What is one to do when the economy has rocked your world downward?
Perhaps this man is still waiting on Obama to help him?

Poor guy - I feel bad for him. Shame on Fox and everyone else posting "live" videos of this. I hope the good that comes from this, will be someone to step in and try to help him out.

A man's home is his castle!! I just hope he's ready to bring the FULL spectrum of combat power to bear in order to achieve his mission.

This is right down the street from my house, I just drove by it and counted a police helicopter hovering above, 3 sherriff cars, 3 OP police cars and 2 State Troopers. There were reporters and camera crews outside from every KC news station. Tons of neighbors outside,etc.

This is horrible because the neighborhoods around the area have a TON of kids (there are 3 schools in a 2 mile radius...) Hopefully this gets resolved by 3pm....Safely..

How very sad for this man that his personal matters are aired live including his address so everyone can look up his info.

How disgusting that a neighbor comes before the cameras for her 15 minutes.

Must be a pretty damn slow news day in Overland Park, shame, shame on the media!

So are they just serving the eviction notice or are they actually initiating the eviction process?
If they are just serving a notice, why wouldn't he be allowed to barricade himself in the house? Is he required by law to be served in person? I always just assumed they slapped the notice on your door to give you fair warning...

I think we should all pitch in $10 and pay off this month's mortgage for the guy. Maybe then we can dedicate some "change" to this economy unlike Obama.

He didn't pay his mortgage brainiac. I don't recall them mentioning he's doing crack, meth or any other drugs. I also didn't read that he's got any weapons that he's got cocked sideways, nor have pants down to his knees & hat cocked to the side. Chances are, the only person he MIGHT hurt would be himself. I hope that this situation doesn't come to that. Get a clue Tia.

It is a sad situation, but it comes to show that there is more happening throughout the Kansas City area than just Kansas City. I think it's good to show us that in this day and time EVERYONE of is struggling and no one is exempt (no matter where you live)from the failures of our economy. I feel sorry for this man and family members and hope that something can be resolved to where he doesn't lose his home.

I was waiting on someone to say it was Obama's fault. We don't know why he is in the situation he is in. I remember the time I gambled away my rent like an idiot. And that wasn't Obama's fault. So every situation is different and until we hear the story in it's entirety none of us will know. And yes, I think it's a good idea that you go to the news station and make a contribution. That would be very nice.

I don't understand why there are cops and this is being aired on the news. Like Jack said it doesn't mention weapons or anything. With an eviction notice don't you have 24hrs anyways? I feel aweful for this guy this has to be hard enough anyways, without your life is being aired on tv. Agreed Shame on news there are more important things to be focused on.

Yeah I saw this on my way home for lunch. This is also down the street from me. I am glad everyone is okay though, physically speaking. It looks a lot worse than someone would expect for the situation.

When people are faced with this position, like many were during the great depression, they need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and do whatever they need to to survive....even if it means starting over or depending on friends and family. A house is just a house and I have know alot of people who are going through a hard time right now who have come to realize this. Just the fact that he his causing such a fiasco and wasting tax payer money, makes me wonder if he would ever be able to survive what our grandparents went through.

I understand economic times,stresses of every day life, etc., but this guy is not going to win. If he has not already, work with mortgage company, etc., at least communicate. But don't do crazy stuff like this that could get you and others hurt. I'm sure you don't need this outcome on your head.
