Is this the start of a revolt?

Sheriff Takes Law Into His Own Hands

These days, Philadelphia Sheriff John Green is best known around town for the law he won't enforce. This spring, he refused to hold a court-ordered foreclosure auction, raising eyebrows among lenders and their attorneys, who accuse him of shirking his duty to enforce legal contracts.

    We will shortly also be returning to the subject of Moral Hazard in terms of bailing out certain factions and groups and in particular why that WASN’T an academic point.

    i don’t hope so. That doesn’t look like much fun. How about not letting the cat out of the bag in the first place by doing something sensible.

  • And then he comes out with this twaddle: “My staff and I watch the suffering every day and witness the heart-wrenching scenes as families lose their primary means of wealth-building” What about a job?

    Looks like the destruction in the US is starting to generate change.
    At last.

    But in the mean time let’s have a bit more destruction so we can have some REAL change.

    Did anyone read this article. This guy isn’t saving anyone’s houses. He is simply delaying the process to give his buddies in the rest of the system a chance to catch up. Sounds like a bunch of sensible descent people all pulling together. Philidelphia (City of brotherly love) is earning their name, good for them.

    Its the typical sensational headline followed by the reality that actually isn’t that sensational. Although character on the part of a local official and the other officials is worth shouting about. Sounds like a good place to live!

  • Foreclosure sales destroy property values generally it aboutime they were stopped. Force the banks to take over the property and maintain thre houses untill the economy stabilizes.A memorandum on sales of foreclosed propery should be instigated.

    “My staff and I watch the suffering every day and witness the heart-wrenching scenes as families lose their primary means of wealth-building and face eviction.”

    So the thing that upsets him most is that the pyramid get rich quick scheme has come to an end. How about working as a primary means of wealth-building instead?
