First, this asshat deserves anything bad that comes his way. If he is such a tough guy that he beats his girlfriend, he'll do real well once he finally gets the prison cell that is currently missing from his life.

In addition to the sound advice already given here (situational awareness being #1 IMHO), I offer this:
Carry yourself with confidence around him. Do not shrink from his provocations. I'm NOT saying to escalate anything, but to show fear or weakness to a predator is to invite more attacks. Confidence and strength do not need to be shouted, but are often much more effective carried quietly.

This pos sounds dangerous and cowardice. Be sure to call the police and make a report. lister to GlassHart, she is a law enforcement officer.



Guys who hit women are a prime example of why women should arm themselves. The statistics of domestic violence on women is staggering.

After contacting an "leo" about your concerns, keep something handy like a
bat, rake, snowshovel, longhandle icescraper, golf club etc, & if you do not
like the thought of pepperspray... then think about skunk scent in a spray
bottle or deer or elk urine! (Be creative)! Or how about a paintball gun? There
are many non-lethal choices to choose from...But, "even touching" a person
can be interpreted as a form of "battery" & this can also include spraying
them with your garden hose/ hose pipe as the brits call it! Check your local
laws, but in my case we thankfully have the "open carry law" & that was
enough to deter my "worst neighbor ever" after he saw that I was armed!
After that, I obtained a cwp for future encounters...but thankfully my
problem neighbor moved to the next county soon afterward!

To quote Bruce Lee, "The best way to defend against a surprise attack is to not be surprised".
Always be ready, make sure the local cops know he has made threats against you, and despite some recomendations here, dont refer to your "George Hayduke" (author of such classics as Get Even and Screw You) book collection.
Do not antagonize this guy, if this ever goes South, you will want to go to court being squeaky clean, having never done anything besides reporting domestic abuse. Good luck.

My advice is simple.

Light him on fire.

But so did the peppersray to his face when he climbed over my fence to
attack me when I confronted him about teasing my dog! As he fell back
into his yard coughing, I yelled "next time it will be lead poisoning"! A month
later they moved to the next county & soon after that he died before his
42nd birthday due to spending the money on cat food rather then his high
blood pressure meds! (I knew more about them then they realized @ the
time) as in the late 1990's cordless phones were easy to monitor & record
with an 8 hour vidiotape!

LOL! they're still easy to monitor. I have a cordless headphones that I use on my desktop computer that has picked up cell phones and cordless phones as far as a mile away. I have a 200 channel police scanner that picked up cell calls sometimes. I've not had it plugged in for a whiule but the frequency range for cells has not changed for the major carriers in some time so I'm sure it still works.
