Palo Alto landlords Kip Macy and Nicole Macy wanted to raise rents so they tried to force their tenants out by what can only be called terrorist tactics.
The Macys, in lieu of going through an eviction process, cut support beams, shutoff electricity, pulled phone lines, had workers saw a hole in the living room floor of one tenant, stole property, and “poured ammonia over tenants’ possessions”
However, in a refreshing case of poetic justice, once the indictments were filed, their bail bondsman said their property had dropped so much in value he could no longer go their bail.
So, they will now sit in jail until their trial in April. I’m guessing their fellow inmates may have had considerable experience with scumbag landlords and will have much they wish to discuss with them.
