These apartment communities are an eye sore and a cesspool and breeding ground of drugs and gang activities, They have burnt down units with little or no progress in clean up. The residence live in fear and the most deplorable conditions with no water and sewage to date. They are being threatened and intimidated by gang members and local police have been ineffective in providing security for its inhabitants nor have they put a dent into eradicating a growing gang populus.
The management has proven ineffective and are a major part of the problem and have not cooperated towards a solution. Many who have complained to management have faced threats by local gang members inquiring as to the nature of their complaints.
