    Really? So having Section 8 tenants means you're a slum lord? Really?

    A slum lord is someone who profits off the misery of their tenants...not someone who owns a building in a high crime area.

    We have only accepted two section 8 tenants. The first one was an old lady who needed it. And caused no trouble. The second caused A LOT of trouble. And the government had their backs over ours for everything. Also, I was not saying all of this is currently happening. But stuff that has happened. You should know that you can't control tenants. Sometimes you get stuck with bad people.

    You have a lot of control over the condition of your property, and subsequently, who wants to rent it. If you were bitching about an isolated incident that occurred in/on your property, I'd be nothing but sympathetic. But, you've attempted to brag that you've experienced worse problems in your rental properties than the average cop experiences on the job.

    You can't have it both ways, chump. Either you're renting property that is only occupied by the worst of the worst, aka slums; or you've exaggerated the problems in your rental properties to make a point.

    So, which is it?

    So, you consider that a normal level of crime that Gray Wolf listed? I don't.

    You really must live in a redneck riviera. Because here in Chicago area whats a slum is definately the last place you would ever want to be in. Maybe not so in the South from where you are from. We take care of our properties. So yeah you fail.

    Yes, its pretty common here is an example. Say a tenant breaks a faucet intentionally and substitutes the cost of having it fixed in the months rent. They are faking a receipt-fraud-they are damaging private property-another crime, and for the month's rent they substitute $180 dollars of the $800 they owned. Which is robbery in a way. You see the crimes add up.

    Your claims:

    Assault
    robbery
    Armed robbery
    Armed assault
    Fraud
    attacks by police officers
    damage to private property numbering in the 1000s
    attempted rape
    attempted murder
    loss of money because tenant would not pay
    I could go on and on.
    You claim to have experienced ALL OF THESE incidents in rental properties that you own. Then, you claim that you aren't a slumlord.

    I find at least one of these positions to be bull****. Either you're exaggerating the extent of problems that you have to deal with on your premises, or you're renting to a lot of criminals (aka: your property sucks and these are the best tenants you can get).

    I do live in a small southern town, but I work on urban crime issues, and have spent time in Chicago, Camden, Detroit, Los Angeles, Durham, Birmingham, Milwaukee, Columbus, San Francisco, and a number of other large cities with major crime problems in the past year, providing guidance on their law enforcement responses to crimes. I deal with crime data on a daily basis. I have a pretty good nose for normal levels of criminal activity within a location, because that's part of what I do for a living.

    My guess is...you overstated your list, mainly because you don't like cops.

    In particular, the claim: "Attacks by cops."

    Lulz.

    Your posts simply aren't credible at this point. And, of course, that's why you resort to ad hominem attacks.

    Did you not read my post about boyfriend's baby's momma? Apartment complexes in metro areas are high crime sub-neighborhoods. You obviously don't live in a large metropolitan area. Or else, by default, the Chicago area is a danger- and crime-ridden neck of the woods. Tom drives a cab. That apartment subdivision I talked about? He won't even pull in there. They sell drugs, have gangs, rob, assault, yeah, it's all there.

    Addison, IL -- population 35,000; white 75%; hispanic just about the rest. Median income $54,000; 18 miles from downtown Chicago.
