Drop Felony charges against an 11-year-old little girl in a wheelchair

Eleven-year-old Jordan was playing with children on a playground next to her Elementary school when her new friends invited her to their "clubhouse", an abandoned-looking Community Center with wood stacked against the side, allowing curious children access to the roof. Jordan was ordered to leave the property and in climbing down, fell and shattered two bones in her leg, which came through the skin. While crying, waiting for an ambulance for the bones she could see, she asked a lady, a member of the homeowners association, for help, and was told, "No, that's what you deseve, you'll just have to sit there!" After three days in the hospital, she has arrived home to find the homeowners association is pressing felony charges against her for Breaking and Entering. Jordan was in tears, protesting, "But I didn't break anything!" and that is true. Not so much as a window was even cracked. Help this little girl - she's had a hard life and dealt with an abusive father for her 11 years - don't let her be a victim of the system! This is unfair and the HOA should take partial responsibility for having it unmarked and creating a hazardous situation by neglecting maintenance on a structure next to a children's playground!

      A CHILD'S life should not be ruined due to others being slack, and not taking proper care of their property.

      this kid has been through enough... pressing charges is just a malicious pre-emptive strike to any potential lawsuit against the HOA

      Stop making examples out of innocent children who do not know any better! Educate them, instead of levying punishment THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND AND WILL NOT LEARN FROM. Idiot HOAs - y'all should be ILLEGAL...
