I sent this reply 3 times, hopefully it will go throuh this time.
I have not been in contact with this person for months, she is a neighbor of the man that I am dating, she used to date him, now is very jealous that I go se him. She has been trying to convince him that I am a bad person, telling him that I am harassing and stalking her, when in fact she is stalking us, she sits in front of my house for hours when he is here, and follows me around, and even comes by my house looking for him. When she didnt succeed there she filed a couple of police reports against me to have me arrested so that I would go away, the police dept investigated this false allegations, but refused to investigate the false reports, I told them I wanted to file charges against her, and I was told they do not have the time to do so, and can not stop her for filing these reports, they are public and false, I want the defamation to stop and they onlyway to do that is to file suit against her, I also want to know if I can file suit against the police dept for not protecting my rights? Last Sept I called 911 because of her harassing me, they came out and no report was filed, then she called this man and told him that she will have to get a gun to use against me, I tried for several days for the officer who came out to listen to this message and even talked to his supervisor and they didnt care about my safety, they never responded. I just want to know do I have a civil suit? This is my reputation, and since she got me fired from my job, I am afraid of what she might do next.
I was not arrested, I stopped it in their tracks. This person tried this before, and I found out about the false reports on the web, I called to filefalse reporting charges and I kept being asked "how did I find out about the reports" I told them on the web, and I was sent directly to the prosecutors offce, and they told me that they placed a warrant for me, then I had to explain to them what had happen and sent several emails to have her investigated, for all of this. She lied to the prosecutor a few times and found that her allegations were unfound. So after 3 weeks I was told that no charges were to be filed against me. I then called to speak to a detective and he told me that they do not have time to investigate harassment, stalking and false reporting. This doesnt make sense to me, they investigated her allegations of stalking and harassment. The Detective told me that they can not stop her and may result in my arrest some day if they so choose to go through this again. So what am I suppose to do keep looking over my shoulder to see if I will be arrested because she wants to continue to harass me using the police dept.
I got fired because of my own stupidity, I got into her file to find out where she worked, she works from home and has the time to stalk me while I am at my friends house. I wanted that to stop as well, she did not know that, she told them other stuff about me, since the last hing that was told to me by my director was "stay away from this woman, she is crazy and dangerous" they would not tell me what she had said, and that she did in fact call my employer several times.
the most recent started on 6/26/2011 when she started calling him, telling him that I was stalking her and harassing her, just because she was mad that I was over there the day before, when in fact she was doing the stalking, so yes I called her employer telling them that she was stalking us on company time and to ask them to put her back into the office, so that this would stop. She then continued calling him and on 7/2/2011 I went to his house when she called him 500 times, and I spoke to her all she wanted to do was to tell me that he has other females coming and going and that he was cheating on me, when I told her that I knew of his other friends ahe got very angry, and on 7/18/2011 and 7/19/2011 she then filed the police reports telling them I will not leave her alone, that I am still calling and emailing her threatening her life, I asked the prosecutors office to pull her phone records and I received a new email address and she did not know it.
