I'm captain of the neighborhood watch and have been working closely with the prosecutor's office and Joe and Vicki Watkins. I've talked to Vicki 3 times today and in their defense they have shockingly made some good headway with the apts. They've installed several security lights and started painting the outside.

good, glad to here it, but I am afraid it is not the buildings themselves that is the problem they are going to have to get rid of the bums if they have no income they will steal and deal drugs no matter what the apts. look like. I was by there today and seen cars pulling up and people coming out of the apts. and doing their deals, cars are in and out of there day and nite, they are going to have to get rid of the bad apples or nothing will change but the paint on the buildings.

Oh trust me that's going to change as well. They have 60 days to evict all felons and anyone with warrants. They are now court ordered to do background checks on any and all potential tenants. They have been ordered to have a trained onsite manager at all times. They are also putting up privacy fencing.

The court order covers that as well. They have to replace all doors and windows and bring everything up to code.

sounds good I hope they hold his feet to the fire on this. watch out though the last time he had a manager it was some relative of his so you can imagin how that worked out. I would like to apply for that job, i would work cheap and make those deadbeat life a living hell, they would be lining up to leave.

getting rid of the felons is a good start, not just the convicted felons but those charged with a felony and given probation because they have just not been caught lately. I would also get rid of the live in boyfriends.

So felons don't need a place to live? You guys are so judgmental!! I can understand the felons that haven't done a thing to change their life but there are felons that have that title but are no longer walking the path of destruction. So for you to single out felons alone is wrong. I'm a felon and have been for over 10 years and have never gotten in trouble since getting that title. I have been working the same job for the past 10 years and have turned my life around. I can also have my record sealed as I was a first time felon but just haven't had the funds to afford a lawyer. I thought about doing the expungement but I wanna go farther and try for a pardon. It wasn't a serious crime that got me the felony but it's a felony nonetheless. So some people that are felons don't deserve to be treated unfairly just because they made a mistake. But then there are the ones that make mistake after mistake and never learn. Those people get what they deserve. So before you single out felons... Think about the ones working and changing their life for the better.

I totally agree with you hun! I wasn't trying to discriminate against felons by any means. I'm just telling you what the court ordered. You have to admit that the felons at Franklin sure seem to be consistent trouble maker. But in regards to what your talking about, yes people can always change. And I congratulate you for doing so.

yea for you! but felons do not need a place to live if they are still unemployed, and living with some tramp with 3 or 4 kids that has never been married been arrested several times even if no charges were brought at the time, not even trying to get a job or better themselves, your rite they need a place to live, a cell is where they need to be. these scum have bleeding hearts like you to keep them in business.

why don't you worry about the working stiffs who have their stuff stolen time and time again, or the parents who have kids who get into the drug scene by people like the ones who live at the franklin apt. who make it easy to get. this felon goes to great lengths to say his was just a "little felony" well it was still a felony. it wasn't a mistake he just got caught, he aint sorry for commiting the felony just damn sorry he got caught!

Who died and made you. Everyone has made their own mistakes but unless you know the circumstances you can't accurately judge either way. So back off!!

I live at the Franklin Apartments. Some dude got drunk and put his head hey the wall next door. Knocked himself unconscious and we had his head to look at in our bedroom. No joking. This is disgusting and totally unacceptable!

Get rid of people who have been charged with crimes but not convicted? Ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? Get rid of live in boyfriends? A marriage test? People like you are pathetic.

We had a man and woman with one half grown child, they both worked and paid rent semi regularly always had an excuse why they were late. They were never in trouble with the law, and I can tell you when they moved ....... they had to be the nastiest three people I have EVER Ever had to deal with.I wanted to take their left over trailers full of garbage and dump it at the new location. That ended our renting career.

if someone is a felon but they are staying out of trouble,they work and they are doing their best then i dont have a problem with them...its the ones that are selling drugs,robbing,stealing everything that isnt tied down...those are the ones that need to go...and you can sit and watch the drug activity at franklin we see cars pulling up for a few minutes and a certain black boy runs out sticks his hand in the window and then the car is gone...this happens many times a day,all hours of the night.those are the ones making it hard on everyone else...
