  1. So idiots break into their buildings instead of having a spare key somewhere, a landlord, or a plan for that? You break a door?

    This is civilized society. You’re in one of America’s densest neighborhoods, and the Unites States considers the very tiny lily pad of the North End to be within the most protected and well-resourced professional protection services in the entire world. Living within a mile radius of government center is one of the best places on Earth to have an emergency.

    Can we get a name and a mug shot, even though there was proper identification?

    Because there needs to be a warning gallery for the good landlords of the North End.

    Unless you have a medical emergency or are preventing death, don’t break into your building. Then you sit on the couch like nothing happened?

    My tenants would not fare well in this scenario.

    Oh no…not at all.

    1. Being a consciencious landlord can be a tricky thing. I would bet that if their was a list of bad tenants, it would be prohibited. First society protects idiots, so they will never learn better. Second, there are bad landlords. So who really knows.
