“On the morning of Dec. 19, 2012, in a Torrance courtroom, Larry Delassus’ heart stopped as he watched his attorney argue his negligence and discrimination case against banking behemoth Wells Fargo.
“His death came more than two years after Wells Fargo mistakenly mixed up his Hermosa Beach address with that of a neighbor in the same condo complex. The bank’s typo led Wells Fargo to demand that Delassus pay $13,361.90 — two years of late property taxes the bank said it had paid on his behalf in order to keep his Wells Fargo mortgage afloat.”
“Passions were inflamed when a Spanish woman jumped to her death last week as bailiffs tried to evict her from her home. Spaniards are furious at banks being rescued with public money while ordinary people suffer.”
“A Texas man facing eviction opened fire on police officers and bystanders near the Texas A&M University campus Monday afternoon, killing two and wounding four before being shot to death by police, authorities said. The dead included Brian Bachmann, a Brazos County constable serving an eviction notice…”
“Justin Turner made a last stand at his Norwood home Saturday, but after seven hours of negotiating with police and SWAT, and several doses of tear gas, pepper spray and “flash bang” concussive grenades, the 30-year-old shot himself to death rather than leave his home, which was under foreclosure…” by Wells Fargo.
“Police in St. Ann, Mo., shot a man that they were evicting from his home after the 51-year-old allegedly opened fire on them Wednesday. Authorities had used tear gas at the St. Louis suburb residence, setting off the gunfire that ended with the evicted man wounded, according to police.”
Update: Here’s a video of Oriane Rousseau making an appeal to pass the California Homeowner Bill of Rights… and charging Wells Fargo for the blood on their hands.
Occupy Oakland reported on May 14, 2012, that, after bilking a family out of a home they tried to make payments on, Wells Fargo is apparently going ahead with plans to evict a mother, Oriane Rousseau, and her child from their home in Ventura today, despite her husband’s suicide over the home situation the day before yesterday.
