Get threatened, call the cops too many times, get evicted…

Although Minneapolis has changed their ordinance to make it illegal for domestic violence calls to be grounds for eviction, this is still a very difficult and difficult situation. ¬†Municipalities with the law say that if the cops come to your rental unit more than 3 times in 4 months, the landlord will lose their rental license if they evict you… yep, it’s not the landlords doing it…

Of course, this can easily lead to innocent people being evicted, then with an eviction on their record getting a new place to live is really hard… so the problems build.

In my own lease there’s a clause that says they will choose not to renew my lease if I’m convicted of a felony — so, there’s that.
