...the early morning raid resembled a drug bust with officers sneaking across Frazer’s property in the middle of the night before fifty officers stormed her home to serve an eviction notice.The Nation
...Frazer’s home was foreclosured on fraudulently (broken chain of title) by Investors One Corporation in October 2011, and she has been fighting it in court ever since. In January, activists set up camp on her lawn and told the Frazer family they would defend their home.
Sheriff Thomas Brown said police used “intelligence” to wait until the activists were not present at the home to guard it, and neighbors were asleep, to serve the unprecedented eviction, which includes kicking out Frazer’s 85-year-old mother and 3-year-old grandson. ...police refused to allow Frazer to shower or for her elderly mother to get dressed and told Frazer to behave as if it were a fire drill.
Adding insult to injury, the police then rounded up her dogs and took them to the pound.

From Occupy Atlanta:
Once again, it is clear that the government and our law enforcement officials are being used to serve and protect the interest of the 1% and not of ordinary people or even the laws that they have put in place. Occupy Atlanta is more committed than ever to the fight for Chris Frazer’s home, and the thousands of other homeowners just like her who are being disrespected every day. Sherriff Thomas Brown and the Dekalb County political system showed their true colors today, and made it known where their loyalties lie. Occupy Atlanta and many others in the community are putting Dekalb officials on blast and letting them know that we will not stand for this type of shady behavior.SHAME ON DEKALB COUNTY SHERIFF THOMAS BROWN!
...Chris is scrambling to find a place for her family to stay, a storage unit for all of their belongings, and even has to pay to get the dogs out of the pound. Please donate to help in anyway you can.
