Neighbor from hell

You think you’ve got problems?

Consider the neighbors of Don Bertone, who played police radio broadcasts, Spanish dance tunes and “shrill oscillating tones” at all hours of the day and night on external speakers in his yard, hooked up floodlights and six cameras to monitor his neighbors on four video screens, lined his fences with barbed wire, boarded up his windows with black-painted plywood and stacked milk crates and wooden pallets on one side of his roof.

Why did he do all this? He was being harrassed! The neighbors and police wouldn’t let him be, so in an ever-growing circle of irony, the more he felt harrassed, the more he harrassed back.

He’s in jail now. Seems that in addition to the above, Don also liked to collect firearms. And 3,000 rounds of ammunition.
