Jim about 8 years ago Jim

I live near this school. After having a rock crash thru my window, mail box destroyed, garbage cans thrown into yard etc. Now I have a parent drive up to me and scream vulgarities at me. I took my concern to the principal who treated me worse than the above mentioned. She actually was mad because I told her her students and their families were violating my rights and damaging my property. This school should be closed and if nothing else the principal should be FIRED!!!
