Here's the situation. I'm a happily married man with two young boys. I still live in the same neighborhood that I grew up it. With all the same friends still living here also. Well there are these young punks that have a problem with one or two of my friends and they're always stiring [censored] and trying to cause a fight. Now, none of these punks have ever went out of the way and even said a word about me but they keep harassing my friends and making the neighborhood uneasy. This past weekend my lifetime best friend (his wife is the town judge) brought his band out to play for us. The band consist of him another friend and 3 cops. Everything was going good, we had about 75 people show up to listen to them and all was cool. Then during their last set these punks pull up, knowing that they were not welcome. No problem, my friend nicely ask them to leave twice. Well, they didn't want to leave so we helped them into their vehicles. Bad thing is my parents were there and now they're involved now. My mom works at the school and she knows the punks and she tried to talk some sense into them. They (about 5 of them) were still trying to start trouble while sitting in their vehicles. Idiots, 5 against 70 /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif. The main guy is a young kid maybe 21 and has already broke his neck once, was cursing my mother but I was holding my old man back so I didin't know anything about it. They finally leave and everything settles down and they call my mom at home and curse her out. Then the next morning the punks parents call my parents wanting to know why their kids were not welcome and why my old man was wanting to beat their ass. Lets see, they've trespassed more times than I can count, hunted one of my friends down and beat him until he was unconscious, they come to a private party univited and they will not leave us a long. My cousin that lives in the same neighborhood has to work with 2 of them and now their treating him. I'm 28 and my friends are about the same age. We don't want to hurt these guys but if something don't stop its not going to be pretty. We're thinking of taking out restraining orders but I don't know if thats going to be good enough. I've never wanted to hurt anyone in my life but I'm thinking of how I would feel if these guys could never walk again. Any advice?
