Whatta ya do when some son of a bitch takes over your property?

I think the squatter is a thief. He is stealing from the homeowner - and should be arrested, charged, given a trial and if convicted sent to prison - like any other thief.

My opinion: if you're illegally living in someone else's house, you need to be removed.
Dying to live, living to die.

17 million homes stand empty as half a million Americans sleep under bridges. We could kill two birds with one stone. Increase our investment in subsidized rentals.

But if you give people subsidized homes, WHO WILL WE LOOK DOWN ON?
"Tradition" is just a word people use to make themselves feel better about being an asshole.

Squatting is so hard on the legs it should be an Olympic sport.

RE: Squatters
The people haven’t been in the house long enough to establish squatters rights, so the technically, they’re not squatters, they’re simply trespassers in illegal possession of the property. I don’t see any reason why they can’t be evicted, arrested and charged.

I looked it up - in Michigan, if you occupy someone else’s property for 15 years and they don’t start legal proceedings to evict you in that time, the property is yours. The legal term is ‘adverse possession’.
