New Indiana law allows confiscation of private property without notification

The comment below received from activist Pete Boggs, is worthy of its own entry. Please read and feel free to comment. We told you that the government was just as predatory as the "predatory lenders" that they recently bailed out. If this isn't heartless, I don't know what is. How about it Mayor Ballard? Are you going to let homes in Marion county get sold at a sheriff's sale without notifying the owners? We're sure Frank Anderson would not care.

Also I read just today via the Drudge Report that predators rich from record oil profits are positioning to swoop in and buy foreclosed homes for pennies on the dollar. You can read about it here: "Oil Rich Fund Eyeing Foreclosed Homes".

Pete Boggs writes:
Citizens need to know that the noticing requirements were changed dramatically (HB 1145 ?) during the last session of the legislature. Rather than notifying citizens directly, counties may now publish foreclosure notices TWO WEEKS before the Sheriff's sale, where many UNSUSPECTING OWNERS WILL LOOSE THEIR PROPERTIES NEXT MONTH.

The Marion County treasurer's office is telling people (only when they ask) that the sale will be held in September this year (vs. the traditional October timing), but as of last week they didn't have an exact date for the sale!!!

An attentive opposition party might notice that the "party in power" promised tax "relief" in the specious form of HB 1001 & the Capitol City's new mayor was elected on a platform of eliminating property taxes on homesteads, in a county that's about to avail itself of a newly developed tool of CONFISCATION (HB 1145). Wonder how that'll play in the election(s) to come... ?

Funny, when it comes to considering public interests (like repeal), the best our "representatives" can do is a bogus round of golf- er summer study.
