He sounds like a liberal who thinks everything should be given to him.

This is really too bad...he needs to go to the actual foreclosure hearing and demand to see the original bank documents with orignial signatures when he obtained his loan. Most of the time the banks cannot produce these documents, hence they can't foreclose on property they don't actually own or have original documents on. The judge will dismiss the case. This is because almost all loans are sold so many times that the original documents are lost, not kept with the file or not transferred over when the loan is bought, on most occassions several times during the life of the loan. So, now, IF he goes to his foreclosure hearing he will be financially responsible for wrecking the house and will have to pay the difference for what the bank sells the property for and what is actually owed on the balance of the loan. Best to start filing bankruptcy now.

people are just tired i think. Iknow adults should be more responsible with their finances, but some things are outta of your control. Its sad to see so many homes lost, and when they are taken back by the bank to just sit empty for 1-2 yrs makes no sense. Why not rent back to the ppl who owned them, thay is an option to help themget back on their feet and regain their credit and also save the bank from losing out.

Cant you just crap in the crapper after they turn the water off.
Not like I had any choice when they stole my dead moms house but it expressed the same sentiments after leaving my childhood home.
That's why I love the Constitutions prohibition on making bank paper legal tender. Article One section 8 and 10. They dont teach you that in school but most of you folks can hardly read in Columbus anyway.

It hurts when the Big Boys win and we're still screwed. The Big Boys needed a reminder that when you take everything away from a man, and he has nothing left to lose, he becomes dangerous. I think what this guy did was healthy. It sickens me how we are all just sitting around hoping the same turkeys who created this situation will "fix" it for us. We have become effete and lazy and enslaved. I think the Tea Baggers are barking up the wrong tree by blaming the gov't for everything (boy will they be surprised when it turns out not to be the gov't but rather the special interests, banks, & corporations--and us lazy greedy fools who allow it) but people do need to wake up and see who's doing what to whom and get mad. I just had to sell my house (I'm moving) and people coming to look acted like I should be giving it away for free because there are so many "free" houses. Hello, I've lived here 20 years and improved the heck out of it, I am not in default .. I felt like torching it too. It's not the gov't we should be mad at--it's US. For being stupid. And not waking up.

Banks need to bear a part of the weight of this cross. My husband has been unemployeed since September, 2009 (THANKS CROSSWINDS DISPATCH FACILITY)and we have a 10+ acre farm in B.F.E. that nobody would want if the bank foreclosed. We are an hour from Cols (but I/we travel it every day)just so that we can live in some relative peace and quiet. We do not owe alot on our farm, considering other farms likes ours, we basically stole it but it makes more sense to me to have the banks rent or somehow make it more advantageous for owners to stick around instead of destroy or destruct the property. People are losing their minds because the lack of decent employment and are making bad decisions, but I don't blame them, I feel for them, I only hope we don't become one of them some day if my husband doesn't find suitable employment. I just couldn't take thinking my beloved farm sitting empty for 1 or 2 years rotting away only because of the greedy banks.

The banks are as much,if not moreso to blame as the people who didn't read the fine print on all the sub prime loans that they signed.In the 1990's,The banks were giving loans for $150-$250,000+ homes to people making $9-$13 per hour & telling them,"sure,we can get you into this house for $650/month,no problem".What they DIDN'T tell the borrowers is that these custom tailored loans almost always have a balloon payment due after like 5 years,or,the loan would have to be refinanced at a substantially jacked interest rate which would then take their payments from say,$650/mo to $1,200 / mo.These loans(an example) started out as a limited fixed rate for X number of years @ say 6.1% interest.After X number of years,the loan came due as a balloon payment in full,OR, you refinanced as a variable rate & with a substantially higher interest rate.
The banks were sharky and aggressive about this type of loan,they tried it on me in the mid 1990's when the new house boom was heralding the rise of many projects.I was looking to buy then and was fortunate enough to read the fine print and avoid disaster from one of these type of loans.The banks were tailoring these loans so they could sell more loans to just about anyone,and,they KNEW that alot of these buyers would never be able to handle the loan after the rates went up.
Anyhow,actions like what this man did are to be expected.When someone has lost their job,all their money and now their house with nothing else left to lose,that's when radical and irrational actions happen.

LOL,the banks are greedy because they want you to pay back the money they gave you to buy the home you live in.Please elaborate how they're greedy.I think you're greedy for crying about having to re-pay money loaned to you.

You both could get a job and keep your home if you really want too.Nobody owes you anything..........
