I know this is San Fransicko, but come on. People are illegally living in a duplex they broke into and the police don't remove them I mean, what about the property owner? The police asking them when they would be leaving? If they didn't have La Razza signs they'd be in jail, it is a sanctuary city..well I guess they get what they deserve. I wonder what "rights" the homeowner has......I'd sue the city, the police, the individuals...hell anyone I could. But, then again in the socialist theme of things that are coming , maybe this will be the norm.

From what I remember, "squatters" have certain rights, especially west of the Mississippi.

I'd look into this first.

Squatters Rights

Breaking in while the cops are there would seem to be a crime. The cops seem to be completely at a loss in this. These weren't legal tenants, they are criminals, and for the cops to ask at the door when they are going to leave seems to just encourage it. I guess the law doesn't really doesn't exist in sanctuary cities.

There are a number of sides to this discussion, especially when considering the vast number of possible conditions, locations, type of owners, and situation of the property location and economy.

Civil disobedience, even minor ones like these, are the spirit of America.

Simply calling all squatters criminals worthy of jail is far to simplistic to be a serious discussion or point-of-view.

Breaking into a building is not criminal? So, if people want to just come into your house and live rent free that's o.k. with you? For the police to just stand by and allow this to happen is criminal....

I didn't say it wasn't, but it's not always cut and dry from a legal perspective.

You assume too much, and with no basis. This is a ridiculous statement with no merit. I'd be happy to discuss this, but you'll really have to make a serious effort to make a point.

Perhaps, but in this case it was a "protest", which tends to be a sticky wicket in America. It's where the rights of protesters and the rights of property owners meet here that can get messy.
