Here’s a message to all the County Sheriff’s: Tell the banks to f%*k off!
The sheriff for Cook County, Illinois, which includes the city of Chicago, said on Tuesday he will not enforce foreclosure evictions for Bank of America Corp, JPMorgan Chase and Co. and GMAC Mortgage/Ally Financial until they prove those foreclosures were handled “properly and legally.”
Imagine that: A lawman who understands that The Bill of Rights actually applies to the people!
The 5th Amendment, specifically: You may not be deprived of liberty or property without due process of law.
“Robosigned” documents violate that right. So does perjury in court proceedings.
“I need some kind of assurance that we aren’t evicting families based on fraudulent behavior by the banks. Until that happens, I can’t in good conscience keep carrying out evictions involving these banks,” he added.
Now that’s even better. Will Sheriff Dart extend this all the way back to the origination of these loans, their pooling into securities, and questions about whether or not they were in fact sold more than once, rendering the person who claims to be foreclosing not necessarily the real party at interest?
What if the note has been bifurcated and nobody has a right to foreclose? Sue to collect, yes. Foreclose, maybe not.
Let’s see lawmen and lawwomen all across this nation refuse to accede to the banksters demands until they prove that the law was complied with – up and down the line.
Sheriffs are elected officials.
The elections are coming.
We the people must demand that each and every Sheriff standing for election take a position on this – will you stop enforcing foreclosures NOW and continue to do so until the banks prove that each and every one is 100% legal, including all required transfers and endorsements, from origination to eviction?
