"But out-of-hand does not even approach how Christine Frazer described the raid, saying in the days since the eviction she and her family, including her 85-year-old mother, daughter and 3-year-old grandson, have been split up and forced to rely on charity."

Well, it was the title of the news article. I wasn't trying to mislead anyone.
But I don't think they expected an eviction at gunpoint at 3am.
Amazing that the foreclosing company was not the company of record when the foreclosure happened. Legally she would be able to sue for far more than the worth of the house. Not just the company claiming that they hold the mortgage, but the sheriff's dept. the judge, etc. In fact, it would be in the company's best interests to settle out of court for a clear deed to the house.

Thanks for those who added details.. SO it wasn't just some average family in financial trouble and minding their own business when the first move to evict comes in a bum rush at gunpoint. Occupy got involved. :
They opened my door. I knew my rights that I didn’t have to open the door. They came with a locksmith, drilled off the locks, came into my house, with a flashlight in one hand and pistol in the other, [shouting] ‘Who’s in the house? Who’s in the house?’”
“Who do you think was in the house?” she asked. “My picture and my story have been in the local DeKalb paper. They knew exactly who. Yes, they knew Occupy was there.
“What I didn’t want to do was to put a whole lot of people in my jail who wanted to be in my jail, at $53.50 a day, which is a burden to the taxpayers,”
First off, if she paid $240k for a $40k loan it is because she signed the loan agreement for that. If she didn't agree with it, she shouldn't have signed it.
