About a week ago, as you might recall, Charlottesville’s SWAT team had a seven-hour stand off with some poodles on Nassau Street. (They thought there was a fugitive inside the house.) They ended up storming the house, complete with tear gas, kicking-down-of-doors…the whole nine yards. Well, the house is a shambles now, and the city is putting up the owners in a hotel. In the meantime, the city hasn’t cleaned the house, and ServiceMaster is having trouble cleaning it, because of the danger of gas residue. The Progress has the story, but, of course, they delete their news after 24 hours. So, what gives? Why are we treating city residents like this?
