of course they want to eliminate it. just one more brick removed from the wall.
In the apartment building with 36 units I live in we had one guy upon moving out because he was evicted for not paying rent. He kick a large hole in the front door from both sides. Another liked smoking dope and were evicted as well and left the place a big mess. Another the police kicked in the door due to drug dealing.
Another was a hoarder who had a trail from the front door to the kitchen and bath. He stored boxes of stuff in the shower. Another started a smoldering fire from a lit joint he forgot about. It fell onto the carpet and melted the carpet and the plastic under the bed. A minute more and the whole apartment would have been in flames. Smoke very thick and black.
