    I hope the Kalonji family gets some compensation from the city for the way the police handled this. I hope the police department adopts better training and methods.

    As for the neighbors, I hope the neighbors have recovered from their embarassment and have already made apologies to the Kalonjis, along with the rest of the neighborhood giving them a warm welcome. That's my ideal fix.

    The only benefit to the Kalonjis in filing trespass charges is revenge. The sweetness of revenge is fleeting and always has a price. In this case the price could be (but is not guaranteed to be) dissension and animosity in the entire neighborhood, making the neighborhood an unpleasant place to live.

    The Kalonjis surely have choices that will better serve them.

      under any circumstances in this neighborhood. It sounds like there's already dissension and animosity in this neighborhood. This is more than just an "embarassment" for the neighbors who terrorized them. The gun-toting neighbors threatened to shoot, were armed and ready to kill.

      One thing I've noticed  about small-minded racists is that the one thing they hate more than black people is interracial couples. They can't stomach the thought of a white person marrying one of "them" and having "mixed" children.

      The Kajoni's will have trouble in this screwed up neighborhood no matter what they do, so they might as well sue the living fuck out of these vigilantes and make an example that menacing behavior won't be tolerated.

      Those neighbors are racists. They won't apologize, they certainly won't give the people a warm welcome. What planet are you from?
