TAMARAC, Fla. – The Mainlands 3 in Tamarac used to be a very quiet senior community, packed with retirees looking to enjoy their twilight years.

But now, because of problems with the homeowner's association, it has become a place where profanity-laced screaming matches are commonplace and where a violent outburst recently broke out, much of it on video.

"Every day is hell in this community," said one resident.

A large number of residents gathered the necessary signatures to vote out the president and vice president, but they won't allow a vote, even refusing to hold scheduled meetings.

The fight is now also being waged in the courthouse.
