Jim, I to accept Section 8 vouchers and also find they are generally more stable tenants then paycheck to paycheck renters. Some of my sect 8 tenants are elderly and living on only social security, others are single moms with children, most have been with us for years. Dont make such a general statement without facts. Sounds like what your really saying is you dont want to live with poor people. Easy fix, move to Kenilworth.

You folks are correct and the truth is there is good and bad in everything. All race, gender, occupation, ect..... it's part of the deal we get in order to participate in the game of life. The issue certainly is not section 8 folks being gang bangers, In most cases it's fathers bailing on their son's that fuels gangs. I've raised 3 boys pay check to pay check, spent all my free time with them and they all know they have one person that will always be in there corner. The end result is 3 good men in there early 20's that will help not hurt other people. You certainly did get a reaction from people Jim.

This story is not about Section 8 vouchers. A person lost their life at their own hands. Keep him/her in your prayers.
