Can someone go to jail for threatening someone’s life?
This neighbor and I got in a fight because he was abusing his dog. I was polite in handling the situation, but he went nuts and started cursing at me, then telling me he knows where I stay and he's "going to get me". He is a known gang banger. I'm scared. Will the cops do anything if I call them? Can they arrest him for making those threats? Please help. I know it wasn't the smartest thing to do, but I still will stick up for helpless animals. And I don't deserve that harassment.
