Police With Eviction Notice in Standoff With Resident in Overland Park

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....
