To The Editor:

I have called the Sheriff’s Office several times in the last six months because of a neighbor shining a laser light in my bedroom window.

The police came out, but never went to the neighbor’s house to see what is going on. They told my son they would take us to jail if we called them back.

We don’t know if it’s a toy or a gun with a laser light on it and they never took the time to check it out.

They say they are trained for this situation, but the sheriff will not return my calls because he only works the 9-to-5 shift.

I called the sheriff on March 14, 2014, and nothing was done. I am tired of this ... you can’t take the law into your own hands, but something has to be done.
