This is something that happened in a major US city, which is very distant to many of us. Yet, here it is. We have heard about it, and to a degree,
we have seen it.
I am getting a creepy feeling from this....like it is some kind of warning
of things to come.
And a lesson is here. It's called "How Not to Behave".
If and when any of us are witness to this type of injustice, maybe we will remember this post, and be able to step forward with a little more courage
and intention. Speak up for the underdog.
Because this was a bank forclosure, it is worse than if it were a renter.
In renting situations, the renter would be aware of the person's circumstances, and perhaps start notifying relatives to help her prepare for this,
or even social services to help her transition to assisted living, or something else. Anything but put her out on the street like so much garbage.
But a bank? We see the continuation of what we already know them to be. Greedy and without humanity. I understand mortgages must be paid.
But common decency dictates you do not put a woman out on the street alone, without at least calling social services. But the police, I assume, had
to do that. And a stranger had to call the police to get protection and assistance for her.
The Bank could have made those calls when they called the movers to go move her out. It might have lessened her trauma and humiliation.
