When you pay your own way, you can make your own rules.

I live in a subdivision that does not have a curfew! Nor do I have to have some group (NAACP) speak for me, I can do that just fine.

If I don't like my neighborhood, I will move! That what happens when you DO THE RIGHT THINGS IN LIFE!!!!

I waited till I had an education and was 35 years old when I first had kids!!!!

I have choices because I earned them!!

This is really not that hard, but not very politically correct!!!

I have worked at several apartment complexes (Houston area) and we always had a "curfew". Pool closed at 10pm, no hanging outside after 10pm, for the same reasons this owner has a curfew.

Guess what, NONE of our residents' rent were being funded by the Govt.

People that congregate outside after 10pm disturb the other residents with noise, drinking and in the case of this complex, drug dealing and all the "fun" associated with it.

If the people living there are not mature enough to have common courtesy, then you have to make a rule that forces them to. I will bet the complex has a no littering rule too.

As for being run like a plantation, thanks once again to the racists at the NAACP for making this and every other issue about black vs.(insert race here).

This story is not about black vs.(insert race here), it is about, does the landlord have the right to make and enforce this rule. The answer is, yes he does. Should the landlord make and enforce this rule. From what I have read, yes he should. It sounds to me like he has improved the complex and is now tying to keep it in good shape and a place where people will want to live, unless of course they are the ones this rule is targeting.

"Even so, the single mother and her four children have called it home for almost four years. And until recently, Hunt would invite family members over for dinner and a game of dominoes outside her front door."

Here's an idea. If you invite family and friends to come over (and there is nothing wrong with having family and friends over. Nothing!) and play dominos, how about just setting it up indoors? After all, its hot as hell outside, and you've got federally paid power bills, right?
Unless you *want* to be outside...and why would you *want* to be outside in that kind of neighborhood? Only if you are
a) looking for a new man
b) looking for drugs
c) looking for a new man WITH drugs
d) like being eaten alive by rat sized mosquitoes

I have another suggestion. If you're 25 and have four children (and I am not saying that this is wrong, as I was 23 with three children at one time) your children should be in bed by 8pm, and you can take that time that you would normally be playing "dominos" to be studying for your degree online so you can move out of that hole and get somewhere in life!
Please, prove me wrong. Tell me you're a nursing student. Tell me you're halfway through with college. Give us a reason to cheer you on!(and I don't mean mad domino skills)

As a black male I see nothing wrong with this policy. The article states the following:

"But Oakwood owner Joaquin Luaces calls the curfew "voluntary." He said it prevents non-residents from loitering in the parking lots, a symptom of the long-running crime problems at the complex.

"The curfew is to target the people who are gathering outside and drinking, smoking drugs, throwing dice and gambling," Luaces said. "What we're asking is for everyone to go inside their units ... What we don't want is a big group of people gathering in the parking lots."

This owner has every right to ensure non residents are not using his property as a hang out place. I am sure the owner is liable for the safety of the residents and he is doing what he can to ensure it.

The Sentinel and media should be ashamed of themselves for giving these people this type of coverage.

I guess if the rules are to hard to live by (move) It seems that these rules could only help put control on a problem which effects all that live there. My guess is that many are happy to see the rules to help get the crack heads out of there.

"police taze the wrong person" - always good when the cops need to use a tazer to keep order. You get tazed when you don't follow directions - or react violently.

Hey dummy - where do you think the state got the money to pay for Kizzy's babies and house? From the taxpayers like me - that's where. So yes, it is our money - at least those of us who pay taxes, unlike Kizzy who just keeps having babies by different absentee fathers and askng the state to pay for everything. Any chance that her kids will do the same thing as adults?

Former tenant can't write very well, but she did move out of the dump/public housing, government housing, section 8 housing or projects......the list of names goes on and on! It is all welfare housing.

Sound like "Kizzy" need to start making the right decisions or her life is going to keep going on and on and on ..........In the same trashy area......

When the gov'ment quits subsidizing and the entitled are now expected to earn their way, our country will be on the way to recovering the spirit of the people that chose to immigrate here.
Those people came for a hand UP, not a hand OUT.
Isn't it amazing that such a large percentage of the abusers have been here for generations!!!!

And they will remain for generations to come - why change when someone else is paying. The "former tenant" may have moved out of there, but with that attitude and circle of friends like Kizzy, he/she probably lives in similar public housing in Alabama now.
