Foreclosed Homeowners Arrested at Justice Department Protest for Bank Prosecutions

Dozens of people rallied outside the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., on Monday to protest the government’s failure to prosecute big banks for wronging millions of homeowners. Groups including Occupy Our Homes and the Home Defenders League organized the rally to demand punishment for bank misdeeds ranging from predatory lending to wrongful foreclosures. A group of demonstrators with underwater mortgages helped barricade the Justice Department building’s front doors. At least 17 demonstrators were arrested, but some managed to spend the night outside to continue their protest today.
