Default At least there's one story of people doing right

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/1...comm_ref=false

Quote:
After a bank issued an eviction notice for a home in Northwest Atlanta, sheriff's deputies and movers went to the residence to remove the people who lived there. But when they found Vinia Hall, 103, and her daughter, Vita Lee, 83, the movers and deputies decided not to follow through with it.

According to WSBTV, the women had been engaged in a long legal battle with Deutsche Bank, the financial giant accused of widespread mortgage fraud by the U.S. government earlier this year and is the focus of a $1 billion lawsuit filed by the Justice Department. In November, Deutsche Bank paid $165 million to settle a suit claiming that it had misled credit unions about the risk of securities tied to mortgages.

The bank issued an eviction notice for Lee, who had lived in her Northwest Atlanta home for 53 years. According to the station, Lee is set to turn 104 in three weeks.

"I saw the sheriffs, who came to put them out, take off and leave. I gave all glory to God," community activist Michael Langford said.

"Please don't come in and disturb me no more," Hall said. "When I'm gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to," Hall said.
Good for them! I can't imagine how anyone in their right mind could even think of evicting someone over 100 years old.

Common sense and human decency prevails.

Mark it on your calendars.
