Organized criminal squatting in Atlanta

Atlanta leads the nation in criminal squatting

The entire state of Georgia has laws protecting squatters. It is illegal for the home-owner to forcibly remove squatters. In Atlanta, the police will generally refuse to provide any assistance and tell you to go to the courts.

According to local media, Atlanta now leads the nation in criminal squatting. It is even being organized for profit on social media.

“We’re seeing situations of trespassing in Atlanta that we’re not seeing anywhere else in this country, in terms of scale.” – CEO of the National Rental Home Council, David Howard

They’d been there for four months since commandeering the crib on, fittingly, Christmas Day. What better day to give themselves a gift? They couldn’t resist also grabbing a whip (car), which proved to be their downfall.
