  • d) 63 year old woman that had been evicted and refused to leave and 24 people, one armed with a gun, that intended to actively resist efforts to remove her.

    So subby, what should the cops have done? Does she get to live in the house for free? Should the cops have shrugged it off and said they weren't going to enforce the court order because it was unpopular?
  • You forgot about the idiot with the gun in his waistband subby.
  • In Before: GET OFF MAH LAWN!!!!!
  • I dunno...some of those old mountain ladies can be pretty damn mean when you try to take their prop'ty.
  • Why don't they just cut all of the utilities? They'll leave eventually.
  • Maybe it had something to do with the hostile activists, one of which was armed.

    Illegal to cut off utilities to the elderly and disabled.
    Even if they are not supposed to be there.
    She is in residence until she is NOT in residence, in real life and not on paper.

    /local/state rules may apply.
  • I suspect the whole problem was caused by the Colorado Foreclosure Resistance Coalition.
  • q) A 63-year-old woman who is a sniper and has created a hostage situation in the woods and is hiding to avoid dis foreclosure.

    Several problems here: 1.) It was not an actual gun; 2.) Police are [supposed to be] trained to react carefully, not flip out and go full-retard, and 3.) There's a seriously disproportionate application of justice here. If you don't believe me on that latter point, clock the response time of your local cops the next time your car windows get smashed. You'll be lucky to get one unit within two hours. This bank got a SWAT team, because God forbid some hippies make a stand and not get crushed for it.

    Actually they don't in many places. Now Colorado in the winter could possibly run some off eventually but MANY squatters will stay seemingly forever and live on propane and bottled water. But of course the bank should accept that forever in many people's eyes.
  • Never take a 63yr old lady lightly. They can be vicious.
  • "O'Connor says the deputies knew it was a BB gun, since he had been live streaming the protest online prior to their arrival. The Captain says his department did not know it was a BB gun.

    The protestors filmed the confrontation with the SWAT team members. In the video it shows the protestors cursing at the officers right before the officers throw some members to the ground to detain them."


    So now you know the whole story. The protesters deliberately provoked this confrontation and then recorded it. They probably tipped the cops off about the gun in order to escalate the situation.

    I tried to join the resistance but the Colorado Resistance Application Process was crap

    Banks get court orders, when the eviction deputy sees what could be a gun, they call the swat team.
  • In before asshats using words like "libs", "activists", and "juxtaposition".

    OMG! They threw them to the ground! Those monsters! And detained them?!? Clearly the end of the world is nigh!

    So when a deputy sees a man lawfully exercising his Constitutional rights he decides "Hey, I should probably call in a roided out paramilitary organization to disenfranchise this law abiding citizen!"
  • And who picked up the cost for this? The tax payer, charge the bank for every minute spent and charge them through the nose. If an eviction needs a swat team then he police should stay home.

    Let's accept this as a legitimate response for a moment, this "I think I might have seen a single gun, let's send in a paramilitary team" impulse.

    If that's the case, I have one simple question: What do we pay regular police for? If the flowchart goes: 1.) See something that might be a weapon, 2.) Call in tanks and guys with assault rifles, then why don't we just send tanks and assault rifles to every law enforcement call?
