The only possessions I have stored there are my guitars, which are old and busted, but I already sent my best friend a txt asking if there is room in her new house. Hell, I'd give them to her 15 yo son if he wanted them. If she doesn't, a couple of my friends are always jamming together and one of them would likely be interested. I'd rather give them away than have them stolen, considering I don't have room for all that shit.

As for her stuff, besides the cash value, it had sentimental value. We're talking wedding rings, jewelry my dad got her for anniversaries (and my dad is dead now), and jewelry passed down from my great grandmother. Even if she could get the money from him, it would not replace those things. (After i called the police, I also called the place he sold them, and they said they were shipped off and could not be returned, it was a Cash4Gold place.)

But you're right about enabling and he does it because he knows he gets away with this shit, he's always gotten away with shit. I haven't been around, I went to college when he was 8 years old, I barely saw him after that. But my dad was having health problems of his own (lung cancer and emphysema, as well as work injuries from being a roofer) and couldn't be arsed, so he just gave him whatever he wanted. My uncle says Mike would just come into the bars where my dad and uncle were drinking after work and he'd demand money, and my dad always gave it to him. So when he died, he decided he liked free money and started stealing all the time. And part of it is my mom feeling guilty, too, yeah, but she's also afraid of him physically (he throws tantrums and is about a foot taller than her).

But yeah, I feel like I've done what I can do, which is mostly telling her how I feel and what I think she should do. She has refused to do anything, though.

She's told him he was kicked out before, locked the doors, and so on, but always lets him back in, and won't get a restraining order. I think something really bad would have to happen for her to do that. =\

She tells him to get a job, new place to live, whatever, and he swears at her, says stuff like "yeah, right." and mumbles to himself, tells her to STFU.

But I'm frustrated because it's been going on so long, his life is fucked up already, and he refuses to stop doing these things and also refuses to get any sort of help.

Now I can even remember times I was home from college, holidays and so on, I would get accused of stealing my dad's pills because he just refused to put any blame on mike. The day after my dad died, my mom noticed all my dad's pills were missing, and mike confessed to stealing and selling them, so it's pretty clear to me that he was stealing the pills back then, too. I got blamed because they knew I had done drugs before (like LSD, not stolen Rx drugs).

A young guy comes into a store with some very old valuable (or at least antique) women's jewelry, and the cash4gold people just take it no questions asked and then ship it off as quickly as possible? Talk about sketchy.
It probably wasn't "shipped off", but they just lied because it was stolen (and thus could just be taken off them and they'd be out of pocket).

Sounds like CrimeConverters to me.

RE: Ranting corner
There was an opinion piece in my local paper today about how creationism should be taught alongside evolution 'cos evolution's not a fact and just look at all the beautiful things in the world -- you can SEE that someone created them!

Gah! Grr, argh, Hulk smash!

I would've linked to it and put it perhaps in the Atheism forum except the paper has it under content you have to pay for to read. Also gah.
