    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:

    Let it not be said that policemen do not have a heart.

    This is a vicotry for OWS? This is absolutely some of the worst political garbage I've ever seen. Trying to link a normal eviction to OWS is just plain stupidity. There's no proof that they had any influence.
    It's just that the police was kind.

    The title says 99%, not OWS, I don't think they are synonymous.

    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.

    Does this mean every eviction that is carried through is a victory for the 1%? Seems to me they're kickin' arse.

    What should be said is that they no longer have a JOB.

    Do you normally engage in wishful thinking?
