A Detroit woman and her one-year-old daughter are being forced to live with a squatter in their own home until a housing court decides on eviction proceedings. Homeowner Heidi Peterson claims the squatter, former tenant Missionary-Tracey Elaine Blair, took over the residence while Peterson was away for a year during extensive home repairs. After the necessary repairs were complete, Peterson returned last week only find out that Blair had changed the locks. She had also taken the liberty to decorate the house, rework the plumbing and replace appliances. According to neighbors,

Comments:
Can you imagine the level of rage you would have if this happened to you. I have read of several instances like this across this country. It is just outrageous what they are allowed to get away with.

Property rights are on life support in the USA. The dominos of freedom continue to fall.

Many (MANY) people in this country really don't believe in private property. Pay attention to what government does, especially in the area of zoning.

Ok it so the eviction is a civil matter. What was the basis for the Lien? And wouldn't that be fraud, a criminal matter?

Property rights are under assault because no one defends them. Throw the squatters out in the streets, club them, let them know it isn't safe to sleep, do whatever is necessary and dare any government to tell you whose rights are threatened. What is the problem? That's what the 2nd amendment is for.

This is unbelievable. This loser moves herself and (big shocker here) baby into a house owned by someone else and the law is on the side of the person who committed a B&E and is a trespasser. It just makes you want to weep. This country is a goner..

People don't care passionately about basic rights anymore. You've got wives who are more interested in watching soap operas or Ellen. You've got husbands who are more interested in watching the NFL matches on the TV. Everything is about voyeurism - ie watching. They'll watch while the Constitution is burned, too.

Actually, #5, the baby belongs to the homeowner. The Squatter is the Presidential Candidate. (You couldn't make this stuff up.)

No court should give one iota of credence to someone who moves into someone else's property. Maybe everyone should hang "POSTED" signs on their homes.

I would kill the squatter and bury them in them in the back yard I dig the hole really deep and then plant a tree on top of the body. Then I'd just not tell anyone.

Am I psychotic? This would not bother me at all.

Why am I not surprised by the photos of the squatter ? She was a former tenant ?

What did she expect buying a house in Detroit ?

OP, I've had to endure squatter situations like this more than once.

We bought a foreclosed rental property five months, and tomorrow (supposedly) will finally take possession. In the meantime, the tenant has lived rent-free while we pay the mortgage, property tax, and utilities.

Housing court is rife with stories like this. You have legal title to a property, but the right of possession is at the whim of the housing court judge.

Unfortunately, this is the norm in the northeast. I'm told that in some states (ie, Texas) this sort of behavior not tolerated. Makes be want move there.

This s part of the outsized entitlement mentality that's sprung up since lawless Obama took over.They see him bypassing and ignoring laws,so why shouldn't they. One thing I don't get here is how the squatter could live in the house while being repaired but the owner couldn't?

The squatter probably doesn't have a kid to use as a springboard for welfare.These people adore Obama but miss the fact all his spending is going to white liberals,because they donate.

If you have a deed to the property and pay the taxes, what right does anyone have to move into your house even if it sits empty for several years. Why is this even an issue. Why can't these people call the police and have them thrown out. This country gets crazier by the day.

I know of one squatter who took up residence while the house was being redone. The house was bought as an investment remodel, not as a primary residence - although it was in a very residential neighborhood. The property owner was nice about it and instead of coming on strong arm and starting proceedings, gave the guy time to go back, get his things, get it together, and get out. The guy went back and completely destroyed the newly remodeled kitchen.

Years ago, a friend of mine bought a home in Costa Rica. He was approached one day by a man who enlightened him about squatters who will move in while you're back in the states and offered 'make sure' that didn't happen-for a fee of $25/months which he agreed to. When he returned a few months later, that same man was squatting in his home . It took some a long time and the services of yet another colorful local to get him removed.
We are a becoming a third-world country.

The need for this and any squatter to be forcefully ejected from the premises with extreme prejudice and expediency aside.

If you have an unoccupied property, be sure to have someone check on it regularly.

Not sure what the regs. for Detroit is but in many places they've got to squat without objection/permission from the owner for 10 years before they can make any legal claim on the property.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
