TG, I'm at a lost as to what to say. My goodness, a parents nightmare come true. Happy to hear that your son is recovering and may God bless him for caring for a stray dog. My prayers are with your family.

He wouldn't stay the night here.
One of his friends is staying there with him though, so, it helps a little to know that.
We did find out that the idiot did not get arrested We don't know why either. They told my son's friend that he would have to press charges. WHAT??? I thought they they were arrested anyway and then kept if charges were brought up? Bigdog, need you here on this one. They never asked my son if he wanted to press charges last night. I just figured it was because of all the commotion, but, they didn't come up to the hospital either. I told my son to call in the morning and press charges, since the dept. isn't open on sunday
After he calls, I'll be calling too, everyday to make sure that something is done!! The problem may be in his family knowing the law down here. We may be in for a fight.

The police department isnt open on Sundays?? I thought most were open 24/7? Umm yes, have your son go tomorrow to press charges, he was in no shape (body or mind) to make that decision at the time of his stabbing.
His family knowing the law? What does that mean? The law is the law.

How horrific! I can't imagine how terrifying that must have been. I certainly hope your son and his friend have the good sense to keep the door locked and dial 911 if the bozo tries anything.

We live in a small town - the business office is closed on weekends, but if you call dispatch they should be able to send an officer out to take a report. If they won't I'd find and attorney who's a real doberman and go after them.

The police dept. is open on Sunday??
Because crime and peril do not happen on sunday??

Texasgirl, Im at a loss. Not sure what to say here. There are so many sides to all of this. Bottom line is Im just VERY happy your son is still alive and well!!
But Im still concerned about him and yourself. I hope he stays away from trouble and stays safe. My prayers are with you and your family.

Texas..
I am so sorry..I Pray that things will be better for your son. I don't understand why that boy is still free !!

A friend of mine oldest grandson had a Mountain Bike taken out of his garage and someone saw the guy that did it. When her G.Son saw the guy across a parking lot he yelled at him while holding a hammer with the claw in his hand and only the handle showing. The gas station attendant called the police and her GS was taken in and Bail was $10,000 !! Attempted Assault With a Deadly Weapon ....ended up paying court fines close to $3,000 and the thief was slapped on the wrist.
