I've been in court as an observer from time to time, and these housing authority cops will say anything if they've set their sites on getting a tenant evicted. They don't even try to lie very welThel either. Instead they've come to expect to be believed no matter how outrageous their testimony. They don't expect their authority to be questioned, not even from the judge.

You do realize don't you, that so many tenants do this same type of lying. In this story the illogical claim of a cracked dashboard points to this type of lie. My husband has caught so many red handed in the lies (thankfully many times it is in the rental application process). It is to the point he barely believes anyone after so many years of being flat out, repeatedly, outrageously, boldfaced lied to. It is a judge that must make the decision on who is lying. Now my suggestion before about videotaping and voice recording still stands as a help to all concerned.

Yolanda is a poor excuse for a reporter and has it out for CHA because she had family kicked out for illegal drug sales. Let her report about that, family tradition of corruptness?

Wow, just how uncalled for can you get? You better hope you have proof of that or I hope Yolanda sues you.

Unfortunately, the local housing authority seems to operate separately from housing authority police, and there's no oversight. When trying to contact them on possible abuse of authority issues they seem to have no idea about its housing authority police operations or what they are doing. The local housing authority appear to be totally disconnected from the police agency operating at their public housing sites. That's not a good thing at all.

For that to be the case, that is very bad.

maybe you should look into why Gulags that look like concentration camps under the guise of private detention centers for alleged illegal immigrants have begun to crop up all across America. The federal government is spending billions monthly for these private centers where abuse are rampant and rapes are the norm and routine

I hope this is reported on by this paper. I'd like to see stories. I personally know of a case of an immigrant from here getting rounded up and being detained in the midwest, then told he had to pay thousands of dollars to be released. Sounded very much like a scam to me. His friends sent the money and he was sent home! This seems to be vary common scam, and if that is a federal agency doing this, which it supposedly was, this is outrageous fraud and corruption.

Police, if they are corrupt or abusive do need oversight and correction. They need cameras and tape recorders to protect everyone.

I agree with you with the exception of a person violating ELC regulations. The problem is not with the person, but with the strict regulations in the first place. This is still America, where people are suppose to be free

When accepting public money in a public housing project, you are subject to more rules. Period. Now if the officers are behaving unlawfully, then by all means, they need to be reported and brought to court. If they are enforcing the rules of ELC then the people who accept the rent payments, and don't like the strict rules need to find someone to go live with instead of staying there. The rules are strict for a reason.

ImTellinYa, when I referred to the man's legality clearly I meant US citizenship which was questioned by larwilb60 due to his race/last name (obviously towards the end of his post he is talking about immigrants), not how long his visits were at the complex. If he lived there unlawfully as a US citizen or "illegal" then he should be punished for falsification.

The article stated he was there for extended amounts of time for three YEARS, and that he did not have proper documentation be staying there at ELC, plus he was driving without a license. I do hope the CHA police did verify this guys legality.

However, any officer intentionally, unlawfully harassing anyone should not be tolerated. But when a person is violating a law or ELC regulation, then the police have a responsibility to stop them.

payingattention - Yes the scammers can save the money, and probably already have more than those scraping by on their own with no public assistance. It's those who really play by the rules that I am referring to.

plsopenurmindb4uspk, the long visits suggest the guy was living there for three years, getting assistance with housing, illegally. This type of thing is rampant. Spending money on extras just isn't responsible if you can't afford the basics. That too is rampant. I get riled up when seeing the type of electronics in the homes of some Section 8 assisted rent housing. You buy beer, tattoos or art supplies AFTER you can afford the basics. About the dashboard, I too was perplexed at this statement of anyone having the ability to crack a dashboard from outside the car with a hand and a drivers license. I mean really! It is a questioning of the entire story when something this absurd is used as a reason. inquiringmind - when people are living in public housing paid for by other peoples taxes, then they have to be monitored for scamming the system, like allowing other people to live on their assistance, illegally. There is also a pesky little problem if increased crime in those housing units. Neighborhood watches are good, but not enough if there is a huge problem. payingattention - It is such a double edged sword for the people on public assistance. They are penalized for saving. Finding the magic number of when they can afford to pay their own bills is tough, and I empathize with that.

Like Shock said, Southwest might come here with incentive. This is a market not only for the Chattanooga Area, but for Knoxville, and Atlanta as well. People might prefer driving to taking a shuttle to Chattanooga for Southwest flights.
