Berlin, NH asked in Criminal Law, Civil Rights and Domestic Violence for New Hampshire

Q: On June 22 my nephew came into my home, I asked if he was armed. He refused to answer. He did say I should be afraid of

My nephew and his wife were going to lease my house but because of a disagreement with the pet section of the lease, he, his wife and his father came to my house on June 22. When I told them that the pet section was clearly written, they began to swear and yell at me. As this melee escalated, I called the police. The verbal assault continued, but they eventually left. Yesterday, they returned to invalidate the lease. My nephew, by his own admission, has a nine mm that he carries at times due to an incident with a local bike club. I asked him if he had a firearm on his person. He refused to answer me. I told him the reason I was asking was he scared me the previous night and he replied, "you should be scared of me. I'm glad your scared of me." I and my sister called the police again and left the house to wait for the police. This entire incident was video recorded. I also am disabled due to a severe stroke in 1999.

A: I am not sure I heard a question. It seems more like a statement. It also appears as though you are concerned about your safety and if you think a crime has occurred you may want to report it to the police.
