    This man was my sister, Diana Depolis, ex husband. There were multiple police reports for months about the threats and none of them were taken seriously. Since when is making death threats legal or something to shrug off. This would not have happened if we didnt have a legal system that protects the predators rights over the normal citizens who just want to live a peaceful existence.
