A story with Heart

I was happy to hear Deputies refused to evict a 103 year old woman, MSNC reports:

Fulton County Sheriff’s deputies and a moving company hired by the bank showed up at Vita Lee’s Penelope Road home on Tuesday, according to a report on Deutsche Bank apparently holds the mortgage that is being serviced locally by Chase, the station reported. The planned eviction was reportedly the latest move in a legal battle that dates back years.
But when the men saw the frail woman, they opted to leave instead of carry through with the forced move.

"Please don't come in and disturb me no more," Lee told "When I'm gone you all can come back and do whatever they want to."

Shame on Deutsche Bank & Chase for attempting to throw an elderly woman out of her home. It is heartening the Sheriff's police & moving company decided it was not the right thing to do.

She's lived in the home 53 years, now, along w her 83 year old daughter. Vita Lee will soon celebrate her 104th birthday, hopefully in her home.

i like to think that most police officers are like these sheriff deputies, not those spraying human beings with pepper spray as though they were spraying their lawns for ants.
