After looking at the websites and listening to the video again, I beleive the homeowner got behind on his mortgage. The sheriff said he wouldnt be there if the mortgage was being paid. Mr smooth talk said "the bank has been paid" which I beleive is a reference to a bank bail out similar to ours.
Im sorry the guy is getting foreclosed on, but if you cant make your payments why should you be able to stay? The only reason I could get from Mr smooth talk is because its against their constitution to go into a guys house, and if you cant go into the house you cant really kick them out for not making the payments.
Ironically, Ive not heard one person complain about getting foreclosed on in the usa, but Ive heard lots of employeed people current on payments walking away from their homes because they owe more than they are worth. Often hear something like "the banks got their bailout, its time for mine" as they rationalize walking away from their responsibility.
I own a modest house which I had paid off when I was 40 yo. I hate to see people struggle, but I am easily annoyed by people who think they should be able to stay in their homes even though they aint paying the man.
