For those of you that have reasonable fear of retaliation by "bad neighbors" here is an idea that can work....if your local LEO will play along.
You have an issue (neighbor) that needs the police to be involved. You have fear of retribution from neighbor. GO visit the police, explain the issue, see if (BIG IF in some cases) they will play a little game with you.
Get direct phone number to LEO. Stage a "domestic disturbance" at your home when the neighbors offending behavior is in progress. Get out in the yard, yell, scream, throw the garden gnome..what ever makes a public display. Meanwhile, you have called the LEO a few minutes before so they can "respond" to the "domestic", the reek of pot from the neighbor is probable cause (hey, we were at a 'scene' across the street...) to investigate.
MOST officers understand that fear of retaliation is real, and a hindrance to them getting the job done. I have seen SO many officers frustrated by peoples unwillingness to 'get involved' for worry of retaliation.
