The police did NOT violate the property rights" of anyone. That is factually false. Let's at least get the amoral platitude of absolute property rights accurate. The police has no obiligation of any kind to the property owner NOR can police enforce civil property rights - ever. The ONLY obligation and duty of the police was to the court, not the property owner.
Certain Police officers refused to act on a civil court order concerning real estate when doing so likely would have resulted in the imminent death of a 103 year old woman. Since it was not a death warrant, their actions (or rather inaction) was legally correct.
To be technically accurate, the police officers refused to execute a civil court order. The only offense they committed, if any, was against the court, not the property owner. Thus it is for the civil court to decide if the officers were in contempt of the court. If the officers legitimately believed executing the eviction order would have killed the woman, their doing so would have exceeded the order of the court, given the court had not ordered the woman's death.
NOW, though absolute platitudes are the favorites of the radical left and the radical right, the reality is that the police go to the judge explaining the situation. The judge then advises the property owner that due to the likelihood of death of the inhabitant the court is delaying the eviction until the appropriate social services can take steps for alternative housing. That's how it actually works and that is how is should work.
