In 2010 the woman we purchased our home from on an unrecorded land contract changed her mind after 7 months and to get us out quickly, she offered the contents of our home to her co-workers (fellow Police) claiming the contents of our home abandoned and many police personal took her up on her “free offer deal” on a weekend she knew we were going to be out of town. Our home was emptied. 

With up to a dozen law enforcement employees from the Isabella County Sheriff’s Department involved in the plundering of our home, Sheriff Department administrators worked to cover and conceal the event by lying to other local law enforcement  agencies and the local media claiming that we had been evicted when this was not at all the case.

 

 

Looting (Hindi lūṭ, akin to Sanskrit luṭhati, [he] steals; also Latin latrolatronis “thief”)—also referred to as sacking, plundering, despoiling, despoliation, and pillaging—is the indiscriminate taking of goods by force as part of a military or political victory, or during a catastrophe, such as during war,[1] natural disaster,[2] or rioting.[3] The term is also used in a broader sense, to describe egregious instances of theft and embezzlement, such as the “plundering” of private or public assets by corrupt or greedy authorities.[4] Looting is loosely distinguished from scavenging by the objects taken; scavenging implies taking of essential items such as food, water, shelter, or other material needed for survival while looting implies items of luxury or not necessary for survival such as art workprecious metals or other valuables. The proceeds of all these activities can be described as lootplunder, or pillage.
