HOA Murders! Again!

Professor Gary Solomon, one of the prominent national voices in the Homeowners’ Rights Movement, has long predicted that the nation will see a wave of violence in Homeowners Associations. There’s no doubt this man is precognizant. This weekend’s news proves him to be a real prophet.
In Harrisburg, North Carolina, Anthony Charles Hardy lived exactly between homes of the president of the Windsor Forest Homeowners Association and a house occupied by another member of the board. This weekend Hardy murdered both board members, and then committed suicide in a subsequent standoff with the SWAT team. Three people dead.
Do you want to be a prophet? Just go to your annual homeowners association meeting and watch the fury and frustration vented by homeowners against the board of directors. It really is a little scary.
Of course, there’s absolutely no excuse for murder. None. But is this violence just wildly coincidental?
Arizona resident George Staropoli, one of the pioneers of the Homeowners’ Rights Movement, points out in a recent blog the arrogance of the national HOA lawsuit industry with the artwork on the covers of industry magazines from several years ago. The industry, the CAI in this case, is absolutely mocking the coming wave of homeowners who are screaming about the rights they’ve unexpectedly lost by signing the CC&R papers for a new home.
While realizing that homeowners are turning to murder and mayhem in states like North Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri, Florida, Arizona and others, try to comprehend why leaders of the HOA money scam would mock simple homeowners who are just trying to understand how and why they lost all their Constitutional rights.  Please, please read Staropoli’s blogpost linked below (all the way to the end to see the magazine covers) and make sure you take in the full impact of the HOA industry’s attitude toward the rest of us. They owe us a huge apology.

From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.

    The North Carolina news coverage on this story was able to spin it that the guy was a loner with issues. From his previous experience of having an altercation with a neighbor over some landscaping should have been an indicator the man didn’t want somebody cutting his trees down either. While I don’t believe in violence or murder, I do think this BOD could have found a more suitable solution to the trees in the power line issue and possibly all three of these men would still be alive? My observations have been that certain board members love to provoke homeowners. Perhaps this tragedy should serve as an example of what not to do to one’s neighbors?

    And even now, CAI -IL resorts to public government analogy in order to seize a member’s home by forcible entry — just occupy it — for nonpayment of assessments. The government needs taxes to function, and so do HOAs! See CAI amicus in Spanish Court on my site.

      Yes, that’s an unbelievably bizarre legal brief. And I urge everyone to go to pvtgov.org, not only to read the hypocritical CAI brief in the Spanish Court appeal, but to also see the many other ideas, discoveries and conclusions by George Staropoli.

    A conservative is a libertarian who’s been mugged.

    A libertarian is a conservative who’s been arrested.

    What do you call a libertarian who’s been abused by his HOA?

    Because dealing with my HOA made me realize that conservatives and libertarians are as ignorant of the real-world consequences of their ideology as your stereotypical college campus Leftist wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt driving around in a Prius sporting a “Hope and Change” bumper sticker.
