1. Slumlords don't get arrested nearly enough

 

and they shouldn't have to kill people before they get arrested.

2. Interestingly, the landlord has not been arrested

 


One wonders what was the owner's level of knowledge about the various electrical "modifications" which had been made to the space by the tenants.

3. I worked somewhere that leased and subleased a lot of warehouse space seasonally

 

I doubt we ever checked to see if anyone was living there.
