This guy sounds like a black helicopter wackjob.
Contrary to comment about black helicopters, this guy is someone who refused to accept reality. He is one of the entitled that the administration supports and encourages. Sounds more like Occupy Wall Street mentality to me. He did not pay his mortgage and the authorities were doing what was lawful. Trying to get possession of the property that no longer belonged to the occupant. He was ticked off and used a weapon against those who were doing their job. Sounds like his anger and stupidity got the best of him and now he will have to pay for the rest of his life. He will now have an arrest record. Not a smart move. But many will blame the greedy banks for the foreclosure and not the person who borrowed the money for the loan, did not pay his obligation and then got foreclosed on.
i agree with Louise.It appears that people are no longer accountable for their decisions and actions. No one forced this man to buy the house. Many people lose homes, jobs, fortunes, and they make a decision: either blame the system, or pull up their socks and start afresh and walk proud with the experience and knowledge they gained. The authorities don't suddenly knock on your door in the middle of the night to evict you. There was plenty of time to assess, and take alternate action, make other plans, reach out to friends, family, the social safety net, whatever. What a foolish and dangerous decision this man made.Luckily no one was injured, or worse, killed.
