Letter: Waiting for my justice
I have lived in Yuba County for most of my life. In December, I was robbed.
The sheriff's deputy that came out made excuses why he wouldn't get any fingerprints and repeated a comment that I had made to my then neighbors.
I called him back to let him know that I had heard my neighbor's son had my property for sale. The female deput who came out with him said with an aggressive tone that it was tweekers that robbed me. I'm leaving for work and I'm worried about my house being broken into, so I call the sheriff's non-emergency phone. I told the dispatcher I wanted to put my house on close patrol.
She asked if it was a life-or-death emergency, and when I said no, she hung up on me. I came home from work one day and found the evicted tenants that were my neighbors parked on the back of my property in a very large motorhome. I evicted them. I came home from work again and found a fence being built by a contractor on my property over 5 feet and a very large pile of garbage put there by the contractor.
Again I get home from work and find fence boards from an existing fence broken out and the contractor's truck leaving.
I called the sheriff again and said that I wanted to press charges against the contractor for the damages. I was told by the sheriff that some of my property would be returned.
To date, I have received nothing but harassment and vandalism. I feel that there are some who will only protect the criminals. Where is justice for the working man? I have not seen it yet.
