ATLANTA — Sheriff’s deputies and a moving crew were about to evict a woman and her daughter from their Atlanta home but decided not to go through with it after they saw the women.

WSB-TV reports that Fulton County deputies and the movers, who had been hired by a bank, showed up Tuesday at the home on Penelope Road in northwest Atlanta. The home is shared by 103-year-old Vita Lee and her 83-year-old daughter.

Lee said she knew the deputies were coming to evict her, but that God wouldn’t let them do the wrong thing. Lee said she’s hopeful that arrangements can be made with a bank so that she can continue living in the home. She said the two have lived in the home for the past 53 years.

Thank God for law enforcement officers with a conscience. And shame on those big fat cats at the bank.

Shame on those big fat cats at the bank? they lived in the house for 53 years...why the heck do they not have the house paid off by now? Just because you're old doesn't mean you don't have to pay your bills or be financially responsible.

I agree with kkrirk. While I

I agree with kkrirk. While I am not for putting people out in the street indiscriminately, any reasonable person realizes that you must pay your debts no matter how old you are. It isn't the banks' fault that you did not live up to your end of the bargain. Average present value on properties along that road is 100k. They should have had that paid off long ago.
