I’ve been following yahoo more than the Lede lately, so it’s time that The Chronicle gets back to her roots.
So there’s this family in Brooklyn. Their home was foreclosed. It appeared to be a single mom and two kids, if I’m not mistaken. Well, this other man and his crew (family/son/idk) helped the take possession of a government owned home…
This is sweet and all…There are good intentions…but this still just bothers me.
How can these people even begin to start the trend of people busting into foreclosed homes and then getting arrested later because…I mean…There’s no way this can be legal. Then that would teach people that they don’t even need to pay their mortgage because they can just bust into another foreclosed home and live there…This, to me, is looking like the begging of the collapse of the real estate/housing market/house economy…whatever…/I dunno you know what I mean.
THIS CANNOT CONTINUE!
I mean, this is saying that we have pulled into the shoulder on the highway of orderly government and are contemplating taking the exit that goes to anarchy city…
And alot of the time…it’s the people’s fault that their home gets foreclosed. I am not saying that I think that was the case for the woman in the video, but people forget that shelter is more important than having electricity, cell phones, running water, etc.
America really needs to develop a habit of THINKING before we act…
One last thing: Many of the Occupy protester are protesting because of the state of the economy…if we are running around stealing foreclosed homes…is that going to make our economy better?!
