well then pay him for 2 chickens. . .

So today went well. I was able to call at a good time and got the Fical de Bohechio on the phone. He said I wasn't to be involved because I wasn't accused of killing the chickens, Antonio was. I said, "I'm responsible for that land and farm." He said it was simple and not to worry, we are still doing our investigation and looking for proof. To which I said, "yes you need proof: witnesses, lab results from poisoned chickens and 54 dead chickens". I went back to Antonio's defense and started to express my frustration in the situation. As I continued, Antonio's soft humble voice greeted me - the phone was pass from the Fical to Antonio. I said when you are done please call me.

He did.

Turns out they don't have proof. Then they said that the damages must be paid and Antonio should pay for at least 2 chickens. Antonio said, "I'm not paying you one peso". Said Neighbor was apparently pretty irritated. The Local Mayor didn't show so they plan to have another meeting. . .
