This place is a huge eyesore. Drugs galore.Dropped some matresses off to a guy the other day. Drove in th back and within five minutes seen about. 5 deals go down. And was asked if i knew where to get some "thirties" Whatever the hell that is.Not trying to hide it either. Not to mention all the fat rednecks back there walking around with no shirts or wife beaters. Nastiness...Worse place in Richmond by far.

The landlords should be fined for their part in that slum. All they care about is their rent. The renters that are caught tearing things up should faces consequences too. Where are the police patrols in this area?
I agree, tear it all down and make the landlords pay for it!

Ballard Drive is full of drunks, bed-bugs, roaches and druggies but there are just a few people who are good loving people. The land-lord Charles is a slum lord. You hand him 500 bucks and you got apt no question ask. Since 2006 there has been murder, fights, car burnings, theft of auto, people stabbing each other and rapes even on a man there. Babies getting abused and one even killed. This land-lord just turn the other way. Ballard is worst then Turpin. Charles treats his good renters like crap and his bad ones like kings and queens.

I agree it should be torn down and charles be made to put the ones who do pay the rent on time and cause no trouble in a better place.

State has been out there several times over the years on the bed-bugs and roaches and nothing is ever done. the state refuses now to pick the furniture from there that is thrown out.

Something needs to be done about this place its a disgrace to Richmond!

If you close it down, where will my and my people live? Where will we be able to buy our cocaine and pain pills? Where will I pick up the hookers at? If you don't like it, then don't come down here. That's right stay away. You must be stupid if you keep coming back.

SCHOOL is why i have to come by there everyday! My children go to school there and that is another thing. Innocent children play in the playground while your kind is cussing, selling and doing your drugs. Grown ass men walking around like they are pimp daddys of America. One of these days there is going to be a shooting and one of those school children are going to get hurt.

Honey I'm not stupid because I'm not the one who lives there. I have class not a drug problem and I do not have to sell my body to pay the rent.

If they " TEAR" it down you wont have a roof over your head dumbass. Even so, let them tear it down and when they infest the next sh*thole in Richmond tear it down. Then eventually Richmond will be cleansed of these places. You'll have a bunch of bed bug infested homlesss druggies but we can just ship them to the Army Depot and have them destroyed with the mustard gas.

That would be so easy to just close our eyes and forget the problems exsist. Mean while more children are getting bitten by the bed bugs and expose to all kinds of diseases, pollution and the violence. Where is the voice for the innocent children? Then we wonder why kids are getting on drugs, pregnant and jailed. People like you rather turn the other way and not deal with the problem all because your afraid one of them may be your neighbor some day. This world has come to hell in a hand basket. People like yourself is why we have places like Ballard Drive.

They need to do something about that place and just keep ignoring the problem is only going to cause more problems.

nope that is not what I am freaking saying at all. What I am saying is that it doesn't matter they are the way they are no matter where they live, so if they have to move who knows where they will move to and bring all their drama and bugs. At least right now we all know not to move or go to ballard. I agree something needs to be done, but bull doing will not help because they will do what they are doing somewhere else. How about a cop sit over there 24 7 maybe or Charles needs to get a termite company to get rid of the bug and mice. maybe charles the owner should be reported for the way Ballard drive is so filthy.

Charles has been reported and they do nothing. Some people say that Charles and his family know people and that is why they get away with the crap that he gets away with. Charles paying for a termite company that is a joke. They use to mix water with already water down bug killer. They need to round up all the druggies and put their asses in rehab and put all the dealers in jail. The city of Richmond cleaned up Turpin it is time to clean up Ballard. Ballard is the new Turpin.

This article is another reason why Ballard should be torn down and bring my point that children are not safe to live on Ballard Dr. None of the apartments are even safe for animals to live in much less babies.
