« Conviction of Suspect Charged with Brutal Attack on Dog | Main | 54-year-old Missing Woman »

December 19, 2012


I called the emergency line after an earlier small road- rage incident, I didn't turn an intersection fast enough for the man behind me so he started honking and yelling at me, I was really startled and all thou I was not going home but to the grocery store a few blocks away I turn at my parking garage instead, the man drove by and yelled more things so I flipped him off, then I continued driving to my original destination and saw the same man getting off his car, he jumped infront of my car and said I was following him, I warned him I would call the police and quickly took a pic of his license plate, he kept insulting me and told me how stupid I was and threaten me by saying he knew where I lived, at that moment I called the police. when he realized I was calling the police he got off the road so I could drive off, I pulled over as I was already on the phone reporting the incident, I stayed there until the police arrived. I understand at that point he wasn't a threat as he knew I was talking with the police operator and at that point I could just left but chose to wait only because I felt threaten by his insults and mostly when he told "he knew where I lived" police arrived, briefly asked me what happened, then proceeded to talk with him, the man when off with all kind of excuses and of course he was no longer talking the same way to them, in summary, the officer came back to my car to tell me it wasn't illegal to insult people and threat them and there was nothing else that he could do. In any case, I called the police when a hooligan tattooed big intimidating men that jumped in the middle of the road and blocked me from driving told me "he knew where I lived" that somehow was taken like a joke by the officers, I figure that unless I would have gotten into an accident at the intersection after crossing it on red after been startled by this individual behind me, or I should have called the police only after being assaulted by this individual that openly have threaten me. I figure t's all about learning how insignificant these kind of potentially dangerous situations are assessed by police officers, now I know that I should call the police only if I get assaulted by some crazy person that warned me that he would come and attack me as he knew where I lived, or if I hit another car after being honked repeatedly at a intersection where many accidents have occurred in the past in part because of road rage.
