Urgent Rent Need
June 13, 2016
I keep expressing that abuse comes in many forms as we fight against violence and homelessness. What do you do when your landlord is an abuser and violent? I confront injustice whenever confronted with it. One thing I learned from the death of our friends be proactive. Please help me and my family move!
Racist Abusive Landlord
I have observed my Landlord/neighbor Wilmon Rogers displays what I would deem a very dangerous behavior. He has pulled his firearm out and pointed it toward some youth in the neighborhood on several occasion and the police have been called on him . This man has also discharged his firearm each time the children gather in a group.
This man parades up and down the street with his weapon. When I spoke to him about this matter he threaten to terminate my lease Since he is former Law Enforcement this is a real concern.
I was told by several members of this neighborhood a few years ago his family was a apparent shooting target and from that day forward he get upset anytime he see youth gathered around this area rather its across the street the middle of the street when he see them he goes and gets his firearm he shoots and then when the police is dispatched and he is questioned nothing is done.
Mr Rogers seems to display behavior such as George Zimmerman thinking he has to police this street only when youth are a outside. He keeps telling the youth their actions are escalating as though he going to hurt them. He complains of noise that is nonexistent, that the children he accuse of making. It seems anything the young people do in the neighborhood disturbs him. Mr Rogers is laying the ground work to take matters into his own hands. He's unstable.
Being a former law enforcement officer does NOT give him the right to be a domestic terrorist.
Threat of Eviction
My landlord's response to my confronting him was to terminate my lease. Now I need to raise the money I need to pay for security deposits and moving costs at a new place that my family and I can call home. I have Section 8 so it is hard to find another place that will take my voucher and also puts me at great risk of losing my Section 8 if I were to be evicted by my abusive landlord.

Please share this widely and help me and my family raise the money we need for a safe home.
