There is always trouble there. They are allowed one parking space so they park in the surrounding area. They even leave homeowners notes in Spanish that they will be parkng in front of the homeowners home. If the homeowner parks out front thery leave spray on the car windows threatning and reminding the homeowner. These are also in Spanish. Some tenants keep leases so that when the farm workers show up they also have a place to live. Sometimes three families or 8-10 singles per apartment. I makes for hostile Americans. I bought a house in that area and sold it in 8 months. Bad area. The apts are a little better than triple nickle but not by much. In order, Dunton, 555 Matmore, Muier st apts, 1280 Matmor, Lone Palm, they all need a clean up.

If I lived there and somebody did that to me, they would not have a car any longer to park in front of my house nor would they have a head to think with because I would kick it all the way up their behind. Why would you allow them to scare you like this by you simply moving you are giving in and they win and you lose. Perhaps one homeowner did get pissed and that is why we have a burned car, there is always hope that this town is not full of a bunch of looser who turn and run.

The loosers are the people who are detereating the quality of life in Woodland. Not the people that make a choice to relocate, simply because thay are looking for a better quality of life. Have you ever lived in a Ghetto?

Nope. Didn't tuck my tail in and get biatched. When I get angry I can feel the heat rise from my feet to the top of my head. They never parked in front of my place again. I have many arrests under my belt and can not afford to be too risky with trouble. I am very wise on how and when I plan pay backs.

First of all I am not an interested party to any of this nor do I know the people whos VAN burned. The Democrat reported it as a Tahoe but I believe that it was a van. Second of all the van burned on the other side of the street from the Autumn Run Apartments. They are clean, neat and well maintained. I do not feel that the apartments had anything to do with this. As the paper stated it was Arson. If you are familiar with the area you will know that there is a park directly across the street from the apartments and then there is a house on the corner. This is where the van burned. It could have been some kids messing around, some type of gang activity or some type of retaliation. Only the people that did it know. Please if you are going to comment at least get your information correct.

That apartment complex needs to be removed... it is full of hoodlums ... to the first commenter below (who hinted that it could have been a gang, and not related to the apartment complex), well it JUST HAPPENED AGAIN, this morning, at about 1:15 am. ANOTHER CAR on the SAME SIDE OF THE STREET as the complex. That complex is known for harboring residents who cause problems for the quiet, adjacent neighborhoods. 2 times within 3 days, at the same time of the morning? ARSON, obviously. Something needs to be done about that complex.
BTW, the first 911 call for the first fire was well before 2 am, as I wasn't the first 911 caller and I called at 1:20 am.

to "informed citizen" The pictures I took the next morning clearly show it was a "tahoe" the dead give away for me you idiot was the letters "T A H O E" in sequence. Have one of your literate friends help you. I was awakened 2 of the last three nights by car alarms and vehicles on fire. The fence caught fire on our neighbors house and could have caught his house on fire. As for the "park" across the street most people call is a "school playground" as it belongs to the grade school. Before spouting out how other people are mistaken, put the doobie down and look around a bit
