No Allies: Denver Woman Says Police And Leasing Office Refuse To Protect Her From Hate Crime

Oh boy.

One Denver woman fears for her safety after receiving a handful of hate mail and managers at her apartment complex are refusing to let her get way, cost free. Allison Butler, says she’s getting racist notes slipped under her door and is getting harassed by a stranger who knocks on her door after midnight and runs away according to Denver 7 reports.

The first note read “N-gg– don’t belong” and then another note came that called her “N-gg– B—h”.

After opening these harassment letters twice, the woman filed a police report with the Adam’s County Sheriff’s office. Butler said she reported the second incident, but the deputy told her there isn’t much they can do. She also said they told her they “needed video” showing who is leaving the notes.

She then turned to her complex for help.

Unfortunately, she was told that they “can’t control” the hallways. She then alerted the property’s security– who said they gave the suspected perpetrators a “verbal warning.” That’s when she opted to move and they said it would cost her two months rent, no negotiations.

Damn, since when is being harassed not reasonable enough to get some dang help from someone with authority? SMH. Denver 7 reportedly has contacted the leasing office for comment, so far nothing.
