Long story short: my brother has been doing volunteer service in Kentucky (like Peace Corps, but through a church organization). Another volunteer has been breaking his stuff (cameras and who knows what else) and threatened him. It’s basically his word against the psycho’s, so nothing can really be done about it. So he did the best thing–got the hell out. He’s at home now, and he’s going to be reassigned to a different volunteer gig.
The problem: He came home on the bus, so he had to leave a lot of his things there. He needs to go back and get the things he left there, and I’m a little worried about his safety. Could he get the police or sheriff to go with him when he goes back? Is that something they would do? I think this guy is a real psycho, and I don’t want to see anything bad happen. I’d go with him, but I’m not very strong and I wouldn’t make a very good bodyguard.
Has anyone been in this kind of situation before? Any advice on how to deal with this?
