Torturing a Deadbeat Ex-Tenant! No, the law doesn't allow water-boarding deadbeats here in Ohio, so I guess torture isn't exactly the right word. I suppose that she expected me to act like the last landlord and accept some silly excuse instead of the rent. I have told them that if I caught either of them actually on the property that I would have them arrested (and I have had some of the other evicted druggies arrested for criminal trespass). So, now I'm going to have a little fun!
