Your landlord could be worse

The Macys, a San Francisco couple, bought a million-dollar, six-unit apartment building in San Francisco, and decided to move out all the tenants and raise the rents (this is, of course, illegal in SF, but the Macys are not the sort of people who worry about legalities).

When the tenants fought the eviction notices, the Macys went horrorshow. They cut out one tenant’s floor supports and started sawing a hole in his floor from beneath. They broke into another tenant’s apartment and stole $2,000, a Gucci watch, and a cell phone, and kicked the tenant in the chest when they were caught in the act.

Attention landlords: just because you own the building does not mean you get to do whatever you want to its inhabitants.
