The Petkovs are on the news again. This time, it's the husband. Between the two of them, Scott and Jennifer, the harassment of the neighbors does not seem to be ending any time soon. With Jennifer court-ordered out of the neighborhood, Scott is left on his own in a home that has been the target of a large amount of media attention.
While you cannot give Scott Petkov a gold star for creativity, he has allegedly been mocking yet another neighbor on Facebook again. This time, his posts were directed to a 16-year-old girl. In the regarding the report, he called her fat on a Facebook page he created. I'm curious what business a grown man has in creating a Facebook page around a 16-year-old not only to insult her, but updating it more than once.
I find it more disturbing that there were multiple posts mentioned regarding the social network harassment, let alone the page existing.
After following the Kathleen Edwards story as it unfolded last year, it was hard for me to believe that two grown adults with children of their own could take out their frustrations on a sick child. When Hans Masing of Tree Town Toys originally pleaded to the Reddit community from the heart about giving Kathleen an amazing day, I wanted to help out.
Considering I work nearby to the toy store and live in Trenton, I offered to be a courier for possible donations. Due to the overwhelming support, she was able to travel to Ann Arbor for one fantastic day. While I gladly donated to the cause, the response from the Petkov's was quite unsettling.
Even after her big day, the Petkov's seemed unrelenting in what they've done in interviews. The media attention that followed painted a picture of people who aren't the neighbors we hope to have in our community. Between Jennifer being accused of assault and battery, losing custody of her two children, as well as being prohibited by a judge from entering a five block radius from her home.
Haven't they learned anything?
