A week ago, my 8-yr-old son was at the neighbors' house on a playdate with their 9yo son. He was supposed to stay there from 11am until 1pm but he came home at 12pm which was very weird to me because he loves spanding time with that boy.
The other boy's dad started beating him up with his belt.
My son told me it was because the little boy was caught sneaking candy in his room.
The dad started beating him up on the back with his belt and while the little boy was screaming the mom was standing there watching.
Then the dad realised my son was still there and he stopped what he was doing to walk him to my house.
When they got here he told me that my son pushed his daughter(7yo) down the stairs which my son denied. The man started telling me he has causght my son lying several times. I assume he did that so I would believe my son when he told me about the beating up.
I called CPS on them and they saw the scars on the boy's body so they took both kids away.
That happed on Friday. Now, all of a sudden, someone is sending threatening notes to our home. I have received 2 so far- both saying how I should be afraid for myself and my family.
I reported that to the police but they can't do anything because they don't have any proof it's that "dad"
What else can I do? Could my kids really be in danger?

This is awful, you did the right thing. How are you receiving the notes? can you set up a video camera to watch when who is sending them. The police should have at least spoken to the man to let him know they suspected him of sending the notes.
If it were me I'd hire a private detective do surveillance outside my house to catch the person sending the notes.
