    I made the lovely mistake of moving out to Brasswood Apts fresh out of high school because the rent was the cheapest I could find. What I did find was why! Crime is AWFUL in this part of town! I've even seen trouble out at the new movie theatre. Given, the cops respond quickly, but it's just a place to avoid overall....

    i have been over there several times and it seems to me that some do work but it's a whole lot of people that standing around with nothing to do. i do indeed thinks the landlord needs to clean up the neighborhood and get the peoples out of there that seems to create a problem.

    Everyone needs realize that even living in a house something similar can happen. Its just not as bad as living in an apartment.

    I go to work everyday an have to come home to the bull**** everyday. The landlord run no background or credit checks. You see the same ones when you leave for work early in the morning and when you get off.

    If I got shot while I was minding my on business by some idiot that lived next door, you best believe I would file charges. Teach them to use something other than a GUN to resolve problems while they are in jail.
