    Sometimes. However, I also work for an electric utility company and I know what would happen to any Meter Worker Associate who went to a home and refused to turn off a service without reasonable cause to do so. The age of the customer is not any of those reasonable causes.

    Anyway, it's good to see that that policeman has made a good personal judgement, sometimes some order and law just can't good when implemented, and I don't think it will set any precedent as regard to personal property rights, but if Deutsche Bank decides to complain, the policeman could face consequences. Hopefully Deutsche Bank is smart enough not to.
    99% is synonymous for OWS. You can ask anyone what the 99% is, 99% will link that label to the OWS movement.

    Where are the hadn-wringers and why aren't they already paying her bills, so she doesn't get evicted?

    I guess that would involve spending their own money.

    A Victory for the 99%: Police Refuse to Evict 103 Year Old Woman (VIDEO)
    November 30, 2011
    By Mitchell S. Gilbert

    In these difficult economic times, it’s certainly not news to hear of banks evicting people who can’t pay their mortgages. But Deutsche Bank in Atlanta never imagined that the local police and the mover they hired would ever refuse to honor one of their eviction notices.

    Yesterday, when police arrived at the home of 103 year old Vita Lee and her 83-year-old daughter, they took one look at the elderly women and simply said, “no way.” Unfortunately, just the sight of the police and movers was a bit too much for Vita’s daughter who was rushed to the hospital.


    As the police prepared to leave her home of 53 years, Vita declared: “Please don’t come in and disturb me no more. When I’m gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to.”

    Here’s the video:

    How exactly is this a victory for the 99%? So the police didn't evict a 103-year-old woman. And...?

    The woman does not look like she will be alive for much longer. It's fair that she said to the banks that once she's dead they can do whatever they want with her home.

    In this case, I don't see why the banks can't wait a bit longer.

    Multiple home equity mortgages taken out on the assessed value of the home over the years. More than likely she'd paid for the house many times over, but those second and third mortgages will kill you.

    Ok, then where does it stop? I ask because we had a horrible tragedy in New Hampshire last year where we turned the POWER off to a home and ended up killing a woman on a ventilator. They hadn't paid ANYTHING in more than six months and also had not renewed the "medical account" listing for their home with us. At what point does NOT PAYING YOUR BILLS lead to actual CONSEQUENCES so far as you are concerned.

    Of course cops have hearts...but sometimes duty and orders over ride feelings...thats a part of what makes being a cop so friggin stressful...going against conscience can wreak havoc on your emotionally.

    True, but it's generally much better for the paycheck than refusing to do your duty over some silly emotional crap.
