Prosecutors say Daniel Weston and Mary Ann Parmelee hired two loan modification agents in hopes of keeping their home but believed the men took their money and did nothing.

hmm...well, first off a lot of those loan modification people ARE scammers. That said, if these two guys turn out to be actually BE scamming people, then the perps are gonna walk.

I think the chances for jury nullification on this are pretty slim.
We're talking torture here... a DA can have a field day playing upon the sympathy of the jury for the heinous ordeal those two guys went through. Regardless of just what scumbag bottom-feeders they really are.

Besides, if they were frauds, there are civil courts to take such matters to.
Luring someone under false pretenses so you can kidnap, torture and rob them is taking things just a wee step to far.

I don't think you've met some of the people who are plying this "trade." After a bit, you start fantasizing about strapping them to a metal table, car batteries and cables at hand...a bucket of water and a keg of beer.

Perhaps I have said too much.

No, I hear ya. In fact I submitted an earlier and of course better headline:

Pssssssst. Wanna know a secret?

Even if the guys are scammers you're not entitled to kidnapping, beating, and robbing them. Just a little fyi.

I really don't think alleged fraud allows you to legally kidnap and torture people.
 
2009-10-27 03:02:28 AM  
Seriously, I am surprised there hasn't been more of this.

Then again, maybe it has, but the scammers haven't escaped/lived to tell the tale. There may be a lot of shallow graves in out of the way places in which these scum are taking a long dirt nap.

If you screw with the desparate or thick, you get to deal with the

consequences.

This will never go to trial.

"Entitled" is such an ugly word to use when referring to matters of state. Can we please use "grabtastic" instead?

If they're scammers, i.e really criminals, the state would take them and lock them up (kidnapping), take all their possessions Robbery), and they would probably receive some beatings/assrape/or other stuff that you might call torture during their time in jail.

The people walking away from their mortgages are as much fraudsters as any fake loan modification guy. And for a larger amount of money. I'm sure everyone is looking forward to seeing them tortured.

So that makes it official. Dealing with home loans, from any angle, is like pulling teeth.

You know who I really want to see tortured? The farking abjectly poor. They have no idea how to run a corporation, and they should be killed for it.

Yeah, like that. But with less dignity.

For petty fraud? More like a fine, and restitution to the victim.

An attorney for Gonzalez and Parker says his clients are innocent and the loan modification agents were frauds.

How nice.

I wouldn't convict if there was prison time on the table, only if mandatory psychiatric treatment was the only punishment

Pfft, why are they being charged with a crime? This kind of do-it-yourself, bootstrappy justice is just part of the self-reliant, entrepreneurial spirit that made America great!

On trial? They should be in a parade!

As long as we live in a society where one segment has to lose their homes while another gets wealthy, all in the service of the almighty economy, I have no sympathy for the victims.
