OWS Steals A Man’s House

January 17, 2012 by  

OWS Steals A Man’s House

OWS protesters who decided to occupy a foreclosed home in Brooklyn, N.Y., are victimizing a struggling father who was working to save his home from foreclosure.

OWS protesters announced last month that they moved a homeless family into a “foreclosed” Brooklyn home. The house actually belonged to a struggling single father desperately trying to renegotiate his mortgage, according to The New York Post.

“They’re trying to take a house and say the bank is robbing the people because the mortgage is too high — so contact the owner!” said Wise Ahadzi, 28, who owns the home.

Ahadzi reportedly purchased the house for $424,500 in 2007 before the housing bubble burst and the market price plummeted to $150,000. He told The Post he lost his job as a day trader in 2009 and couldn’t meet his mortgage payments. The man moved with his two young daughters to a small apartment while he was working with the bank to renegotiate his mortgage.

Instead of helping Ahadzi reclaim his property, the OWS group reportedly moved in a “homeless family” who were affiliated with the protest movement and have taken over the house.

    Socialist doing what socialist do. Very sad.

    • Warrior

      And that dude is one snappy dresser, don’t ya think?

      • healthnut

        This dude looks like he is a member of the Taliban…face covered…dressed in black…his buddies have their faces covered…dressed in rags. If this is such a great cause…why hide your mugs?…we know that most are Union Members…Acorns…afraid of retribution? Next thing will be the killing of the homeowners…real cute isn’t he? I think his name is Van Jones…

        • healthnut

          Look at his hand…He is a black man…why I say it’s Van Jones, the communist organizer of these attacks…with the money from the Obama’s tax payers’ money…

  • s c

    I guess attack dogs, riot shotguns and molotov cocktails are out of the question. How about the idea that the BANK might want to get involved? Are there no functional LAWS that cover this situation?
    On the other hand, I have it on good authority that NO self-respecting OWSer would dare do such a thing as move in without permission.
    It must be people who are ‘posing’ as OWSers. RIGHT? Besides, nothing strange or immoral ever happens in N Y. EVERYBODY knows THAT!
    Would it be right to point a select finger or two at the incompetents at the White House? They have a strange way of letting banksters do what they want, especially when money and making new friends are at the top of the list.
    Well, I’m sure it will all work out OK. It HAS to, as the OWSers must be protected more than the guy who is trying to do the right thing. After all, trying to do the right thing is so WRONG – if you don’t have the White House’s blessing. And, as everyone knows, OWSers DO have the White House’s blessing. So, the OWSers are right, the guy is wrong, and the White House god and his sidekick are happier than Muslim extremists in a shouting match at the U N. It makes you proud to be an American, doesn’t it?

    • home boy

      quess this case isn’t big enough for the afl-cio to get in volved.

      • Mike

        Maybe the AFL-CIO encouraged this?Just a thought.Would not be surprised!

    • sandcasstle

      Hey–when did B & E become legal? Just askin’…

    • eddie47d

      The burden falls on the capitalist free market bank. They sold the mortgage and the homeowner accepted the terms. The banksters are as complicit as the OWS occupiers(homeless family) of this house. Few who go into foreclosure get to keep their home so that could be a losing battle and a shame but that is the way the bankster system works. All parties are guilty of wrong doing including OWS who thinks they can legally take over someones home. The homeless family who wasn’t authorized to live there. The owner who bought more than he could pay for and the banks who had gouged everyone in these deals. Now if the bank wants that homeless family out then deliver an eviction notice and be done with it. No winners in this deal only losers.

    What a perfect symbol of what liberals are all about. Take away from the middle class working man to give to the “less fortunate” who have decided to live off the government instead of earning a living and providing for themselves. Maybe this criminal act is something that the obama’s can be proud of.

  • 45caliber

    This is an ACORN tactic and has been used by them many times. Their argument is that if no one is living in the house, then they have the right to place anyone there – and that those placed there now “own” it. The reality is that the real owner must go through all sorts of legal actions (money) to get it back – and when they do, the house is generally trashed. Many times it costs more to repair the house than the house is worth. The reason? Those moved in don’t own it and know it so they want to punish the owner by destroying it before they are forced to move out.

    • Les

      I know how I would be moving them out.

    • Steve

      In PA, we have the castle doctrine. Makes it much eaisier to remove home invaders.

  • Sirian

    Ah, so the COWS have been herded into a new pasture land huh? Maybe the police need to be carrying “cattle prods” for a change. Sounds logical to me. Go fix the fence and keep them on their original pasture.

  • Eric

    Oh, the IRONY!

    Wall Street Day Trader loses the house he was willing to pay almost 4 times as much as it was really worth back when he was in the raping and pillaging game, but now that he’s busted back to ‘regular joe’ and can’t pay the mortgage, and can’t sell it, he gets molested by the people who thought they’d be able to follow in his footstep and ‘rape and pillage’ for a nice comfortable living. I love this story! There’s more truth here than you realize!

    • vicki

      Eric talks about the raping and pillaging game.

      I don’t think that invading an pillaging someones home is a game. The owner was involved with a legal business with multiple consenting adults where they traded assets. The OWS people are involved in an illegal breaking and entering of property that belongs to either the ex-day trader or the bank but NOT them.

      To try and claim an equivalence is repugnant but typical of liberal thought and shows that liberalism might well be a mental disorder.

    • DMS

      Well said, Eric. The owner had taken the blue pill, but chased it down with the red juice. Much more truth in this story!

      How can you agree with the OWS in what they have done? They have committed many crimes, deficated on police cars, and now they force people into someone’s home and you agree with this? I see this country needs a different thinking and we really need to get back to being a Constitutional Republic and a Christian nation. Such things as this happened after Lenin took power in Russia, so why is it done here? Such actions are reprehensible, ignorant, and show no morals at all. If these people are the future of our great country, the we have to fight harder to make sure this does not happen. I think of what might happen with my grandchildren or great grandchildren. How will they live if people like this are the leaders of businesses, government, and the military? I really think that we may in terrible trouble inthe future. God help this country. Thank you.

      • eddie47d

        Yes the OWS is wrong in this case but so are the Banksters and mortgage companies who allowed this housing meltdown to even occur. If you want to blame the government feel free for there are many players and few who take responsibility in this happening.

        • http://naver sook young

          Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the policies of Bill Clinton also had something to do with it. Not all of it I know, but they didhelp it along. Thank you.

    • libertytrain

      Eric, I think the irony is that you display a willful disregard for another human being’s rights – and have no problem stealing that which was his, because you have determined his employment was not up to your standards – so you are the judge jury and sentenced him as guilty without a trial. hmmm. so lib left of you. Do as I say, not as I do — yepper.

  • Barbara

    Could the unbelievable conditions of home ownership actually be a govermnet attempt to own all the houses. Then what will they do with them? Maybe “spread the wealth”? Who gets the mansions? Those who support our king? Christ is our king! We must turn to HIM and he will be faithful to us.

  • Mark Dabney

    Years ago when I was trying to explain to a simpleton friend of mine about the flaws of the banking system. I was trying to explain: educate – take every lawful and peaceable action to change things – and his dimwitted reply [clearly he did NOT get what I was saying]

    “You gonna go to the bank and kill a bunch of people?” WHAT??? The ordinary rank & file citizen is not the problem – I would maintain that the day trader is more of a SYMPTOM than a CAUSE

    As for OWS – yes it is true that the Hegelian Left attempted to coopt the popular discontent as they have succeeded to no small degree in getting the Tea Party coopted into TeoCons. However, the disinfo is about labeling without considering – these are a group of disenfranchised people with some common concerns – they are INDIVIDUALS- and I have not personally witnessed them stooping to insults myself – I agree with their pledge more than I disagree with it – and they are just as vulnerable to manipulation as is the Hegelian Right

  • ladykroft

    I’d be talking to that family who was in my house, with my shotgun as interpreter.

    • 45caliber

      This is in New York. It is illegal to own a gun there, much less carry it. Just having one in your house without permission is illegal there.

  • http://Boblivingstonletter Gottaplenty

    You Betcha,, I have 357 reasons right here in ma steady hand that will explain why you shouldn’t be in my house…

    • ladykroft

      Gottaplenty…If there were more people who thought like you and I there wouldn’t be things like this happening.

    • Buster the Anatolian

      Remember this is in New York where guns are evil things that no one should own. Unless of coure you are rich, the police, or a criminal.

      • 45caliber


        You forgot politicians. They and the police have about 90% of all permits there. It is almost impossible to get one if you aren’t one or the other. It is ILLEGAL to even OWN one there without a permit!

        • Buster the Anatolian

          I was including them in the rich I guess.

      • ladykroft

        Well, then that would be against the 2nd Amendment, and I guarantee that the governor is carrying a weapon and so are his bodyguards, therefor setting precedence. Any law left unchallenged will constitute acceptance.

  • justice and fairness

    my question is if he is trying to renegotiate with the bank why did he move out in the first place?

    • ladykroft

      The bank must have started foreclosure, and that takes a while to complete.They move you out in the meantime. You have all rights to negotiate a new contract, new loan or pay it off in full during the process.

  • Scarefacesquirrel.

    Remington 870. Problem solved.

  • healthnut

    I wonder what they are using to keep that house warm? Candles?…wood in the middle of the floor?…How about water? This picture depicts more than a family in there…the porch is full…a nice little molotov cocktail could be send their way…poor things…they have to keep warm…

  • FWO21

    People look down on the TEA party, but they weren’t doing this kind of stuff. Just completely criminal, I say.

  • stephen russell

    Cant they use some Idle unoccupied home instead.

    • http://Boblivingstonletter Gottaplenty

      Stephen old boy,,, it doesnt belong to them, didnt anyone ever teach you that you dont even trespass on other peoples property, sometimes you are mistaken for an intruder and could ,as i would do ,, get shot

  • http://Boblivingstonletter Gottaplenty

    Shurly some of those occupiers, OWers or any stupid enough to be there have a home someplace ,probably in their parents basement, Then gather up those unfortunate homeless and take them there while the ow ,s are working so hard away from home. Shurly they would enjoy having house sitters. Just a thought…

  • FreedomFighter

    Communists doing what they do…

    Could they have taken a collection and paid the mans house off? Maybe made a few payments, or taken the 300k soros gave OWS and droped it on the mans house?

    Nope they just try to steal it, like all socialist commies they are not here to help, only to take and take over.

    Old boss same as the new boss… read Animal Farm, just pig head commies if you ask me.

    Laus Deo
    Semper fi

    • 45caliber

      They couldn’t possibly have taken a collection and paid the house off. Very few of them have ever held a real job. Most still live with Mommy when they are at home.

  • Bootsaddle

    Ya gotta wonder who the sneaky little piece of c..p is that’s trying to hide behind the “thing” in front. Probably another stellar contributor to society.
