Should you find yourself in a similar situation and wish to scream DO NOT WANT in Japanese, here are a few quick pointers. I am dispensing with polite forms because in such a situation you are likely to have no time for courtesy, and whoever it is you are screaming it at is unlikely to respond to it.

*Note: for certain species of yaoi fangirl, this phrase sometimes means this.

(replace Rossiu with whoever is GIVING IT TO YOU at the particular moment)
Or, in sequence, and in legalese:
(a) state negligence,
(b) call for judicial review,
(c) the tort of nuisance.
... oh God, I just fit them all under what I thought were the appropriate heads of action.

Well, not really, they can be pretty fascinating.
I know I look at life through law-tinted glasses, but SOMETIMES I DON'T EVEN NEED TO TRY THAT HARD:
Rossiu EXPLAINS THIS COOL NEW THING they call THE TRIAL
Simon and Rossiu do the whole Blue Ghosts in the Force Jedi trick.
MY HEART SKIPPED A HAPPY BEAT ♥
AND VIRAL GOES, "HUH, WHAT TRIAL? I DON'T THINK YOU GET JUSTICE THERE."
HOW CAN I HATE ROSSIU? HE'S SOMEONE AFTER MY OWN HEART. (and voiced by Saiga Mitsuki, whom I can NEVER hate!)
