Background On Brainbridge
"I was on the security team that the owners (California) brought in around 15 or so years ago. The Hyde Park Neighborhood Association had a 2 million dollar lawsuit on the books and the owner were trying to defend by cleaning the place up.
"The problem was that local management was not supportive of the agenda that was put into place. We would identify the criminal element that needed to be removed, and despite what we were told, and what the Ad-hoc groups were told, no evictions took place. We would identify the drug dealers, and what eventually happened was the management found a way to get rid of the security guards that were doing what they were hired to do and protect the ones that were not.
"There were good people in Bainbridge then, and there likely are now. The problem is that the drug dealers and gang-bangers are running the show and they've likely gotten control over management and maybe even security. Until you can clean house, actually get rid of the criminals and protect the law-abiding residence, you're not going to clean this place up."
