  • What portion of those section 8 apt. residents work or are retired? If it’s less than 50%, tear them down for owner-occupied efficiency units for single adults, no unmarried couples or kids. Etc etc.

      • Well according to the law you are wrong buddy. Alachua County Human Rights Ordinance, Chapter 111 of the Alachua County Code stats effective September 1, 2021, a landlord or any agent of a landlord: May not disqualify or refuse to rent to Section 8 voucher holders on the basis of their status as a voucher holder. KNOW THE LAW BEFORE YOU SPEAK NONE SENSE!

        • 151 isnt the pork an bean project or the Sherrwood apt . Those are mostly sec 8 eitherway poor doesn’t mean no morals.evil is everywhere.

  • I am assuming black on black shooting what I don’t understand is why blm doesn’t get in involved? If they truly cared about black lives they would be all over this. Dam I forgot the only time they get involved is when law enforcement is involved that way they get more money

    • Worried about the wrong thing. This were kids. And he was The only child of a successful nurse!! What they need to do is stop letting people use fake names on here and let everyone see who’s writing the comments!! You won’t have anything to say then. And we will if yours matter then!! Don’t hide. Show who u are.

  • Section 8 housing….soon to be coming to a neighborhood near you….if the commissioners have the intersectional way.

    • Go live in HAILE PLANTATION with all your people then. Alachua County Human Rights Ordinance, Chapter 111 of the Alachua County Code stats effective September 1, 2021, a landlord or any agent of a landlord: May not disqualify or refuse to rent to Section 8 voucher holders on the basis of their status as a voucher holder.

  • If they started allowing section 8 over there, it’s over. The whole place will be obliterated by criminals in less than a year. Too bad. It was a nice place.

    • WELL GO LIVE IN HAILE PLANTATION RICHY RICH. WE DON’T WANT YOU RACIST AROUND US REGULAR FOLKS ANYWAY. PEACE OUT BUDDY. Here’s a little fun fact for you. Alachua County Human Rights Ordinance, Chapter 111 of the Alachua County Code stats effective September 1, 2021, a landlord or any agent of a landlord: May not disqualify or refuse to rent to Section 8 voucher holders on the basis of their status as a voucher holder. KNOW THE LAW BEFORE YOU SPEAK NONE SENSE. You rednecks feel soooooo entitled.

      • Hey Bob, does the Alachua County code you quote, include properties inside municipalities? The code may only apply to unincorporated Alachua County.

          • I agree with you, and I do think the code should apply, not only county wide, but beyond. I just wanted to bring the limitations of the code to everyone’s attention. Most Alachua county codes do not cross municipal boundaries. If, in this case they do, then better for those in need of housing.

      • I feel bad for those close to you if you are as hateful to them like you are to others you don’t know! SMH

        “WE DON’T WANT YOU RACIST AROUND US REGULAR FOLKS ANYWAY.”

        “You rednecks feel soooooo entitled.”

        Try treating others the way you want to be treated!

      • “Go live in Haile” Please! Why don’t people get their crap together? Why do law abiding citizens have to live in fear or be unsafe in their own neighborhoods because some junkie needs his fix or someone is constantly unable to follow the law?

  • The Alachua Police Dept just got accreditation last week. This is Alachua’s first accredited shooting. Everyone knows accredited shootings are so much higher class than unaccredited shootings, and Alachua is nothing if not a high class place.

  • “At this time, there is no threat to the public or the surrounding area.” ???
    But the gun responsible for these gun crimes is still on the loose–Where will it strike next?

    • I think one of the “victims” was the shooter. I read in another article that there was no “suspect” to be found.

  • A young Man is dead with a family that loves him haters be aware God will have the last say! I pray for the family of this young educated young man. Angel RIP I know your in heaven ❤❤❤
