    “This is our house now:” ACORN mob begins breaking into homes
    By Michelle Malkin • February 20, 2009 09:25 AM

    On Wednesday, I said prepare for lawlessness as ACORN’s civil disobedience mob steps up pressure for President Obama’s mortgage entitlement expansion.

    Well, are you ready, Baltimore? (Hat tip - Jeff Quinton) ACORN’s troops are breaking the padlocks and breaking into homes. And this is just the start. Caution: OBAMACORN at work.

    A community organization breaks into a foreclosed home in what they are calling an act of civil disobedience.

    The group wants to train homeowners facing eviction on peaceful ways they can remain in their homes.

    Derek Valcourt reports their actions are not without controversy.

    Near Patterson Park, the padlock on the door and the sign in the window tells part of Donna Hanks foreclosure story.

    “The mortgage went up $300 in one month,” said Hanks, former homeowner.

    She says the bank refused to modify her loan and foreclosed, kicking her out of the house in September.

    The community group ACORN calls Hanks a victim of predatory lending.

    “This is our house now,” said Louis Beverly, ACORN.

    And on Thursday afternoon, they literally broke the foreclosure padlock right off the front door and then broke into the house, letting Hanks back in for the first time in months.
    Taxpayer-subsidized anarchy is on the way.

    Mr. President? Mr. President?

    "This is our house now," said Louis Beverly, ACORN.

    And on Thursday afternoon, they literally broke the foreclosure padlock right off the front door and then broke into the house, letting Hanks back in for the first time in months.

    "We are actually trespassing, and so this is a way of civil disobedience to try to stay in the house," said Beverly. "Legally it's wrong, but homesteading is the only means that she has left to stay in her house. And we feel as though this is the right thing to do at this particular time to save this family."

    Inside, there's spray paint on the walls and evidence that someone has possibly been remodeling.

    The group says it was staging similar demonstrations in six other cities nationwide while urging a moratorium on foreclosures. They want that until President Obama's stimulus plan begins on March 4. The plan is designed to help threatened homeowners.

    "As you all can see, Donna is reclaiming her home, and she's putting a lock on her door at this time," said Beverly.

    But that padlock won't stay there for long.

    The current property managers told Eyewitness News they were unaware of ACORN's actions Thursday and were contacting the police and their lawyers.
