I have a question related to the Lords Court article..it just struck me that I didn't realize you could contact the police when someone 'gives you the finger'. Reading that it was part of ongoing harrassment, does that mean the police keep a record of these types of incidents so they are available if needed for court sometime? I'm really just curious...truly..I live across town and do not live in that development.

As a resident of lords court and friend of many law inforcement officers both state and federal, there is no law2 against it. It is considered freedom of speech. The persons calling the police are people who think they are "better" than everyone else and filed false cdlaims about their neighbors who are people who have had roots in Wilmington dating back almost 100 years. The " complainers" are new to town from Wakefield where they did their damage and decided to find virgin territory to continue their rain of terror on hard working people.
