year-old son was witness to the entire incident. This crap has been going on for years and apparently the police are powerless. Any help under Criminal Law would be appreciated. I'm going insane.
