“Never let ANYONE inside of yo’ crib”- Odell my neighbor. I see this crackhead action all the time. One girl comes over complaining..”I am homeless now.” Eh she is a idiot, and I am a fool myself to even have let her inside my door to tell her story.
What happened was the girl got some money from her school financial aid. She moved out from the apartment downstairs, which is a bunch of crackheads, to get away from it all. She got herself set up, got dish internet.
One problem was that she let her “dreamboat” Shorty move in, even put him on her lease (He’s on parole..federal parole.). To make a long story short, he moved his crackhead buddies in, beat the crap out of her, literally threw her out of the house, and even kicked the shit out of her little dog.
The cops and Landlord will do nothing, since she put him on the lease. In short they do nothing. Her legs, face and head are bruised up, but I have seen far worse..and this isn’t the first time I have seen it happen to her. She’s also ripped off a few people, including Yours Truly.
This is the type of action and past history of most of the prostitutes who get murdered around here. Then KCTV “News” is beating their breast, acting like they are SURPRISED..like it is something surprising and shocking. “He isn’t a pimp, he’s my friend!” I hear this shit all the time. “He’s not so bad.”
Independence, West Independence, is the same way.
NEVER let ANYONE inside of your apartment or house. When you get ripped off, that is the FIRST QUESTION the cops will ask. If you answer “yes, I let them in.” Then THAT’S IT! They will do nothing.
This is why people are reluctant to take in the homeless. At least to spend the night. I let a few people in, but rarely. Addiction drives the poor. Whether it is alcohol, drugs, or cigarettes. They think that drugs are going to give them sort of insight, or revelation..but it does NOT. They always wind up more miserable than they were before.
