1. Call the police NOW.

4. If the police will not act, contact the AG's office for your state AND your elected representatives.
5. Go to the press.
Do not threaten anyone at all -- just keep acting, one step after another, non-stop. If he has some self-hating genes in there, he's not going to want to -- you are 16, you are old enough to do it.
CRUSH THEM. You are in the right, they are in the wrong, and this is America -- even if you are in deep South -- which I presume you must be -- you will win.
There is NO TOLERANCE for the behavior you describe.
Once you have won, then and only then, leave -- and go to another place that is more reasonable and moral -- something the locals where you are obviously is not. They are immoral monstrous slobs.
Jonathan and I have an infant, 8 months old now - via surrogacy - we live (deliberately) in a working class city in the Northeast (we could easily afford the suburbs, we believe in small cities). We have never heard a single peep. We are well liked on our street.
DO NOT YIELD AN INCH.
