A Denver, CO woman got a lot more than rent money, when she rented her home to a used car salesman, his mortgage broker wife, and their 7 year old child, according the denverpost.com.
“Before my kids leave for school, I drink a cup of coffee and meditate for an hour. This inward-looking time puts me into a current in which life is less effortful, less a race, less scary; I become calm, and full of certainty about everything . . . until the phone rings, and it’s my 17-year-old. He’s in his car in front of the rental house, and there are a lot of police. And a hazmat vehicle. Sheets of plywood barricade each window. Doors padlocked.
Goodbye, quiet certainty. Hello, fear and struggle. I arrive to find a man, crouched down on one knee, facing the front of the house, writing on bright red and orange cardboard notices. Lengths of “Denver Police Line, Do Not Enter, Crime Scene” lie in tangled heaps on the grass. The letters DEA are emblazoned on the back of his jacket.”
