Start throwing these people in jail and they will stop blocking public access. Sheriff Forte is such a pussy as it's his job to remove these people.

Keep it up and you will get the act of violence eviction you are whining about.

Bullies. Some of those defendants might get default judgments against them for non-appearance. The Guard needs to shoot anybody blocking the door.

Eviction is NOT an act of violence. Where in the hell do these people come up with this crap? BTW did anyone notice they have put mostly white people out there this time? Imagine that. Propaganda! there are tons of companies hiring right now. Get to work.

Forte should do his job and arrest these people and let court go into session. But, like his sister JPB he won't do a thing...

Forte is worthless and once again this proves it....congratulation Jackson County you elected him again

What kind of fucked up asshole pretends to be concerned about tenants while demanding they be summarily executed?

Just kicking the can down the road a bit. When the landlord can't pay their mortgage and the property is foreclosed on, they will all be out on the street.

Living in an apartment that you didn't pay for is stealing.
