Bad News out of Savannah

July 7, 2009

Check out this report, which aired on Savannah’s local TV news affiliate, WTOC.  About two weeks ago a fire started in an apartment complex, Oaks at Brandlewood, that was inhabited by African Americans, primarily.  Apartment owners sealed off the premises and didn’t let any of the residents back on the property to recover their belongings, saying that the property was completely damaged and the building was structurally unsafe.

Rather than removing the belongings for the residents, Oaks at Brandlewood management prohibited all access and now the building will be demolished with the belongings inside.  Many of the units are only partial damaged, and certainly much of what remains inside is recoverable.

At night thieves have been rumaging through the complex and looting what remains.  This is a sheer lack of interest in the plight of the unfortunate.
