    Why is this place allowed to remain open? It’s a gang haven and people are murdered there regularly. We shouldn’t have to spend taxpayer dollars to protect this place. It’s a known hellhole and not government funded. It’s a privately owned apartment complex. SHUT IT DOWN! Move the decent, non-criminal to respectable public houses.

    The Peppertree Apartments used to be a great place to live in the early ’80s. The good White folks used to live there. But you know what happened. Hickory Hill used to be a good place to live. Not today. You know the story.

    Good people and children are being held hostage daily, living in fear, because they are too poor and don’t have the savings or means to MOVE AWAY from the roguish thieves and criminals around them. It is beyond sad.

      Black thieves and black gang bangers is right Mama. Tell it like it is.
      Black on black crime in Whitehaven is rampant. And WE all know it.

    IF these good poor people would tell the police who did the shooting, then maybe they wouldn’t live in fear. Its their own fault.
