The story says it is “government owned” apartments. I don’t know if that means it is subsidized housing. If it is, I suppose the government can do what it wants with wards of the state. This is why you shouldn’t turn your life over to socialized ANYTHING.
The government will screw you.
This is also why you should never give up your guns to the government. They think they can play with your lives at will. Well, sometimes a little revolution is in order.
