The welfare checks should pay the rent and not used to buy crack and Night Train.

I'm no professional, but I take a more neutral stance here.

Landlords always get the deficit of the doubt from courts, but why on earth were the tenants not wise enough to demand the writing of a lease? You need to have those contracts in order to have the higher legal standing. The landlord also needed to take those eviction steps immediately when the payments stopped coming in.

Seems like everyone here was making bad decisions--especially the not paying part--and the landlord is was at her wits end.

I agree. I think I said "Black Trash" because they seemed pretty fine with the fact that they owed back rent. There were a confusing number of people around that seemed like family ect. And they seemed to act as if they were somehow justified by this property owner being at their wits end. I assume that she was pushed to this point. While she is clearly wrong and not doing things legally, the tenants seem to be enjoying it to an extent, or at least seem to have experience dealing with similar. Also, what is up with the suit of armor and the crusader figurine? There are layers of weirdness here.
