Police With Eviction Notice in Standoff With Resident in Overland Park


G
randma would tell me stories of the many people evicted from their homes and farmsteads in the Eastern Oklahoma hills during the Great Depression of the 1930's.


Most- although begrudgingly and often tearfully- complied.

But Grandma told of some people- faced with losing all that they had scaped- sweated and toiled for- taking up arms when facing the local sheriff with eviction papers.


So I'm kind-of surprised that what's happening below doesn't happen with more frequency in the UCSA today (perhaps it does- you know how crappy news coverage has become)...

So it goes right now- a resident has barricaded themselves inside a home in the area of 144th Street and Hemlock in southern Overland Park after being served by the JoCo Sheriff with eviction papers.


After all- the bank wants 'their' property back....
