    Hartford police say man decapitated landlord during rent dispute, claimed 'sovereign' status
    Accused killer refused public defender at arraignment

    A Connecticut man decapitated his landlord with a sword during a dispute over unpaid rent, authorities said.

    Hartford police responded to a 911 call the morning of July 25 from landlord Victor King, who said his roommate, Jerry Thompson, had been waving a Samurai sword at him, according to the Hartford Courant.

    The pair was arguing about Thompson’s overdue rent, with King telling Thompson he had to move out if he couldn't pay.

    The following morning, police received calls from King’s friends who were concerned for his safety after they couldn't reach him.

    Officers forced their way into King’s home later that afternoon and found his body slashed and covered in bedding, with blood everywhere.

    'Sovereign citizen' is a good one. Every illegal alien should memorize that one. 'It was just a white guy who refused to give me my reparation pre-payment' will get him some consideration from BLM. 'It was just another capitalist suppressing the underprivileged' would be good for commie sympathy. 'He never fixed my stopped up toilet' will get him sympathy from every renter in America.

    He'll soon be the next riot excuse poster child.

    As someone who rents a house out to strangers this is very scary. I have a great tenant living there now and I hope he stays there and keeps paying rent for a very long time.

    that's a 2 way street.

    what i mean is, here in my area, investors buy up property, maybe fix it up, or rent as-is.

    many of those landlords, become derelict in paying the water bill, or sewer bill, and the water gets shut off. i have personally seen the tenants next door to me, have to pony up well over $1,000 to get the water turned back on.

    you may be a great landlord, but i can assure you that here, they buy and sell at the drop of a hat, and you never know who owns the property and IF they are going to pay the water/sewer bills.

    another investor-landlord, ended up in federal jail, he was a foreigner sending money back home, which was later found to be going to some sort of terrorist country.

    no mortgage payments, the bank went over, boarded up the house ALL the windows on the first floor, (of a 3 family house) and only ONE DOOR was left open for the tenants to get out!!!!!!

    What, you expect the landlord to pay for utilities!? It does not work that way on my leases. The tenant pays for his own, electric, fuel oil. I happen to have a well and septic system on the property that I own. The tenant effectively pays the water bill when he pays his electric bill. If problems develop with the well or sewage systems. It's my responsibility to get that fixed in a timely manner. I have rented this property three different families over the past dozen years. All of them asked to extend the lease. One prior tenant was a pain in the glutious maximums, demanding through her lawyer that I address and comply to all her demands within 24 hours. I answered her lawyer's letter with a one word letter. I attached a sheet of paper to his request with the word "No." printed on it and signed it. I never heard from that lawyer again. I guess they were trying to intimidate me? When she requested an extension on the lease, I refused her. I looked over the house with a fine tooth comb and found reasons not to return her deposit. I have returned the deposit money on prior tenants. I had it rented to a new tenant within a month.

    Second "black guy with a sword" attack I have seen in the news today.

    A sovereign has to be considered crazy by default. There is no rational way to get to their belief system.

    Looks like the 60+ years of "you're a victim of an 'unjust' and 'racist' system" that a certain segment of the population gets beaten into their heads EVERY day has finally come to a head....oops....sorry.

    That 'victim of a racist system' looks pretty ticked off. Maybe he just wanted to get a-head in life...oh...sorry again


    Bitter angry people are the reason I always carry.
