A neighbor offered to display my lawn tractor at his place because he leaves along the road. He refused to keep my sign with contact info and price posted on the tractor. He also had it attached to this archaic monstrous leaf vac wanting to sell it as a package deal. I had enough, I told him I wanted the tractor back. He said I owed him. For what? He power washed the tractor. We were also friends so when he told me he did so I figured it was a favor. I wouldn't have even thought of power washing a tractor. I was going to go to his place in the next day or 2 with a bucket of water and a sponge, but he did the pw before I could do that. I'm not paying him for unauthorized work. He is a business person (choke), has no license, but the only thing he was supposed to do, as he offered, was the display the tractor along the roadside. It was not even on his property as he told me it would be. Two doors down where he couldn't even see it from his house.
Anyway, told him I wasn't going to pay for something I didn't ask him to do. He immediately ran to the tractor, slamming gears, racing it up a hill of orchard grass and parked it in his backyard and chained it to a tree.
State police were called a few days later. Police talked me into playing "the big person" by giving him the $50 he wanted. I'm on disability and I would never consider paying for something as frivolous as pw a friggin lawn tractor. Met this dude the next day with the $50. He wanted me to sign a piece of paper that stated that I DID ask him to pw, etc. I'm not signing something untrue. He got angry and left. Has a motorcycle
riding buddy present who is influencing and encouraging him. Want to charge storage fees now. He's trying to cover his ass for his wrong doings with this letter full of lies and me sign it. So now he's livid.
Long story short - he in his never-ending rage, KILLED MY CAT, who does go on his property. Guess so. He has cats and he leaves food out. Live in the country. This food attracts wildlife. He's already shot my cat twice, but this time he killed him. For what? Being a cat? It was nothing but for revenge.
I want to place a sign on the road with an arrow pointing towards his house that says "pet cat killer lives here". I know, I know, sounds silly and petty, but I have to find a release. My cats are my kids and I wouldn't be alive if it weren't for them. I have no fmaily or friends left and he knows how important they are to me. Can't get me for slander as I would not put a name on it. Left a message for him last night to return my cat's body so I could bury him. I doubt I'll hear back on that.
What would be the penalties if caught putting this sign up?
I'm already going to court route. This asshole was displaying my tractor for sale as his own before he could be served. I have to move quick for everything.
As mentioned, I need a release re: my kitty. Can I place this sign?
