Cops Break Down Door To Foreclosure Protest House, Carry Away Homeowner

The cops in Wood County, Ohio have broken down the door to the foreclosure protest house and arrested the homeowner and several protesters who had spent the week barricaded inside. As you can see here, the homeowner was literally carried off the property by the authorities.

According to the Toledo Blade the homeowner had fallen behind on payments after being laid off. The house was foreclosed and bought by the bank at a sheriff’s action for $33,333, according to court records obtained by the Blade.

Mr. Sadler, who mostly has worked in factories, said he made his mortgage payments for 12 years after buying the house from his father but fell behind last year after he was off work from Dana Corp. for medical reasons.

The defense league involved in the protests with Mr. Sadler wants to see a moratorium on foreclosures and evictions.
