Stealing housing is the same as stealing anything from a department store. The only difference is tenants do not get arrested and charged. The only ones profiting from an eviction are the attorneys and courthouses. Court fees are astronomical. To top it all off, the judges don't even have the power and/or authority to remove a tenant from the premises. How sad is that?
