Okay, this is what's going on. Where my son was is a kinda big community and they decided to make themselves a town and got there own city council and police department. It consist of about 80 homes or so. They aren't open on sunday or evenings. The county takes over when they aren't on duty. The county had to fax over the report of what happened and now the chief of police is questioning everyone envolved, including the idiot that stabbed my son instead of arresting him first. This is redneck country down here, no joke!! I'm taking my son in tomorrow at 6 pm to give him his side of what happened, show the discharge papers from the ER and get pictures of his face and the staples in his back. It is all backwards!! DH has told him to come home to save some money to move somewhere away from this place. We just have to find a kennel that he can afford for his dog until he can move. I don't know what is going to happen now. I'm not very optimistic about it either. I'm afraid that he'll disappear after talking to the chief tonight. Why he chose to talk to him first, I don't know, except for his dad knowing all the cops. Amber, down here, if your friends with the cops, you get away with just about anything. It's sad, but, true. I'm hoping that I can make this cop see reason instead of listening to a friend. I'll let you know what happens.
jp, this jerk couldn't care less about a restraining order. I already thought of that one. My son has friends staying with him right now, so, that helps.
Thank you EVERYONE for your thoughts and prayers. We'll get through this one way or another. DS stayed home from work today from all the soreness, but there doesn't seem to be any infection, I went by there after work to see for myself

Yes, this does indeed sound like redneck country to me! No idea what your son can do given he became part of this small community. I assume your son is an adult?

Yes, he'll be 21 on Monday.

We went and talked to the chief today and actually, it went better than I thought it would. He was very nice and just asked my son questions, told him to fill out an avadavit and come back Thursday to sign in front of him. He took pictures, but, the face is almost healed. I'm talking to the hospital right now in hopes that someone there took pictures, because, the county didn't.
I wish I had thought of it, I would have taken my camera, but, all I could think of is getting to the hospital to see my boy and know that he was okay with my own eyes.
The chief did say that it was assault with a deadly weapon, so, I guess he's taking it seriously, thank goodnes.
jp, I wish they did.
