Cross-posted from Occupy underground. Note that both mainstream media reports demonize the family and make zero mention of their having been tricked into foreclosure, much less the six fraudulent items in the foreclosure.
The story NOT told by KTLA (family tricked into foreclosure, attempted to work with the bank for years, found six items of foreclosure fraud). If you've ever wanted to see how the media LIE this is it, through omission:
Family Evicted from “Fort Hernandez” in Van Nuys
VAN NUYS, Calif. (KTLA) — Deputies have evicted a family from a Van Nuys home that’s been the site of an ongoing anti-foreclosure demonstration by Occupy protesters.
The Hernandez family was evicted from their home in the 14600 block of Leadwell Street early Thursday morning without incident.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department carried out the eviction with armored vehicles and nearly 100 police personnel. Dump trucks were brought in to break down the encampment.
The home had become known as “Fort Hernandez,” after the family of Javier Hernandez tried to save the foreclosed property by refusing to leave.
Thursday morning’s ouster comes after four years of neglected payments by the owner.
Police said that 18 protesters and five dogs were cleared away from the home. The group had been camped out for more than 100 days to protest the eviction.
(The comments all run on the premise that the eviction was due to the family not paying rent. Bear much false witness, KTLA? Told by banks and the 1% what to report?)
Protesters Removed From Van Nuys Home in Eviction Operation
Nearly 100 personnel from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department carried out an eviction operation Thursday morning at a foreclosed Van Nuys home that became a rallying point for protesters.
The home at 14620 Leadwell St. was at the center of a long-running neighborhood dispute. In 2007, Javier Hernandez bought the home, but his payments stopped after his adjustable rate increased.
The home became a make-shift fortress that included a sign that read, "Save Our Community, Stop Foreclosures." A group of Occupy LA protesters had been living at the home in protest of the homeowners' eviction for nearly two months, according to the sheriff's department.
(More text at the link. Gee. NBC also seemed to somehow miss reporting that the family were tricked into foreclosure and that there were six items of FRAUD against them.)
Your Tax Dollars Just Paid For Armored Vehicles and 100 Law Enforcement Personnel to Evict A Family.
Fort Hernandez stood for more than four months, surviving police harassment and even the sic'ing of the Department of Public Health and the Department of Child Services (responding to bogus complaints that the residence did not have running water) on the Hernandez' by the powers that be.
I don't know why Bank of America wouldn't negotiate a deal with the Hernandez family. But one thing we can be pretty sure of given all we know about the practices of BofA and other large banks -- they are almost certainly lying:
