The Neighbor from Hell


I can't get over how scary this guy is. I'm sure there are some good neighbor from hell stories out there, but I think this one takes the cake. I haven't been able to get it off my mind since I read about it. AWFUL.


lol what a spiteful dick. my neighbor always mooched beer/liquor of me and my friend while we were in college. one time i woke up to him pounding on my bedroom door. we threw bangers tho so it was a kind of bribery payoff


People are really stepping their game up when it comes to crime these days. Pretty soon, a hero will have to emerge from the shadows to clean up the streets and free us from this terror. A hero we don't need, but deserve...


^^^ Think you meant "a hero we don't deserve, but need..."


Well, this was a bit over the top...

"We?ve just moved next door to a pedophile,? Mrs. Kostolnik told her husband."

But he's batshit crazy for sure. Very stiff sentence. Surprising.

Hacking of your wi-fi is a serious potential source of trouble.


"Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight."

The quote had to be manipulated a bit for the purpose of context, but you get my drift.


I always feel weird when I see a list of my neighbors' network names in the menu.


Thank god people over here can't hack for shit.


Hardline > Wifi.


So we'll hunt him because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark knight

Too soon?





Yeah, I'd have to be pretty certain before I'd make a pedophile accusation about someone I just met. I thought the kiss of their kid could have been just some social awkwardness.

Here's more court documents if you're interested. I think he deserved the stiff sentence, given the level of vindictiveness and the fact that he's done it before. Apparently the distribution of child porn charge together with the identity theft carried a mandatory 7 years right there.

Crazy with a capital C.


Is that sign next to the door of the plane really necessary?


Sentence definitely seems a bit excessive for a first time offender - I was given ten years for Armed Robbery! I served just under four years in actual prison and I went into a place with a mask and a trench coat and stuck a shotgun in someone's face...

Not saying he's not crazy, but 18 years for a non violent crime? Seems a bit harsh...


He just chose all of the wrong crimes. Mail fraud, identity theft, child porn- All crimes that carry a lot of time.

Plus he kept all of the evidence! That should double the sentence just on principal.


Don't forget the extreme stigma western society has with pedophilia. It was probably using child porn that bolstered the sentence heavily.


Were you actually intending to blow someone's head off? I'd rather have my money and stash taken than have some whack-job trying to annihilate my entire existence in every way possible (marriage, family, reputation, job and freedom)
Plus the child porn: He may not have shot it himself, but he sure drove up demand for it by acquiring those images, thus taking part in this disgusting racket.
I think 18 years is a fair, not even a particularly harsh sentence for what he did. He's also not a first-time offender either, if I remember correctly he got knocked for some other fraud before.
